Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), or drones, are a revolutionary technology that are making it easier than ever to collect information from above the Earth’s surface. For colleges and universities, UAS technology is offering exciting new opportunities for carrying out research, inspecting campus infrastructure, and improving safety on campus. UAS also pose a number of challenges, particularly on issues relating to federal regulations, privacy, and responsible use. In this webinar, Jarlath O’Neil-Dunne, director of the University of Vermont’s (UVM) Spatial Analysis Laboratory and founder of the UVM UAS Team, provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of UAS technology, from the operating platforms, sensors, and back-end analytics to the regulatory environment and campus policies. He also discusses how UAS are used in action from disaster response and public safety efforts to traffic monitoring, infrastructure, and environmental research.
