In collaboration with FHWA–and as part of the Every Day Counts 5 (EDC-5) initiative–the CP Tech Center produced a series of tech briefs and webinars to highlight proven use cases that leverage unmanned aerial systems (UAS), more commonly referred to as drones, for the construction, management, and operation of infrastructure.

Of the extensive list of applications that benefit from the implementation of UAS, four were chosen to highlight the most common and advanced applications. These include construction inspection, bridge inspection, emergency management of flooding events, and land surveying. 

The CP Tech Center developed a tech brief for each of these topics. A corresponding recorded webinar was given by their authors. Click here for more information, including links to access the tech briefs and webinars. (Source: CP Tech Center’s “Resources” newsletter, January 2020.)
