Real Time Measurements with Augmented Reality

Augmented reality has the potential to change how we interact with everything in the world around us by adding an extra layer of information on top of what we can see. With Control Tower, you can easily get the measurements of buildings and roofs in real-time as you fly the drone. Using Control Tower’s unique augmented reality, a simple tap of the button reveals a live ruler that continually adjusts itself to give you measurements of building walls, roofs, doors, windows, or really whatever you can point your drone at!

To use the Live Ruler, start a Freestyle (manual, hands-on) flight and tap on the full-screen video view after taking off. Tap the Ruler button in the upper right to show the ruler, or tap it again to turn the ruler off.
