Drones improve the efficiency, safety, and accuracy of electrical construction and planning, reducing costs and improving outcomes.
Construction Planning and Design
Site Survey and Design Key Benefits
Map large areas to acquire detailed, precise data using drones. Project teams can optimize power line designs based on accurate geographic coordinates.
Power Line Construction Planning
Traditional Challenges in Power Line Construction Planning
The lack of precise position data makes it difficult to align BIM designs, road vector maps, and satellite imagery, costing time and labor.
Without a reality model, it is difficult to accurately account for a safety distance between the power lines and buildings in the vicinity during the design phase.
The BIM designs can be quite different from the reality model, making it difficult to visualize and verify the design.
How Drones Improve Power Line Construction Planning
Quickly take off and fly over the worksite to create a 3D model of the area where a route might be planned.
Create 3D models with accurate positioning data that can be readily fitted into the BIM models to visualize designs.
Generate better route designs using 3D models that are compatible with a variety of GIS software.
Traditional Challenges in Site Survey
Grid worksites are often located in complex geographies that are hard to access, costing significant time, manpower, and equipment investment to survey.
Satellite or manned aircraft data is expensive and cannot be accessed on demand, while the data accuracy is subpar.
The DLGs produced are difficult to visualize, unlike 2D maps or 3D models.
How Drones Empower Site Survey
Easily take off and fly over complex worksites to collect highly accurate data.
Rapidly generate 2D orthomosaics and 3D models as references for engineering planning and design.
Superimpose designs with 2D and 3D reconstructions to visualize the effect and make adjustments.
