Embracing Drone Technology: Overcoming 5 Key Barriers

July 1, 2019

Whether your organisation intends to be an early adopter of drone technology or a cautious follower, mapping how drone technology can be incorporated, with an element of ‘future proofing’, can be complex. But it doesn't need to be.

At BIRDI we believe it's important for the industry to have open and transparent discussions on drone implementation. For this reason we have been running our Drone Breakfast Series Roadshow in capital cities across Australia.

So far we have spoken to well over 100 stakeholders who have attended our breakfasts and there have been 5 key issues that consistently come up with attendees as barriers to drone integration.

5 key barriers to drone integration:

  1. Safety
  2. Insurance
  3. Privacy
  4. Regulation & Compliance
  5. Hardware and software choices

Interestingly, there has been a strong focus placed on the changing external factors such as aviation regulation, privacy concerns and data security. Most businesses admit that it has been difficult for them to stay abreast of all these factors without having external experts to support them.The BIRDI platform enables this support and has been providing advice and guidance to various businesses, of all sizes, as to how they can stay on top of these changes.

Major considerations we address in our consultation:

Whatever stage you are at with drone integration, BIRDI provides expert consulting services that assist you in developing your business case, launching a successful pilot drone program or support in building out your existing drone program.
