Roofing professionals, contractors, insurance adjusters, and solar installers use drone maps and 3D models to quickly and accurately inspect, measure, and style roofs and solar panels all from the security of the bottom. Technologies like aerial mapping, thermal imaging, and automatic roof measurement give you information to streamline your workflows and produce real-time insights. Drone maps far surpass imagery gathered by manned aircraft. Recent improvements in AI and machine learning help reduce errors and deliver automated roof measurements with up to 99% accuracy. and every one of these is often wrapped to 3x faster than traditional methods, saving time and resources within the field.

With results like this, it’s no surprise that roofers, inspectors, adjusters, and surveyors are all turning to drones and Airpix. So what are you waiting for? Read on to find out how drones can transform your inspection workflows.

The Benefits of Using Drones for Roof Inspection

Accurate and Consistent Measurements

Airpix's roofing solution uses computer vision and machine learning algorithms to generate automated measurements that are 99% accurate. This eliminates the potential for measurement error and makes it possible to live square footage, roof features, pitch, area, and slope consistently across every site.

High-Resolution Maps and 3D Models in Minutes

Unlike traditional methods, drones take minutes to gather roof data. And with our life Map feature, you'll instantly see your map appear in real-time because the drone flies. Once you revisit the office, process and export your data for further analysis.

Visual and Thermal Inspection from the security of the bottom

Your team not has got to scale a ladder or walk out on a ledge to finish a visible inspection. With drones, you'll safely inspect dangerous or inaccessible areas. Pinpoint issues such as leaks, and damage with orthomosaic and thermal maps, and eliminate the necessity to climb a roof unless it requires repair.


Solar irradiance may be a measure of solar energy. Irradiance levels vary considerably at different times of the year, depending upon the seasons, the weather and therefore the time of the day. The client needed direct, diffuse and reflected solar irradiance.

What we've done in this Project?

Atmospheric radiation is broken into three fundamental components. Direct normal irradiance is that the radiation available directly from the sun and normal to the sun’s position. This component is vital for the event of concentrated solar energy systems and is most directly influenced by cloudiness and atmospheric aerosols. Diffuse horizontal irradiance is that the radiation scattered by the atmosphere as collected on a level.

The sum of the direct and diffuse components, or the entire radiation available, is that the global horizontal irradiance. the specified solar parameters (e.g. sunrise, sunset times, declination, extraterrestrial irradiance, daylight length are calculated using the software. While calculating radiation, shadow analysis is additionally taken into consideration for accurate results.
