Lobo Living Room: Drones: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

Video recording:

-

Drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are expected to become a fixture in the skies in the coming years, with one estimate suggesting there could be as many as 30,000 drones hovering in American airspace by 2020. Drones are already in use in many ways — some welcome, some controversial.

Join us for a presentation and demonstration by two UNM experts, Luke Davis, '01, and Luis Valbuena Reyes, a current grad student in mathematics. Luke is the managing partner of Flytcam Studios, one of New Mexico's first drone videography-focused studios and Luis serves as a Research Assistant in Electrical Computer Engineering. You will hear how drones have proven to be valuabale assets to society, with a discussion about the negative perceptions.

The presentation will be at UNM Centennial Engineering Center, Building #112 on the UNM map, Robert J. Stamm Commons (Room 1044), UNM Main Campus, Albuquerque, NM.
