Drone Technology Increases Productivity and Accuracy for Hedrick Industries
Posted on January 20th, 2016
Hedrick Industries recently adopted the drone method for taking stock pile inventory. In the past, inventory was done manually: an employee walks the pile with a GPS device and takes a hundred or so points to measure the volume of the pile. This process was time-consuming, cumbersome, and less precise than the drone measurements. As the drone flies over the pile, surveying the area, it takes thousands of points, meaning volume measurements are more accurate.
In addition to realizing the immediate benefits of improved stockpile measurement and safety, the drone also has the ability to take some awesome pictures! See below!
