Permeable Pavement

"Drones":
Revolutionizing Site Inspections

Presenter: Michael A. Perez, EI
Graduate Research Assistant
Dept. of Civil Engineering
Auburn University
Thursday, May 28th @ 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT,
1-1.5hr*
Credits: 1 PDH / 0.1 CEU

"Drones" or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are quickly emerging as the next wave of technology for site inspections, offering environmental, infrastructure, waste, and construction professionals the ability to acquire high resolution aerial imagery, spatial data, and sensing data thoroughly AND cost-effectively… essentially giving you a bird's eye view into your site's layout and behavior. Whether you're managing watersheds, landfills, or construction sites, UAVs are on the horizon. So, what UAV technology and applications are available today? And what regulations and challenges aren't far behind?

Join Michael Perez to explore the growing use of unmanned aerial vehicles
(UAVs / Drones) in site inspections; the current regulations and opportunities for commercial applications; the implementation best practices (e.g., flight path planning and programming, photogrammetric site visualization, elevation modeling, progress documentation and assessment, etc.); and how you can implement UAVs at your sites as a thorough, cost-effective site inspection tool.
