Drone Use Soars in Transportation ConstructionAuthor/Presenter: Schneidawind, John
According to a survey conducted by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials in 2019, 36 states have used unmanned aerial systems (UAS), also known as drones, in transportation construction applications, including inspections and incident response operations. Drones have impacted transport project sites in many ways. UAS technology increases data collection while reducing risk to crew members and the public, accelerates the rate at which information is collected for project planners, and surveys possible damage for efficient recovery practices. Drones coupled with DroneDeploy, a software end users use to process images and data for an accurate view of the landscape under construction, is a revolutionary emergence for transportation construction around the globe.
