While some people have long-enjoyed flying drones as a hobby, drone technology today offers benefits that extend far beyond those enjoyed by backyard enthusiasts. In fact, the commercial drone applications are limited only by one’s imagination. Check out this list of the many ways that commercial industries can – and will – benefit from using drones as part of their daily operations:
Drones can be used very effectively to assist with crop management, analyzing soil, measuring water levels, and detecting fire and floods to storm-ravaged regions. In addition, drones can even help a farmer manage inventory and monitor cattle herding and potential pest infestations.
Architecture, Construction, Land Surveying, and Real Estate Prospecting
There is incredible potential for drone use when surveying land, prospecting for real estate, and even monitoring large construction projects. Instead of tasking people with the time-consuming duty of measuring, checking, and driving through acres and miles of land for sale, development, etc., a drone can take on this operation much more quickly and easily.
Data and photographs can be combined and enhanced to provide investors, real estate agents, architects, and developers ready access to large properties and projects from the comfort of an office. This allows commercial enterprises to receive the information they need immediately and subsequently make well-informed decisions.
From the many lessons we have learned from COVID-19, one major takeaway is that we have become keenly aware of the importance of contactless, efficient delivery services. With drones, companies can send and receive packages of all shapes and sizes more quickly than ever before. Without having to rely on trucks or planes, deliveries can arrive on one’s doorstep with the assistance of a drone. This can be lifesaving as well, considering that medical shipments can be delivered in a matter of hours, thanks to drones, instead of days and weeks.
Photography: For Media, Weddings, and Special Events
The high-resolution photographs that only a drone can capture – even in difficult-to-access locations – make drones an invaluable asset. Imagine wedding and special event planners using drones to capture the magic of the day from multiple angles and vantage points. Or what about having the ability to use a drone to capture real time news stories, concerts, and sporting events – making the viewer feel as if he or she is in the middle of the action?
With drones, people can be virtually “taken” closer to situations, stories, and events more easily than ever before. This increases availability and access to view events and happenings around the globe, without the need to physically attend. Companies that can offer virtual tickets to events can enjoy a hybrid model of profit – income from in-person attendance, as well as monies made from viewers at home.
Inspections: Utilities, Siding, Roofs, Chimneys, and More
For countless businesses, inspections are part of their daily operations. Contractors and developers may need to inspect a property to receive permits and municipal approvals to build. Insurance companies request inspections of siding, roofs, and chimneys before processing a claim. The same is true in the case of a storm: after a devastating hurricane, flood, or tornado destroys homes and businesses, inspections are a key component to the claims process.
Likewise, utility companies conduct both routine and emergency inspections. When internet service is interrupted due to a downed line, the provider must pinpoint where the service broke down, inspect, and assess the damage in order to restore service quickly – and drones can help with this. Or, in the event of gas and oil leaks, a drone can inspect the lines easily to find the leak – and potentially save lives in the process.
Security and Surveillance
Any business that is tasked with ensuring the safety and security of a building or individuals, drones can gather information that cover a large area, while also zooming in on very specific areas and locations. This kind of service can be invaluable in protecting a political dignitary or celebrity who is making a graduation commencement speech at an outdoor venue. Or, on a larger stage, organizations in the business of offering security to a power plant or building that houses sensitive, confidential information can enlist the use of commercial drone applications to deliver that security, surveillance, and peace of mind.
Emergency Services / Search and Rescue
There are many instances in which it is critical to find a person in a location that is difficult to access by foot or vehicle. And in the case of a missing person, time is of the essence. Drones are capable of flying into remote areas that may be dangerous or inaccessible for a human being. Even in the event of getting to an accessible location, a drone may be able to get the job done more quickly than a person could.
