A company called Identified Technologies wants to make mapping a job site an easier task by using drones.
The company’s founder, Dick Zhang, says his product allows project managers, contractors, architects, and anyone else on the Building Team to send a quadcopter around the site and create a topographical map, DIY Drones reports.
The drone is completely autonomous, and batteries can be “hot-swapped” as it maps the area.
A number of contracts have already been made by several projects in Pennsylvania with Identified Technologies. “We have a heavy focus in the Marcellus Shale region, which delivers over 40% of this country’s natural gas. We’ve experienced consistent growth every month. We are forecasting 10-times growth in our deployments and revenue over the course of the year,” Zhang told DIY Drones.
