Maintaining roads and highways in a reasonable state of repair is critical to ensuring public safety. A significant percentage of motor vehicle accidents are caused by defects in road and highways. In addition to being time consuming, road and/or highway inspections can be costly as they often involved experts. Inspections can also lead to inconvenient road closures, a factor that can lead to reduce how frequently road and/or highway inspections are conducted. Some roadways and highways may be located in remote and inconvenient locations, or may present certain risks and hazards to the individuals conducting the inspection. Industrial drones for sale at Skynex Industrial Drones offer an excellent solution to road and/or highway inspections, and circumvent the issues and hurdles encountered in traditional road and highway inspection methods.
BENEFITS OF DRONES AS A SOLUTION FOR ROADS AND HIGHWAY INSPECTIONS
Drones/UAVs available for purchase at Skynex Industrial Drones offer many different solutions for infrastructure inspections, including road and highway inspections. Advantages of conducting road and highway inspections with drones/UAVs in comparison to traditional methods of inspection are manyfold. Drone/UAV inspections offer a highly reliable solution at a lower cost in comparison to traditional inspection methods. UAV/drone inspections of roads and highway also avoid the inconvenient necessity of closing roads and highways during inspections. All UAV/drone road and highway inspections are conducted remotely, and safely. Staff members do not need to be at the location of the road or highway inspection. UAV/drones can be purchased with a range of different payload and imaging solutions, such as 4K ultra-high definition camera or thermal imaging, that can be tailored to the road or highway inspection at hand. Drones/UAVs are also capable of collecting and relaying highly accurate, detailed, and reliable data on any road or highway.
Safe: conduct road and/or highway drone inspections remotely, and safely.
Cost-Effective: conduct highly effective road and highway drone inspections, at a low cost
Safe: conduct rail inspections remotely, and safely.
INVESTING IN YOUR OWN FLEET OF ROAD/HIGHWAY INSPECTION DRONES
Investing in your own UAV/drone solution for conducting road and/or highway inspections, as opposed to outsourcing the inspections to a third party drone operator service, offers many different benefits. Investing in your own UAV/drone solution for road and highway inspections means the ability to conduct road or highway inspections as frequently as is necessary. Conducting regular road and highway inspections ensures a higher degree of fidelity and accuracy in data, and reduces the risk of roads and/or highways falling in an unreasonable state of disrepair. Investing in your own industrial UAV/Drone also offers significant cost-savings in comparison to traditional road/highway inspection methods. Industrial drones have intelligent flight modes that facilitate drone control and operation, allowing the user to focus on the road or highway inspection at hand.
ROI: save hundreds of thousands of dollars in roadway/highway inspections.
Flexibility: conduct road/highway inspections as often as is necessary.
Versatile: deploy your industrial UAV/drone for a wide range of different purposes.
Customized: conduct every road/highway inspection according to your own standards.
KEY DRONE FEATURES FOR ROADS & HIGHWAY INSPECTIONS
Flight/Battery Time: Buyers looking for an industrial drone to conduct road or highway drone inspections will want to ensure their choice of drone/UAV offers extended flight/battery times, sufficient to conduct as much distance of the road or highway in a thorough manner. Purchasing additional drone batteries, or purchasing a drone/UAV that features ground tethering are good alternatives for road and/or highway drone inspections.
Drone Camera & Gimbal: customizable imaging solutions, such as ultra-high definition (UHD) or thermal images, are key to any infrastructure inspection. Being able to detect faults and damages in roads and highway is highly dependent on the quality of detail offered by a drone’s imaging solution. Purchasing a UAV/drone with easily interchangeable payload options, such as UHD images, thermal images, or Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), will offer better end results, within a shorter time frame, at a lower cost.
Control Range: purchasing an industrial drone/UAV for the purpose of conducting road and/or highway inspections requires the ability for a drone to fly longer distance, far away from ground control. Ensuring an industrial drone offers sufficient control range is critical feature. Buyers may also want to ensure their choice of drone features fail-safe flight modes, whereby the drone will always stay within a flight zone where the transmission signal is sufficiently strong.
intelligent, autonomous drone flight modes, such as waypoint flight planning, altitude hold, etc., are highly useful features to have for the purpose of conducting infrastructure inspections, such as road and highways. These and other features allow the user to focus on the visual inspection of the road or highway, rather than having to focus on drone command and control.
