Drones, More Helpful Than Ever in Hurricane-Ravaged Texas and Florida
The view from the ground after a devastating hurricane is heartbreaking. The view from the sky is more revealing.
Unmanned aircraft — small and large — swooped in during the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey to get a glimpse of the devastation. That’s why insurance companies have been using drone technology more than ever before to quickly — and safely — assess damage from the storm.
Most of the drones in the sky are light-weight, quad-copter drones outfitted with cameras that can send images back to insurance professionals — some in real time. For major U.S. insurers, the technology is a game-changer. Allstate said it launched permanent drone damage inspection programs last spring in four states: Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado.
Drone’s aren’t just for insurers, either. Communications companies like Verizon and power companies like Florida Light and Power have used drones to inspect equipment. It’s a sign pointing to America’s exploding drone industry, powered by skyrocketing numbers of commercial drone pilots.
Drobots Company was originally founded by a small group of parents, educators, visionaries and do-it-yourself engineers. The mission was and still is to inspire students to reduce time in front of a computer screen and instead utilize drone technology in a setting that promotes collaborative project-based learning in a positive educational environment. Hence, the company trademark slogan, Where Technology Meets Fresh Air™.
