This video captured at AASHTO’s 2019 Spring Meeting in Park City, Utah, provides coverage of a major topic of discussion at this year meeting: drones. Watch a demonstration of some of the latest drone technology and hear from Carlos Braceras, executive director of the Utah DOT and AASHTO’s 2018-2019 president about the release of AASHTO’s new UAS/Drone survey.
The survey found that practically all state DOTs are using drones for a host of missions including disaster and emergency response, infrastructure inspections, and avalanche control. Transportation TV also interviewed experts about where drone technology is headed and why state DOTs will need to play a pivotal role in the creation of what are being called: Highways in the Sky.
