"These are the drones you're looking for...", to bastardize Obi-Wan's famous Star Wars quote! A drone, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), is a powered, aerial vehicle that does not carry a human operator, uses aerodynamic forces to provide vehicle lift, can fly autonomously or be piloted remotely, can be expendable or recoverable, and can carry a lethal or nonlethal payload. Mostly associated with aerial operations, drones range from vehicles that look similar to airplanes to quadcopters but also include floating and underwater drones. Sometimes you'll even hear autonomous wheeled or tracked vehicles called drones. In this special Health Systems Chat in Social VR event we will focus on nonmilitary uses of drones, including medical and emergency management. Via the magic of VR we will meet aboard the SpaceX droneship "Of Course I Still Love You." This informal meetup occurs during two virtual conferences, Commercial UAV Expo Americas and The USA Science & Engineering Festival, tho this event is unaffiliated with either conference.
