How drones are changing the construction industry

The application of these unmanned aircraft has grown particularly in the construction industry to help companies improve accuracy and productivity at the construction site. As acquisition and deployment costs gradually decrease making the technology more accessible, more construction and civil engineering companies are benefiting from this technology. There are several benefits of using drones in construction, such as improving the accuracy of surveying large areas, collecting and sharing data, improving investment quality, and aerial surveillance surveillance, which provide more security for investment. Improving the management of these areas has helped several companies to keep their infrastructure projects on track and avoid costly delays. Let’s look more closely at some of its benefits: design errors are responsible for 38% of construction problems. Inaccurate and incomplete projects can delay the work and exceed the budget as the failures increase. Visual documentation of progress using drones can limit or even eliminate these problems, capturing highly accurate data from across the site. Whenever necessary, drone operators can take off their aircraft and perform data collection, which means that there is no interruption in construction work. The collected data can be loaded onto a cloud-based platform, allowing contractors and investors to access the data from anywhere, anytime, and easily interpret the information. Innovations in the systems that operate from drones now allow contractors to produce detailed 3D maps and models using real-world data and images from the workplace. This highly accurate data can cut costs and eliminate delays by helping teams align with their activities, reducing the risk of design errors and avoiding rework. For example, in monitoring the major construction work for the new landfill in the city of Fortaleza, in Ceara state, carried out by the company DronDrones Technologies for three years, a data analysis and visualization platform were used to capture high-resolution georeferenced aerial images. What operators and engineers did was to mark the ground control points and operate the drones automatically, allowing them to access high-precision surveys without causing any interference in the progress of the work, which comprised an area equal to 120 football fields. As with monitoring the progress of the work, when the 3D mapping is combined with an analytical platform, it is possible to share this data with the whole team and also with third parties. Contractors can store and share a single data source in the cloud. Drone-enhanced digital aerial mapping also means that each team member is aware of the progress of the work, and everyone is working with the same updated information. Instead of taking hours, or even days to cover a large area in the traditional way, by using drones it is possible to provide a real-time solution of the entire extension of the project. – https://administradores.com.br/artigos/como-os-drones-est%C3%A3o-mudando-o-setor-de-constru%C3%A7%C3%A3o
