In this chapter authors conduct a case study analysis in order to evaluate the potential
benefits of using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UVAs) for the data collection involved in the
failures diagnosis of facades. A quantitative approach is performed by testing for statistically
significative differences between the proposed methodology and traditional visual inspections.
Results allow to state that a highly significative global improvement for the data collection exists.
