The week of Nov 4-10, 2019 is National Drone Safety Awareness week. We push the envelope in our UAS research in order to make advancements for the public good. BUT, it has to be done safely, something we take very seriously. Monday, Nov 4, 2019 at 12:00 in the Schorr Center conference room NIMBUS will hold an event “Ensuring Public Safety When Pushing the UAS Flight Envelope” going over safety documentation from the FAA, showing videos on what NOT to do, and reviewing and updating our own safety materials and processes. Please come by and visit the lab to learn more about drone safety and get tips on how to be safe while conducting drone research.
We’re VERY proud of our safety record in NIMBUS over the past decade of research. We do push boundaries, try new things, and encounter numerous failures. But with the help of the FAA, UNL, and a strong internal safety culture we’ve had very few incidents.
