Message from the President
With the start of 2017, we rolled out a series of efforts to strengthen the unmanned systems (UxS) business community within Nevada: more recruiting of remote pilots, more community outreach, and more collaboration within the community. We have promoted Nevada through multiple Remote Pilot’s Councils, with well-received support from AUVSI’s Chief Pilot. We have coordinated a sponsorship with Interdrone 2018, and provide benefits to our members. We had a very successful Nevada State Pavilion at Xponential 2018 in Denver, and are very thankful for the member participation. We aim to repeat this next year at Xponential 2019 in Chicago, and encourage all members to contact the Chapter officers to secure their booth space with us.
Stay tuned to this website (and update your profile with a current email address) for more details.
Thank you again,
Gwent Police in Gwent, Wales has launched its latest UAS.
Gwent Police worked with UAS manufacturers during an eight-month trial to build and test the first bespoke Police drone in Wales, resulting in the Sky Mantis UAS, which will be used for a variety of operations including searches for high-risk missing people, policing large-scale events and disorder, and crime scene photography.
Zomato, an Indian restaurant search and discovery service, has announced that it has successfully tested its drone technology.
The company says that it met all of its parameters during the non-commercial delivery, which covered a distance of five kilometers in about 10 minutes. Using a hybrid UAS—a fusion of rotary wing and fixed wings on a single UAS—the company reached a peak speed of 80 kilometers per hour, carrying a payload of five kilograms.
Pima Community College (PCC) and TuSimple have announced the launch of the first autonomous driving certificate program for truck drivers.
Known as the “Autonomous Vehicle Driver and Operations Specialist” certificate program, the program will provide truck drivers with the knowledge and skills needed to expand their roles in the industry, as it prepares individuals for a variety of jobs including training the autonomous system as test drivers, operating the vehicle in situations where autonomous driving is not suitable and to remotely monitor the system from a command center.
