Drones - when will they start invading the sky?

Wednesday, March 21, 2018 - 19:30 to 22:00

------- COME AND WIN A DRONE! -------

Drones are about to be part of our everyday lives. They promise to deliver our packages faster and cheaper, using aerial corridors instead of congested roadways. They will save lives by supporting incident responders with necessary equipment. They promise to inspect our roofs and the electricity grid more frequently, better, and autonomously. They will bring us unprecedented views of reality, and even allow us to become producers of our own spectacular video shows. The aerial future is bright, and a wide range of applications is emerging. There are plenty of opportunities for novel businesses, and also existing companies are interested in the opportunities. In this IEEE SB event, we will give an overview of the drone challenges and opportunities, first from a research angle, then from the viewpoint of a media broadcaster with concrete experience with drones, and finally from the European drone cluster EUKA, aiming to simply enable drone industry.

The seminar is co-organized by FITCE and the IEEE Student Branch Leuven.
