This industry research forum will provide an opportunity for an open discussion on the future potential, risks and challenges of the use of drones.
The built environment industry is undergoing a digital transformation. Drones, autonomous vehicles, BIM and data analytics are impacting the whole value chain from design through to operation of buildings and infrastructure.
At this afternoon forum, participants will gain insight into current research, innovation and challenges of the use of technology for data driven design and construction. The event will provide an opportunity for an open discussion on the future potential, risks and challenges of the use of drones.
Speakers include Dr Alex Fisher (RMIT University), Ambassador Tim Kane (Australian Embassy Spain), Marc Viader (Drone Futura), Aldo Sollazzo (Noumena/IAAC) and Luis Moratinos (Ferrovial).
Alex Fisher - RMIT University
Dr Fisher completed his PhD in 2013 at RMIT university exploring the effect of freestream turbulence on fixed and flapping micro air vehicle wings. Alex has extensive expertise in aerodynamics, avionics design, and signal processing for guidance, navigation, and control systems for unmanned aircraft. In addition to pursuing his own research interests, Alex supports a number of existing research projects and mentors undergraduate engineering thesis students.
