Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based Traffic Monitoring and Management

NJDOT held a Peer Exchange on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS, also known as Drones) on October 3-5, 2017. Representatives of six state DOTs, FAA, the NJ State Police and the NJ Forest Fire Service met to discuss best practices, policies and procedures, current projects, research studies, funding sources, state UAS legislation, and common challenges. The meeting resulted in insights on key topics such as data management and privacy, regulation of airspace, training requirements, public education, and the continued exchange of best practice and research among state DOTs.

On October 25, 2017, UAS Coordinator, Glenn Stott spoke on the topic at the NJDOT Research Showcase. To learn more, see his presentation.
