In Italy every year, the hydrogeological instability causes the destruction of roads, buildings, etc., causing victims and countless economic damage. The monitoring of natural hazards, the evaluation of their impact and the general risk assessment are therefore decisive steps towards the selection and sizing of adequate protection measures. In this paper we intend to present an innovative system that allows us to monitor landslide risk areas and to study landslide phenomena through the use of UAVs. Data are acquired thanks to an automated system of UAVs and wireless charging platforms (capable to acquired, to transmit and to store data); the acquired data are stored automatically in a special platform that allows us to create the point cloud and 3D models of the investigated area (which in turn they are superimposed on the digital models created in previous monitoring), also allowing the creation of the land mass displacement’s sequence in a video. Finally, in relation to early warning, the system allows civil protection to be warned in the event of a landslide risk (start of new landslides or continuation of landslides that have already begun) which in this way will be able to warn the population also through social media.
