Gas and oil remain the significant sources of energy in different parts of the globe despite extensive criticism from various sectors. These two commodities usually lie deep under the ground, and their exploration can be challenging due to multiple factors. Fracking is one of the methods used for oil and gas exploration, but the technique can be dangerous.
Many drilling companies believe that the process of fracking can help recover trillions of cubic feet of shale gas underneath different parts of the UK. However, fracking is controversial due to earth tremor fears, and the process is also costly.
Instead, new technology like gas sniffing drones can play a significant role in the surveying of land for these precious commodities. This technology can help prevent things like dangerous gas explosions as well as unsafe working conditions. If you have an interest … Read the rest
UAV’s On Construction Sites
The use of drones in construction is set to grow as legislation eases and more benefits are discovered.
For some, drones just provide a great form of aerial photography to get a bird’s eye view on a project, for others, the additional 3D scanners and cloud software mean more accurate mapping and effective communication of ideas.
Another advantage of using UAVs that cannot be overlooked is safety. With the right equipment and practices, site safety records could improve.
Identifying problems before workers put themselves at risk
The most obvious safety aspect about using a drone in these situations is that they can be used to fly into areas that may not be safe for site workers.
If there are concerns about an area that may pose a safety risk and site managers require a close-up … Read the rest
Drones In Construction Processes
As the number of jobs that drones can do for us expands at a fast pace, it is becoming increasingly clear that these UAVs have the potential to be more than just a toy or an aide for basic photography and delivery systems.
The more that companies test out the capabilities of these unmanned vehicles, the more they learn about their potential.
This is certainly the case in industries such as mining, land management, farming, and construction.
Drones are providing new information and new solutions to problems to increase the effectiveness of a project and even make work sites safer.
In the UK, Crossrail has been working on a project of their own to test the potential of drones in the expansion of the rail network. That project is Innovate18.
What is the aim of
