Measuring rock piles is one critical task to be carried out by concrete and aggregates company. It is difficult to physically measure rock piles of large dimensions as they cannot be climbed upon. They may possibly collapse upon and cascade down, including humans and large machinery. Rock piles are never uniform, and manual counting can lead to inaccurate results by thousands of tons and thousands of dollars. Drones made it possible, and the results were apparent, like immediate money savings and a safer work environment. These industrial drones powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning have significantly impacted construction, mining, and aggregates, as well as insurance claims.

An added advantage of employing drones is that they can withstand extreme climatic conditions and handle longer flight times. These drones will provide full-motion video and geospatial mapping when utilized in the area of active fire, where it can send real-time data to fire incident management teams. When the drones are equipped with infrared cameras and sensors, they can easily peer through smoke through the guidance provided for wind direction and other weather variables. They can even navigate through cramped spaces and canyons where helicopters cannot fly and glide low enough to capture high-resolution footage.
