How Can Drones Enhance the Safety of Enterprises

Enterprise Technology Review | Wednesday, April 01, 2020

Drones are already starting to be used to capture images of hazardous materials from job sites and access areas. However, UAVs are used to inspect unsafe buildings by building teams around the world, maintain better safety records, make models that enable better planning and communication, and ensure that projects stay on track and within budget.

FREMONT, CA: Drones in industries have become fast-growing productivity-enablers, whether in surveying and mapping or property inspections. Drones streamline and automate processes within these industries ' various core pillars. Think of energy or mining. These high-cost industries have a lot to do with every decision they make. The amount of input, output, and services frequently amounts to millions of units.


Drones can assist police in their work. Drones recently helped arrest a suspect fleeing a casino in California, and drones were used in Michigan to evaluate crash sites. During hostage situations, during order to capture images and 3D scans, micro-drones the size of insects may fly undetected into tight spaces, so police know what they are dealing with.

Landmine hunting

The working prototype that can be fitted in a three-step process with various tools to scan for and kill landmines. In a grid pattern, it flies over minefields and uses a camera to create the area's 3D map. At a low level, it goes back over the zone, with a metal detector hanging under it. It senses where the mines are located and take the form of GPS waypoints to identify their positions on a map. The drone finally returns to the mines and explosives deposits on them, which are then detonated remotely.

Workplace safety

Security at work is another area that can be revolutionized through the use of a drone. There were 4,386 employees killed on the job in 2014, according to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Construction is the most harmful of all sectors. One in five on-the-job deaths occurs on a building site, with drops being the leading cause of death. A worker is dropping from a high place affected nearly half of all building deaths. Holding people on the ground and allowing robots to do the dirty work is the best way to prevent falls.
