Can drones provide value to State and Local Transportation Departments?
That’s the question that we explore in today’s show. Paul Wheeler is part of the Technology Advancement Team at the Utah Dept. of Transportation. There he has served in many roles, including the Lead UAS Coordinator, survey technology advisor, lead of the 3D visualization group, Cadd support specialist, and construction surveyor. He is an instrument rated private pilot and has helped multiple flight schools develop interactive training for their programs and is working to fully implement the UAS program within the Utah Department of Transportation. In this edition of the Drone Radio Show, Paul talks about the efforts and results of using drones to support the mission of a public transportation agency.
