Many studies have been carried out on monitoring the target by cooperating a drone with remote sensors recently. This monitoring system uses static sensors to measure environmental data and drones to collect measured data. In geotechnical engineering, inspectors go around measuring the safety of construction site and it is impractical to compose a network among numerous sensors in terms of the cost efficiency. In this paper, we propose a data collection system based on interaction between a drone and a few sensors that are installed around the target structure for geotechnical projects. Through experimental results, we also verify the availability and the time and cost efficiency of the proposed system comparing with using inspectors.
