Over the last few years the P&C insurance industry has demonstrated significant interest in using drones (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems or RPASs) for both underwriting and claims adjusting. Key barriers to using drones are the aviation regulatory structure and the required level of training and familiarity with the equipment — areas DroneVue Imaging has covered.

The insurance industry identifies potential applications of drones in the following areas:

  • Aerial data collection
  • Underwriting
  • Claims adjusting
  • Roof inspections
  • Risk assessment
  • Risk control
  • Building damage inspection
