Discovering Applications for Thermal Imaging Drones
FLIR Systems, Inc.
FLIR Systems’ aerial thermal imaging cameras are significantly expanding the abilities of drones used for industrial purposes. Combining a drone’s unique vantage point with the capability of detecting variation in temperature on the ground; systems equipped with a thermal payload can increase both safety and efficiency in a variety of industries. The drone industry has been pushed forward by a ‘see it to believe it’ mentality, which then triggers the imagination and ingenuity of manufacturers, software providers, and end-users worldwide. You can expect to see visuals from the real-world applications in: public safety, inspections, agriculture, and more!
World's Smallest GNSS Module - From Idea to Product in 6 weeks
Introducing OriginGPS novel produdct, OriginIoT and demonstrating the usage method to complete a development of location aware IoT device in 6 weeks.The presentation will show the story of our product engineer, Ishai SHAMIR, who was responsible for this development project, showing how quickly and easily he managed to complete the development in time using the OriginIoT product.
Adaptive Drone Mission for Optical Inspections
Technische Universität Chemnitz
This talk presents an approach of adaptive drone mission for optical inspections. In general the flight control is based on a predefined flight path. Therefore points of the flight path are defined by their GPS coordinates and the flight altitude is set. In addition a minimum distance to the object of interest and fundamental restrictions have to be considered. The data of mission sensors and intelligent onboard data processing based on a algorithms and powerful hardware are used for adaptive minimum distance control.
Choosing Right Propellers for Your Platform
The market is full of various propellers types. You can choose from carbon or plastic props, but that is just the beginning. There are propellers for electric motors, multicopter scenarios, various pitches, colors, sizes, designs, shapes and weights. We would like to make your choice easier. We will provide you with basic information about propellers and show you how to choose the perfect prop that fits your drone or UAV. We will show the different use cases and possible solutions to problems such as high noise and vibration, low thrust, overheating and many more.
Drone Defense Group, Inc.
Being a responsible drone operator means being able to do more than just fly your own drone safely. Knowing what types of countermeasures are available to defend against unwanted or unauthorized drones is critical - to help your clients and to protect your own equipment. This presentation will take a look at the various techniques organizations and governments are using to protect their airspace and assets from unwanted, uncontrolled or nefarious UAVs.

Integrated Hyperspectral Drone- Airborne Sensing for Automated Crop and Environmental Assessments
Queensland University of Technology
This workshop will present the features, techniques and results of a system and methodology that uses hyperspectral imaging and advance machine learning methods for more automated assessments of agricultural crops and of the environment.
Using Drones for Rooftop Inspections of Buddhist Temples in Thailand and to Document the Receding Shoreline at the Salton Sea
Monks, Drones and the Salton Sea. This seminar shows how drone attorney Eric Hanscom uses drones for environmental causes. In his wife’s native Thailand, he uses drone to perform roof inspections for Buddhist temples (so that the monks don’t have to climb ladders to do the inspections themselves). His short video, The Ladder Side of Drones, won DJI’s Personal Stories category a few years ago. Eric will also discuss how he is using drones to document how the lowering of the water level in the Salton Sea is affecting the local wildlife.
Vision-based Real-Time Aerial Object Localization and Tracking for UAV Sensing System
Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics
The workshop focuses on the problem of vision-based obstacle detection and tracking for unmanned aerial vehicle navigation. A real-time object localization and tracking strategy from monocular image sequences is developed by effectively integrating the object detection and tracking into a dynamic Kalman model. At the detection stage, the object of interest is automatically detected and localized from a saliency map computed via the image background connectivity cue at each frame; at the tracking stage, a Kalman filter is employed to provide a coarse prediction of the object state, which is further refined via a local detector incorporating the saliency map and the temporal information between two consecutive frames.
