DRONES FOR ENGINEERING inspectionS and ASSESSMENTS

The use of drones has proven to be a major time, energy, and money saver for both engineers and their clients. Useful for evaluating the exterior conditions of facilities, especially those in hard-to-reach spaces or locations, drones can provide fast, accurate, and detailed imagery for use in construction and engineering projects while conducting inspections that would previously have required human intervention.

AERIAL INSPECTIONS

Industries carry out regular inspections of their equipment and infrastructure to ensure it is in safe working order. Human inspections have shortcomings, as people are often limited when it comes to working at heights or in confined spaces. Inspections carried out by a drone can address the operational challenges faced by human inspections.

 

AERIAL ASSESSMENTS

Surveying, monitoring and reporting, drones are well equipped to survey developed and developing infrastructure, making them the perfect infrastructure project tool.

SURVEYS

Using photogrammetry (a surveying and mapping technique), drones provide quick deployment and turn-around times with accurate reporting from point cloud datasets. Survey ground control, processing, and reporting tasks are carried out by our experienced and registered surveyors.

LIDAR SURVEYS

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges to objects. These light pulses – combined with other data – can be used to generate precise, three-dimensional information.
