If conducted alongside a sensible FAA regulatory framework the US UAV industry will be a positive and exciting market... now just a case of waiting on that framework! http://www.nextgov.com/defense/2013/09/commentary-how-drones-can-help/70728/?goback=.gde_115534_member_276589613#%21
Originally shared by Gary Mortimer There are some exciting advancements happening in the world of quadrobotics and autonomous systems. Each person who contributes to this project brings with them a unique set of existing experience, expertise and research on this subject. This first collaboration is a level set—a chance to share that knowledge with the community—so we are collectively starting from the same place. Find and share the most innovative uses of quadrotors and autonomous systems for indoor mapping (include links, videos and imagery in your posts.) In addition to existing technology, share new ideas or theories you have as it relates to autonomous quadrotor systems and indoor mapping strategies. These new ideas/theories will be the foundation for new collaborations moving forward, so think big. Let’s get started. http://www.suasnews.com/2013/09/24930/usaf-multirotor-innovation-challenge/
We are exhibiting alongside +Bilfinger at their UK Energy Showcase at the Skills centre. There are free buses running from Offshore Europe, and we have our UAVs on hand to demonstrate and discuss the safe and efficient inspection services we offer...
Thanks to +Stephan Ridgway we now have the entire podcasts for the 2013 mTech event available at http://talkingvte.blogspot.com.au/search/label/2013mtech http://talkingvte.blogspot.com.au/search/label/2013mtech
