Listen to this Digging Deeper podcast to learn more about how drone systems will bring a new level of autonomy to the construction industry.

Currently, drones typically require a human operator to perform activities such as surveying and mapping. But Robert Cheek of UVify says more intelligence being built into the drone systems will bring a new level of autonomy, particularly useful to the construction industry.

In this episode of the Digging Deeper podcast, Cheek dives into how drones are advancing, how that will benefit and be useful to the construction industry and what roles drones might carry out in construction in the near future.

Cheek predicts that in the not-too-distant future aerial robots may take the place of cranes on the construction jobsite. They are also being used for autonomous inspections and even painting at heights.

Listen in to hear Cheek's predictions for the current and future of drones in the construction industry.
