Thank you to everyone who joined the webinar Robots, Risk Mitigation, and ROI: Optimizing Mining Operations with Drones! We greatly enjoyed co-hosting with Komatsu Australia and sharing what drone workflows can look like, the ROI you can experience when implementing a drone solution on your mine, and real-life customer success stories.

Key Takeaways and Highlights
The Everyday Drone solution allows customers to:
Monitor progress tracking
Perform volume calculations
Resolve disputes easily
Increase surveying efficiency and ROI
“We did a drone flight on a big project that we had to move about 40,000 cubic yards of dirt. We compared that data that we collected and realized that there was about 6,000 cubic yards of earth that was in addition, and used that information for a change order on the project.” - Komatsu Customer
In one example use case, Komatsu Australia needed to survey six quarries, with point cloud deliverables that were going to be used by the client:
Accurate volume reporting
Complex volume reports
Planning and monitoring assistance
Surveying six quarries would have normally taken more than a month for a single surveyor, and might have resulted in a less detailed deliverable. Using the Skycatch-powered Everyday Drone solution, Komatsu Australia was able to survey all six quarries in only five days, with the point clouds for each quarry processed and delivered in less than 24 hours - a huge boost in survey productivity.
