The first-ever symposium on the uses of aerial robotics systems and autonomous vehicles for emergency first responders is being hosted by the University of Nevada, Reno.
The potential for uses of unmanned autonomous systems in search and rescue operations is enormous,” said Warren Rapp, business director of the University’s robotics and intelligent machines center – the Nevada Advanced Autonomous Systems Innovation Center. “This symposium will explore opportunities, present case studies and include panel discussions to foster dialogue on how first responders use, or would like to use, autonomous systems.”
A line-up of experts will present the latest information on new technologies; federal, state and local laws; air traffic management for drones; advanced drone search techniques; sensor technology for aerial systems; reconnaissance systems and more.
Adapting existing UAS technologies to work in public safety offices requires understanding the specific needs and constraints of how drones and other autonomous systems could be used in emergency or public safety scenarios.
The Nevada Advanced Autonomous Systems Innovation Center, NAASIC, is the University of Nevada, Reno’s robotic systems and intelligent machine research and industry collaboration that includes land-based, aerial and stationary robotics and advanced manufacturing systems. Click to read more.
