Advances in digital imaging, combined with a low-cost UAV platform, have created a safe, cost effective, and time-efficient method of inspecting hard-to-access areas. The portability of UAVs allows for rapid deployment, with the possibility of real-time streaming of the data. Compared to the time and cost involved with installing scaffolding or other traditional methods, using a UAV is a very economical solution for inspections.
