Broadspectrum, the Australian subsidiary of Ferrovial Services, has recently started using drones to provide services in all of its activities in Australia. All such new services are compliant with the Australian Government’s regulations. Driven by the Centre of Excellence for Natural Resources and managed by our in-house engineering consulting business, ICD, the service allows access to data acquisition and analysis in the following fields:
- HD photos and videos: Enables close-up, high quality inspection of our assets to detect potential defects or problems.
- LiDAR: Laser scanning to measure structures, objects, or create land contours, providing three-dimensional modelling of assets.
- Infrared thermography: Provides thermal imaging to highlight areas requiring special attention.
