The Massive Opportunities for Drones in Construction

By Construction Tech Review | Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Drones are transforming the way construction companies do business, helping them coordinate more efficiently, track progress regularly, and complete projects faster.

FREMONT, CA: The use of drones in construction has already altered the way buildings are made. In the past few years, drones have brought improvements in construction, ranging from increased accuracy in reporting to enhancing safety conditions to cutting costs and boosting efficiency. AI-driven software in drone technology contains powerful systems for processing raw visual data to offer detailed maps of construction sites. With drones making it easier for companies to provide visual data on the progress of a construction project, clients can now get updates on how things are proceeding. Read on to know more.

The major benefit to using a drone in construction is getting fast, accurate visual data of a site. This data can then be leveraged in a number of ways. It can be shared with customers, with teams, used to help enhance safety, and to focus initiatives toward completing a project faster. Construction projects are often huge operations. While building, visual data is the only way to know what’s happening on-site. Project managers for construction firms will tell that real-time control is the most difficult thing to maintain. Real-time control needs real-time data. Usually, data is gathered by construction personnel walking a site on foot, manually collecting information as they go. But this is labor-intensive and slow and doesn’t enable companies to react to changes on the ground quickly.

The drone’s data will be more thorough and accurate because the drone can get visual footage constantly while in flight. This footage can be processed automatically using software developed just for this purpose into several kinds of maps of the entire site. Also, there are places on construction sites that are too dangerous for a person to enter. But a construction drone can fly overhead and generate a record of things happening within a dangerous area, offering crucial information that will help decide how to proceed.

Construction firms are already starting to use drones in a significant way, but this is just the beginning. Over the years, drones will be used more and more for construction work. The world is going to see drone technology and software continue to emerge, with enhancements in automation supporting drone companies get the visual data they require even more quickly, at a lower and lower cost.
