Mining and aggregate supplier companies have been able to see the practical differences that drone technology can make since adoption means that someone now doesn’t have to literally climb a stockpile to get a measurement of it. Keeping operators out of potentially dangerous situations means critical information can be gathered much faster, but these benefits go beyond the impact on safety considerations. This session will explore what kind of a difference it can make for a drone to allow users to easily take measurements monthly, weekly or even daily while also producing a scaled dataset that can be trusted when making calculations.
