DJI Drones for the Construction Sector

DJI M300RTK

Have you ever felt a significant void in the construction sector? A report published by AutoDesk & FMI reported that insufficient project data and miscommunication are the cause of 52% of reworks on construction sites. These reworks translate to severe delays in the process, higher cost, labour, and significantly more. Apparently, comprehensive real-time monitoring is the need of the hour, and right now, drone-powered solutions are the only way to achieve this. Drone solutions can help us in every single step in the construction process – be it mapping the construction plot, construction progress monitoring, asset inspection and more. As per Allied Market Research, the construction drone market is expected to reach nearly $12 billion by 2027. Wondering why? The PwC report states that implementing drones in your construction efforts makes a crucial difference in managing costs, controlling risks, increasing safety and influencing outcomes.

Drones for Flare Stack Inspections

A searing flame rising out of a towering structure is one of the most popular imagery connected with oil and gas activities; just look at our thumbnail picture. If you are a professional from the Oil and Gas sector, you would know that it’s a Flare Stack and how crucial it is. Routine flare stack inspections followed by proper maintenance are the ONLY way to ensure your Flare Stacks’ integrity. However, it should be underlined that we cannot use the hazardous, time-consuming, and labor-intensive typical inspection procedures to determine the compatibility of such essential infrastructures. Let’s dig further; here’s an article about the Importance of Flare Stacks in Oil and Gas Operations, and most importantly, advantages of Drone-powered solutions for your Flare Stack Inspections.

DJI Drones for Oil and Gas Sector

The Global Market for drones in the Oil and Gas sector is expected to reach 16.72 billion USD by 2025, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 35.24% from 2019. Almost all the major players in the Oil and Gas sectors have completely migrated to drone-powered solutions. For instance, BP, one of the world’s seven oil and gas “supermajors”, is one of the early adopters of drones in their operations. Drones for Oil and Gas sector is a game changer; they make your operations Safer, Faster, Cost-effective and way more Efficient. Are you worried about the pain points in your Oil and Gas operations? Well, DJI manufactures “solutions” rather than products. This article talks about how DJI drones empower you with the right solution against each pain point in your Oil and Gas operations. Hopefully, you’ll get to know it better as the article progresses.

7 Reasons Why You Should Be Talking About the DJI M30

DJI M30 series

Nothing gets us more excited than a good drone— and we haven’t been this excited in a long time. Enterprise level drones are extremely powerful but logging them around has always been a point of contention. Not anymore, not with the M30 series. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Starting from the top, here are the reasons why we think you should be talking about the DJI M30 series.

LiDAR or Photogrammetry – Which one is better?  

Lidar or Photogrammetry

Drones make operations Safer, Efficient, Accurate, Quick, and way more Cost-effective compared to traditional practices. Drones are becoming increasingly popular in Surveying and Mapping, and this adoption can only be attributed to the huge array of benefits that come along with it. Drones allow you to conduct operations with a fraction of the workforce while improving efficiency and accuracy; moreover, drone-powered surveys and mapping are 75%-80% quicker than terrestrial measurement while giving you high precision and improved safety. For surveying and mapping professionals, LiDAR and Photogrammetry data-capturing techniques have been a part of the process. Now the only question that is troubling almost everyone – from amateurs to experienced drone professionals is – ‘Which one is better – Lidar or Photogrammetry?’ and naturally, the next question is – ‘DJI Zenmuse L1 or DJI Zenmuse P1? So let’s get into this dilemma.

We present you this article owing to the fact that we live in a DIY Era and there is NO better alternative to powerline inspection than a drone powerline inspection! So, how would a typical drone-based powerline inspection looks like? Let’s find out.

Let’s Talk About DJI Drones for Surveying and Mapping

DJI Drones for Surveying and Mapping

Have you ever sighed at the thought of surveying a large parcel of land? In the past, that is usually where drones come into the picture. Drones are just perfect for surveying and mapping— they fly over large areas in minutes to hours, they take pictures or videos from different angles, they keep you from having to traverse the dangerous terrain.
As surveying drones become more and more common with each passing day, let’s ask the question: how important are drones in your surveying and mapping operation?

DJI Zenmuse L1; LiDAR Survey Made Easy

DJI Zenmuse L1 payload

For a multitude of reasons, DJI’s first Livox LiDAR payload — the Zenmuse L1, is gaining a lot of traction among drone professionals. First of all, the DJI Zenmuse L1 incorporates the powers of both laser and visible light; this payload can simultaneously capture both LiDAR and Photogrammetry data. L1 is well known for capturing ‘accuracy’ by integrating a Livox LiDAR module, a high-accuracy IMU, a survey-grade camera, and additionally, it comes with a 3-axis stabilized gimbal. Well, not just that, there is a lot more to explore on this unparalleled player in the Drone-based solutions!

Applications of Drones in the Energy Sector
