Application: Systems and methods for managing assets (Patent ID: US20240070899A1)

The patent filed by Capital One Financial Corp. describes a system for managing assets using a drone equipped with LiDAR sensors and an image capture device. The system can receive image data from the drone, identify assets, their condition, and location through computer vision, and generate dynamic reports. The system can also determine the lifespan and age of assets, provide floorplans and three-dimensional maps, and send notifications if image data is not received for a set time.

Additionally, the system can use machine learning models to determine optimal resolutions for objects in a space, allowing the drone to zoom in on objects accordingly. The drone can interact with objects like electronic locks or switches, and send image data based on optimal resolutions to the server. It can also detect inaccessible objects and notify the server accordingly. This innovative system offers a comprehensive solution for asset management through drone technology, enhancing efficiency and accuracy in asset monitoring and reporting.
