WEFTEC Takes Flight in the Drone Pavilion!

CDMSmith_sponsored.pngFor the first time at WEFTEC, come to our Drone Pavilion to see drones in flight—and learn how they can help you with your inspection and data collection needs.

Daily education sessions will cover topics like inspections, mapping, data collection, machine learning and more. Find out how aerial surveys boost precision, avoid safety hazards, and provide incredible amounts of data to drive decisions.

If you have projects that are facing the following challenges, then drones may be a perfect fit:

  • Incomplete site knowledge
  • Time-consuming and expensive data collection
  • Overwhelming data volume
  • Concerns over field worker safety
  • A need for data that traditional methods cannot address
