Extracting Consumable Construction Intelligence from Drone Data

Chidambaram Somu
Virtual Construction Manager, DPR Construction
Post processing drone data for field management and as-builting in construction The advent of drone technology is disrupting traditional delivery methods in several industries around the globe, including construction. In this session, we will explore how drone technology, in conjunction with image post-processing software, acts as a data collector to deliver 3D as-built information with unbelievable accuracy. Also learn how construction monitoring and progress reporting using drones is changing the way we manage safety, productivity and quality on our jobsites. Using drones as data collection tools has already proven valuable, with time and labor savings of up to 75% compared to manual laser scanning. Not only does the use of drone technology maximize efficiency and support LEAN systems in construction operations, but the accuracy and ease with which we can now deliver as-built conditions to clients provides incredible value. Attend this session to explore the most recent developments, industry updates and latest use cases for drones in construction.
