ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (U.A.V.) technologies are getting into commercial applications. Combining surveillance video technologies with U.A.V. enable data collection in inaccessible geographic locations or in areas where conventional technologies have limited use. Present workshop will bring together researchers, companies and end-users particularly to explore the potential civilian applications of U.A.V. for rapid mapping, data collection during humanitarian crises and emergencies. Successful operation of U.A.V.s requires a range of expertise, from initial planning to piloting skills and autonomous programming skills. This workshop will provide a glimpse of basic and state of the art hardware / software of U.A.V.-based applications.
