Construction is another industry that is likely to benefit significantly from the use of drone technology. In fact, according to Goldman Sachs, construction will be the biggest user of commercial drones in the future. Already, major construction companies such as Caterpillar are using drone technology to generate aerial insights.
Drones can benefit the construction industry in a number of ways. For instance, drones are very helpful for initial construction surveys as they can provide detailed pictures of the land prior to construction. Thanks to advances in drone technology, UAVs are now able to produce extremely accurate contour maps and 3D models.
Drone services are also very helpful for project monitoring as builders can use drones to collect real-time data about projects and understand what’s happening on site. Aerial insights improve progress tracking and help builders identify problems early, before they become costly. Additionally, drone surveys can also support site logistics and enhance overall security.
