Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Civil Engineering: Current Practises and Regulations

Sadık Alper Yıldızel [1] , Gökhan Calış [2]


Lately, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has been widely preferred in construction industry, and their applications are changing the way construction companies work. UAVs has may benefits for the civil engineering discipline and many various applications from inspection of any on-site activity to personal safety operations. Drones are gaining popularity globally among the stakeholders including clients, contractors and consultant engineers for assessing complex and detailed situations. However, state and local regulations are limiting their usages and efficiencies.  Construction companies must be aware of the regulations and risks in order to apply UAV technology to their projects. This paper aims to study the current practices of UAVs in construction industry and compare the different regulations set on the use of drones in different countries and regions such as USA, EU and Turkey. This research also comprises some legal recommendations to the Turkish authorities.
