Commercial drones are being used across various industries to help companies save money, improve safety, and enhance the efficiency of their operations. Read this guide to learn more about commercial drones, and to see our list of the top seven commercial drones on the market.

In inspection scenarios, using a drone to collect data instead of a person can make a big impact on safety since it reduces the exposure of personnel to potentially dangerous scenarios, such as climbing a cell tower or walking along scaffolding inside a giant tank to collect visual data.

People also use drones to collect data for things like surveying, mapping, or even to help investigators find human remains—we’ll cover all the different industries that are using drones a little farther on in this section.


 How Drones can be used for Inspection ?

  • Visual data. This is by far the most common type of data a drone is used to collect. By flying over an area or object of interest, a drone can be used to help see things that might not be otherwise visible, and collect a record of what is seen.

  • Thermal data. After visual data, thermal data is one of the most common types of data industries collected by drone. Aerial thermal data can help firefighters determine where to focus their efforts during an active fire, or help inspectors identify potential problem areas in a solar array.

  • LiDAR data. A LiDAR sensor illuminates a target with a laser light and then measures the reflection to create data points that can be used to map the area. Aerial LiDAR can be used to help companies in various industries to create 3D maps of an area, which can be used for project planning or progress tracking. Since LiDAR can penetrate tree cover and even earth to reveal structures hidden underground, it has also been used by archaeologists to help them discover new sites of interest for excavation.

  • Multispectral data. Multispectral data is collected by sensors that measure reflected energy within several specific sections (or bands) of the electromagnetic spectrum. Aerial multispectral data can be used in agriculture and conservation to monitor plant and tree health, and it’s also being used by law enforcement to help find human remains.

  • Hyperspectral data. Hyperspectral sensors measure energy in narrower and more numerous bands than multispectral sensors. Aerial hyperspectral data can be used in agriculture for monitoring the health of crops, and in security and defense for detecting the presence of those who shouldn’t be in a given area.
