Now, more than ever, evidence and accident scene inspections must follow the CDC’s social distancing guidelines. Drones maximize what can be seen and minimize human contact. Live drone video taken can be a screen share to a Zoom meeting where interested parties far away can also participate in an inspection.
This presentation will introduce attendees to use of drones as inspection tools, explain how they work, give practical applications reliably used today as well as vivid examples of some of their uses. We will explore the different kinds of drones, their basic components, their operational capabilities, and the rules and regulations that must be followed in their operation. Attendees will understand the opportunity to use the map view and 3D model as demonstratives for the courtroom. Attendees will leave with a good understanding of the technology, its application as it applies to their specific professional efforts, costs and accessibility.
In this presentation, CED’s decades of experience will be distilled down to deliver a set of recommendations on how to select and work with engineering experts and understand the tools in their tool box to investigate claims arising from casualties such as fires, explosions, vehicular accidents, structural collapses, boiler machinery and equipment failures, gas and water leaks, and a variety of nature induced losses such as windstorms, earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes.
Only those who register will receive the Zoom link prior to the event.
