JULY 2021 Technologies in the Spotlight

Technologies in the Spotlight July 2021 | Drones on the Platform

Drone technology has been widely used for inspections of difficult to reach areas such as confined spaces and workplaces at height. Since this type of inspection poses risks to the workforce when done the traditional way (i.e. use of scaffolding), unmanned aerial vehicles or more commonly known as drones have become a popular safer, cost effective and more efficient alternative.

As such, for this month’s Technologies in the Spotlight, we are featuring some of the drones we have on the platform.
