Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Forum

The use of small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (sUAV) is rapidly growing in the Transportation Industry. Some of the applications where UAVs are being effectively used include:

  • Mapping
  • Infrastructure Inspection
  • Construction Monitoring
  • Stockpile and Earthwork Volume Measurements
  • Rockfall Site Investigation
  • Vegetative Health Assessment

Some state DOTs have begun developing their own UAV programs while others are currently researching the technology. DOTs and other infrastructure owners could greatly benefit from the sharing of knowledge and experiences with one another. A wide range of topics relating to UAV use in the Transportation Industry will be discussed including FAA regulations, technical Q&A, equipment, flight planning, data processing, etc. To this end, MDT has set up a listserv to facilitate these communications. These conversations and other resources will be posted to this website.
