CONECTech Lab Partners with 3D Robotics on unmanned aerial vehicle research

Primary tabs

Unmanned aerial systems company 3D Robotics (3DR) is partnering with the School of Building Construction’s CONECTech Lab on research to explore the impact of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology in the architecture, engineering, construction, and facility management domain. This is a timely collaboration given the increased availability of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) technology for the consumer market.

Many industries are interested in using the technology, but there is no empirical evidence of the impact of the technology in commercial applications. CONECTech Lab will perform experiments with 3DR’s IRIS+ UAS Platform at several construction sites in the Atlanta area to collect data on their performance during jobsite related tasks. Lessons learned will help determine the best use cases for UAS/UAV technology in the AEC+FM industry as well as contribute to the development of industry specific UAS products.

Dr. Irizarry’s research collaboration with the Associated General Contractors, Georgia Chapter receives national attention in recent article.
