Analyzing Drone Data to Support Rail Operations

August 26, 2020 @ 2:00 PM - 2:45 PM

Railroads continue to tap drone technology to inspect thousands of miles of infrastructure. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), or drones, equipped with cameras and sensors can be used to collect images, video, LiDAR surveys and more. In this session, learn how Collins Aerospace analyzes mass amounts of drone data, and supports the advanced drone operations of North America’s largest Class I railroad.

Presented By:

Learning Objectives:

1. Discuss how railroads are currently deploying drones
2. Review the types of data drones collect, and how that data is securely stored
3. Review how drone data can be analyzed and those results applied to rail operations
4. Discuss the potential of drone technology to be used for rail yard perimeter security
