Thurs 29 Sept: Using Drones in Agriculture, Forestry and Utilities
Precision farming and forestry, utilities, environmental and maritime monitoring are all areas cited as some of the most significant applications in the use of drones. Relying not only on their physical flexibility, but also the analysis and use of data, we might have expected their use in these sectors to be widespread. But is it? This session explores both the benefits and barriers of the deployment of drones in these areas. Seminar & networking event taking place from 14.30 – 17.30.
