Future uses:

Live feeds – these can be beamed directly to a control room for inspection requirements (e.g. crane clearance, logistics, personnel movement) allowing for real-time decision making.

Volumetric measurements of items on site e.g. excavated materials, supporting logistical planning for removal.

Waypoint flying allowing the UAV to fly the same path to create time lapse opportunities and comparative analysis.
