The TSC will bring together experts from the drone industry and transport industry professionals to explore the uses and implementation of drone technology in the UK transport industry, at a new one-day event in Milton Keynes.

Drones or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) are quickly developing into to a technology with potential for a multitude of commercial and industrial uses. Everything from delivery of goods to new forms of personal transportation are now being considered, with drones also being deployed to inspect major transport assets and support emergency services.

The potential of this emerging industry is huge, but pioneers in the sector are still overcoming regulatory issues, and the technology is still maturing in more advanced areas. Additionally, there is work to do to raise awareness of the capabilities of UAVs and the solutions it can offer for sectors like the Transport Industry.

At this event we ask, what can drones do for your business? What new services can be delivered by UAV technology? and how can the UK help this sector flourish?

The event will be hosted by BBC Science and Technology Correspondent, Richard Westcott.

Confirmed speakers at the event include:

  • Mark Westwood, Chief Technology Officer, Transport Systems Catapult
  • Dr Simon Weeks, Chief Technology Officer, ATI
  • Sameer Savani – Head of Innovation,  ADS Group,
  • Kathy Nothstine, Lead Future Cities, Nesta,
