For engineers, construction businesses and clients, drones are a vital tool used for capturing data. These flexible tools enable project teams to gather and collect large volumes of highly accurate information in a safer way.
Drones have changed the way we capture information. Before drones became a part of the industry, engineers and surveyors often resorted to placing or attaching cameras and other types of sensors to low flying aircraft or helicopters, and in some cases, on cranes and cherry pickers, to capture data.
The arrival of drones has provided engineers with an innovative and flexible platform which can hold several different types of sensors such as high-resolution cameras, video cameras, laser scanners, thermal cameras and electromagnetic energy (EME) sensors.
