One of IECA's University Partner Schools, Auburn University, will present this hot topic webinars on unmanned aerial vehicles. This webinar will showcase current ongoing research focused on using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for conducting site inspections applications. The study, being conducted by Auburn University researchers, focuses on erosion and sediment control applications in construction. Participants will be exposed to UAV technologies to develop: project progression documentation, photogrammetric site visualization, highly detailed digital elevation models, and assessment of vegetation and crop health. Developed inspection methods, case study site assessments, and preliminary research findings and results will be discussed. The webinar will cover topics geared towards conducting inspections for construction, infrastructure, environmental, and agricultural applications.
- Understand the importance of sediment control for water quality, and the importance of best management practices during construction
- Understand techniques used in good sediment basin design.
- Understand the proper design, installation and maintenance of various components associated with sediment basins.
