Drone technologies can be used at almost every stage in the transport infrastructure sector, starting from construction and investment monitoring, through maintenance, up to asset inventory.
According to the PwC study Clarity from above: transport infrastructure, the pace of adoption of drone powered solutions in the road and railway sectors will be driven by three main factors:
- Financial and legal support,
- enhancing data processing & accessibility, and
- rapid technological development.
There are also important challenges that will have to be addressed in the nearest future, including aviation risk and privacy considerations.
