ConnexiCore Is Supporting Construction Project Safety by Utilizing Drones for Social Distancing

Large commercial construction projects across the country are using drones for real-time site monitoring to maintain safe social distancing.

Inspection-related construction tasks such as site surveys, grading, earthwork, breaking ground, safety compliance, asset inventory tracking, progress monitoring, security, identifying hazards, and stockpile volumetrics can all be done or aided with the use of drones while maintaining a safe social distance for everyone involved.

Various stakeholders typically visit job sites on a regular basis to conduct inspections and evaluations. Though travel restrictions and social distancing are currently preventing in-person visits, drones are providing high-resolution images and 4K video of job sites, all while maintaining safe human distances. Drones are also providing actionable data, such as 3D point cloud models, plant health, and asset inventory tracking.

To minimize risk, drones are delivering all this content and data safely via SaaS-based platforms, such as ConnexiCore Cloud, that allow teams working remotely to collaborate across thousands of assets. For situations that require it, drones are also facilitating real-time monitoring via streaming video so stakeholders can direct the drone pilot during the flight mission.

Frank Segarra, CEO of ConnexiCore, a nationwide drone services provider, shares how drone companies can make a difference during this challenging time. "We are actively exploring when, where and how we can be most helpful during the COVID-19 crisis. We want to help our clients keep their employees safe, while also trying to maintain effectiveness. This supports productivity for companies and preserves jobs for the employees."
