The session is designed to offer something for everyone interested in learning more about how unmanned aerial systems can improve information and communication, reduce costs and save time during a construction project.
Henderson said, “Attendees will benefit by getting a basic overview of UAS components, including payload options. The session will also help attendees to better understand potential applications, with associated workflows and deliverables, so they can determine how the technology can be applied to their projects.”
Use-case material will be presented to illustrate how customers are using unmanned systems in today’s construction environment.
A summary of current legal compliance issues will also be discussed, along with insights and questions on purchasing a system, versus hiring a service provider, for a particular project.
