Autonomous Drones for Highway Design & Operations

Transportation agencies are continuously searching for cost efficiency gains in highway construction & operations through innovative data collection mechanisms. Unmanned aerial systems (UAS), also known as autonomous drones, are already being used across the world to address a variety of needs such as road infrastructure design, bridge inspection, traffic management, active risk monitoring, and crash scene reconstruction, among many other possible uses. This IRF webinar will cover industry-specific case studies involving UAS combined with data analytics software. We will deep dive into the technologies (hardware, software) being used, and the beneficial outcomes they have helped unleash. [divider type=”1″] [/divider]
