Workshop looks at how drones are revolutionising science and business

Drones-thumbAcademics and entrepreneurs come together to discuss innovative new uses of technology

As airborne drones become cheaper and more accessible they are revolutionising the way academic researchers go about their work, providing new ways to collect data and access areas that previously were difficult to map.

Environmental researchers at the University of Wollongong (UOW) will discuss some of the ways they are using drone systems at a two-day workshop, “Drones at UOW: Elevating Environmental Research”, on Wednesday 31 May and Thursday 1 June. A number of industry representatives and start-up businesses will also share insights on how they are using the technology.

The workshop is hosted by iAccelerate (iA) and sponsored by UOW’s Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health, Centre for Sustainable Ecosystem Solutions (CSES) and Advantage SME.  Read more...
