Learn how drone technology can reduce risks for workers and improve business productivity at this World of Drones Congress workshop.
Case studies will be presented by businesses using drones to eliminate or mitigate work health and safety hazards and risks.
• Queensland Drones who use drones for industrial surveys and mine site infrastructure assessments.
• Hover UAV who use drones for shark research, conservation and public safety surveillance. They record all fauna sighted to help researchers build a picture of what species are prevalent at certain times of the year.
• XM2 Industrial who monitor crop health in harsh conditions over large geographical areas, removing the need for manual surveying. They also use drones to inspect wind turbines, eliminating work at height risks.
• Sitesee who use drones for cell tower inspection to reduce climbs by staff, thereby improving safety while minimising cost and maximising tower usage.
• V-TOL Aerospace Pty Limited who are developing the capacity to process Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (S-UAS less than 25kg) payload data in real-time, meaning a drone can execute automated safe navigation and collision avoidance commands during flight.
• Queensland Ship Surveyors Pty Ltd (QSS) use a collision tolerant drone to inspect inaccessible, complex, cluttered, confined spaces as well as above ground structures.
