Coming to a Construction Site Near You: Drones

The next time you hear a buzzing sound on your job site, it may not be a power tool. It could be a drone.

Automated Data Collection

Currently, pilots are required to monitor and operate a drone every time it flies. But what if all drone operators had to do is schedule flights and review data? And drones took care of the rest — navigating flights around structures and adjusting course automatically to create the most accurate map or 3D model possible? Drones will make site safety and monitoring smooth and accurate.

Seamless Integration with Industry Tools

Architecture, engineering, and construction professionals all rely on BIM software to design and manage a project. Integration with drone software makes the creation of 3D models even easier, leading to conclusive insights around progress tracking to design plans. From reducing project inefficiencies to recommendations for keeping a project on track, drones streamline every aspect of the process.

Highly Accurate Maps and 3D Models

Machine learning and AI (Artificial Intelligence) helps drones identify objects and ground control points on site. A drone with the right software can compile instant insights before it even lands (see: Live Map). Site managers can measure daily stockpile volumes or detect dangerous areas within minutes — all without human intervention.

For real-time decision making on the job site, use DroneDeploy’s suite of tools to make instant area, length, and volume measurements.

“I can tell how many square feet of roof we’ve put down, how much square footage of concrete is left to pour. If we’re trying to figure out truck access, we can measure the width of a road or gate or how much room we need to clear out for material to make the site clean and organized.” — Ryan Moret, Field Solutions Manager, McCarthy Building Companies
