As part of our ongoing efforts to showcase the individuals and organizations that are using drones to make a real difference, we recently explored how Pacific Triangle captured the data to provide a vital layer of data using acoustic sensors on drones for bridge inspections in Georgia. Pacific Triangle is a drone service provider that delivers a range of services for commercial applications and the project provided incredible insight into the new data collection workflows that the project opened up.

Ian Foley, CEO of Pacific Triangle, mentioned during that interview that he isn’t seeing many barriers in terms of how organizations are looking to leverage drone technology, so we wanted to catch up with him to further explore that topic. In the video below, we talk about the UAVs that were used to collect sensor data on the Atlanta bridge inspection project, what sort of value he’s hoping to unlock with annual change detection and predictive analytics services, what advice he has for anyone looking to take the next step with drone adoption and much more.
