Drone-Based Image Processing for Construction Site Safety, Transportation, and Progress Management
Paper in proceeding, 2021

Construction plays a pivotal role in securing prosperity in many countries through the deployment of new infrastructure, as the need to deliver higher-quality products more efficiently and safely is stronger than ever. Current construction management primarily relies on human assessment due to lack of automated project data collection, communication or distribution of important information, and is often reactive to accidents, inefficiencies, and progress delays. This study will tackle these problems by developing a methodological framework on automated tracking, inspection, and monitoring to increase accessibility, efficiency and safety to improve infrastructure project delivery, which integrates cost-effective unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, or drones) data collection, real-time analysis and segmentation of UAV visual data, and proactive dynamic planning.
