The use of commercial drones in the workplace are steadily rising with many industries touting the benefits of implementing them in the workplace.
While drones have been speculated in recent years for reinventing the delivery industry, commercial drones such as the cargo drone are in high demand for the benefits of affordable transportation and swift collection of visual information.
Uses for drones in the workplace
There are 4 industries that stand out in implementing the use of drones where doing so has significantly helped to speed up processes and gather more accurate data.
These industries are:
- Agriculture. Farmers use drones to help them to better understand and keep an overview of crop health, soil type and quality, water usage and heat impacts. Because drones are so affordable to use compared to other airflight methods, drones now commonly replace traditional aerial surveillance models with the benefit of a significantly lower price.
- Construction. Site surveying or error reduction are among the highest uses for drones in the construction industry. Commercial drones can also contribute additional value to the worksite by detecting potential accidents, which can be decreased by up to 91 percent. Other areas in construction that drones are used for are roof inspection, building sites, and utility use.
- Maintenance and Development. Traditional uses for air and land vessels can cost businesses almost 12 times as much as deploying drones to do the same work. In the maintenance and development industry, drones are mostly used for infrastructure inspection on wind turbines, communication towers, bridges, oil platforms, and solar farms. This can save time and can also be safer than using helicopters and boats.
- Inventory and Warehouse. In warehouses, drones offer a speedy approach to conducting inventory checks as it takes significantly less time than done manually. This allows businesses to save exceptional amounts of money.
