Abstract:
The use of unmanned aerial vehicles could soon be the status quo for construction companies around the world. The devices allow rapid and efficient inspection and mapping of construction sites. Low-level aerial photography has adequate resolution for generation of accurate three-dimensional models. While the technical possibilities are unlimited for using these vehicles in construction, major hindrances are created by regulatory constraints.
