The developments in the field of pilotless transport and equipment act as one of the modern and most perspective directions of the development of modern science and technology. The vehicles, equipped with the system of automatic control, are able to move in the space on the basis of the set algorithm of actions and the instant analysis of the surrounding situation. Thus, they have great prospects of the use in various spheres and will allow to lower the expenses of human labour, accident rate and fuel consumption. The identification of prospects and directions of the use of the pilotless and automated vehicles in construction projects is carried out in this article on the example of road construction. Studying of the existing developments of the pilotless equipment has already allowed to simulate the process of carrying out some earthwork with the use of (Unmanned aerial vehicles) UAVs. As the introduction of the pilotless vehicles and equipment demands some investment expenses, the economic efficiency of the project is calculated. The result of the calculation of the economy, gained with the use of the pilotless equipment has proved the efficiency of such investments.
