In an innovative measure, the Abu Dhabi municipality has decided to utilize the vantage view provided by drones to monitor construction sites. As part of a trail run, the municipality is using the drones to ensure that safety standards at construction sites are sustained.
The drones are equipped with a high resolution camera that transmits footage from the sites directly to the engineers who are entrusted with monitoring the progress of work. If the trial phase of the project is successful, the municipality intends to broaden the scope of its usage to other projects as well.
The measure was undertaken as the municipality seeks to ensure that construction sites comply with safety standards and that quality is never compromised. Moreover, the drones will enable the engineers and staff to constantly monitor the work flow in real time.
