What are the key obstacles to widespread adoption of 3D positioning and guidance in the construction industry?

Ismael Colomina, GeoNumerics

“Construction site monitoring with UAVs requires regulated standard scenarios that allow flying over people and in urban areas without spending weeks obtaining the needed permissions. It also requires the development of critical UAV components, especially the guidance, navigation and control (GNC) systems. Safe UAV navigation — guaranteeing positional accuracy with small probabilities of actual errors larger than the specified ones — is still under development and will involve a multi-sensor navigation system. Current GNSS augmentation systems, such as WAAS and EGNOS, may not be appropriate for flights in the very-low-level (VLL) airspace.”
