Drones In Construction – Capturing the unsighted

General Introduction


Inefficiencies and inaccuracies have been a concern for the construction and architecture industry for a long time. However, the introduction of new technologies such as drones has been transforming the to conventional practices in AEC for better productivity and accuracy. Accuracy of data not only enhances the quality of work but also eliminates delays in schedules and cost overruns. Although the technologies have been offering several benefits in a long run, the AEC industry has been a little bit behind in embracing them.

What Are Drones or UAVs?

Drone, also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), is a technology that facilitates data capture usually from locations that are inaccessible to humans. The data is acquired in the form of images, videos and point clouds. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are commonly used for capturing the spatial data of the landmass or any structure, offering an aerial view of the scanned object. Drones for construction and surveying capture accurate details of the structures through in-built sensors such as LiDAR, multispectral, RGB and thermal sensors.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are an upgraded version of the traditional survey instruments and offer vast possibilities in surveying technology. The construction sector leverages several benefits of drone technology, such as accuracy, cost-efficacy and increased productivity. Also, the technology has a wide array of applications ranging from aerial mapping to remote monitoring of construction sites.


How Are Drones Implemented in Construction?

Drones and UAVs are often used for data collection through aerial surveying on construction sites. A systematic process is followed in order to collect the data using the UAV.

Check for local regulations – Flying drones are still prohibited in specific areas of many countries due to privacy and many such factors. So, before deploying an unmanned aerial vehicle into the
