Inspection of buildings and traffic routes using drones is getting a vital part of daily construction business.
The advantages are clear: high rise structures, like e.g. power masts, can be inspected less dangerously for workers and almost noiselessly for the environment, when drones are used instead of helicopters.
Undersides of bridges of any size can be inspected immediately, without scaffolding having to be set up.
Motorways or railways can be checked for passability or damages, e.g. caused by fallen trees after storms or through ice coverage.
The impact of recent floods on traffic routes can be evaluated in real time.
