Drones are increasingly used by large home builders

The NAHB survey also found that while 20% of all home builders are likely to use drones over the next three years, 38% said it would not be possible to use drones at all. However, when drilling into the details, the builder's size comes into play again. Only 13% of builders started at less than 6 units, and they responded that they would use drones in the near future, while 41% of 100 units started or more said they would.
Across the construction industry, including the commercial and industrial sectors, the number of drones used is even more impressive. In fact, a report from the International Association of Self-Driving Vehicle Systems (AUVS I) in April found that the construction and infrastructure industry is one of the largest commercial users of drones.
AUVSI makes an assertion based on the Federal Aviation Administration's exemption data, which shows that the FAA has granted construction and infrastructure companies nearly 1,800 exemptions, accounting for nearly 60% of all industrial applications, and about 40 of the total 4,600 exemptions approved by the FAA. %. Allows companies to apply for FAA drone exemptions so that they do not have to meet the same airworthiness requirements as manned aircraft. The FAA expects to develop rules for drones this year.
In contrast to home builder drone usage figures, For's analysis of AUVSI data found that almost all FAA exemptions issued to construction and infrastructure companies went to those with less than $ 1 million in revenue and less than 10 employees. Small business.
Drones have become a game-changing technology in the construction industry because they can monitor construction sites, take pictures, collect information, and then send it back to the project manager or design team.
