The UNVEX 2020 programme is being altered to include information and debate regarding recent uses of drones to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
UNVEX, Spain’s largest drone event, is set host its tenth anniversary event on the rescheduled dates of October 6-8, 2020.
Now it has announced the exhibition, which will take place at the Cidade da Cultura of Santiago de Compostela in north-western Spain, is being updated to include coverage of the many new applications for UAVs found in recent months.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has seen countries around the world increasing their use of drones in both public and private capacities.
Security and defence sectors are using drones for surveillance, but police services too are monitoring national lockdowns via UAVs.
They have also been used for the purposes of disinfecting large areas, both indoors and out.
The transportation of medical supplies has been one use for the healthcare sector. Another has seen drones with thermal imaging cameras take the temperatures of citizens to screen for COVID-19 symptoms.
UNVEX promises that all of these uses and more will feature heavily at its October event.
