Technology Trends

Drone Technology has been evolving quickly with new regulations that will enable inspection and delivery applications

As part of the Smart City topics for this year’s ARC Industry Forum in Orlando, we will bring some of the evolving applications for drone inspection and delivery and a discussion of the regulatory framework that will enable significant growth in commercial and industrial drone missions.

Drones have found many useful jobs in the commercial, agricultural, surveying, and industrial space.  This session will focus on drone applications, drone-related technologies, drone regulations, and the challenges to ensure safe and efficient drone missions that provide value.

The forum session will give you a summary of the significant industrial and commercial markets for drones, outline how the drone industry is working with the latest FAA regulations, and show some real-world examples of how drones can provide value.
