Drones are a valuable construction tech tool
The use of drones has increased dramatically, and they have become an integral tech tool for the commercial construction industry and construction teams. Drones are revolutionizing:
- Surveying Land & Mapping
Drones can replace traditional land surveying methods in the construction industry at a rapid pace, reducing time, labor costs, and human error. They can also provide 360-degree panoramic imagery in minutes, saving up to 20 times the amount of topographical mapping.
- Project Management
Throughout construction, drones can monitor site construction 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Drones can provide data in real time, capturing high-resolution images, which helps with every step of project management.
- Worker Safety
Worker safety is a critical issue on job sites that drones can help monitor by surveilling teams. According to Bizrentz, drones have increased safety by 55% by making hard-to-reach measurements for your workers while monitoring for falls and accidents.
- Data Collection:
Drones combined with AI-driven software allow powerful system processing and data collection that can be sent to a computer via drone software, allowing users to analyze, interpret, and organize collected data.
