Drones lift construction to new heights
Before digging and pouring concrete, one of the first steps of any construction work is to survey and physically stake the land based on the blueprints. The staked reference points include instructions on the work that needs to be done – for instance, how deep to dig in order to place the pipeline at the right depth. The EU-funded CivDrone project is introducing a faster, smarter and more reliable way to get this job done. It’s developing a drone fitted with a real-time kinematic positioning system to automate the construction layout and stakeout process in construction projects. The drone flies based on the desired coordinates and inserts the stakes in the ground.
