by DRONELIFE Staff Writer Ian M. Crosby
FlytBase, Inc. has announced the second edition of NestGen, the industry’s largest global virtual summit on autonomous BVLOS drone operations. Held on February 23rd, the 12-hour event will feature over 45 speakers from companies such as DJI, Iris Automation, Elsight, TruWeather Solutions, Hover UAV, Aerodyne, Delta Drone International, Citymesh, Paladin Drones, EVA, Zing Drone Delivery, and Valqari. Topics will include the applications and verticals of autonomous drone technology, drone-in-a-box solutions, BVLOS enablers, and drone delivery operations.
The demo arena will give attendees the chance to see the demonstration of over eight latest drone-in-a-box stations. Attendees will also be free to take part in interactive workshops, product displays, hands-on demonstrations, specialized breakout sessions, and Q&A segments.
“2022 has been a significant milestone for autonomous drone operations,” said FlytBase Founder and CEO Nitin Gupta. “With numerous positive affirmations from industry leaders, new docking station launches, regulatory waivers, successful deployments, and case studies, it is a matter of when rather than why BVLOS operations will become mainstream.”
NestGen provides a platform for discussion and collaboration, gathering industry leaders, experts, and innovators to showcase the best practices and solutions for BVLOS operations.
Last year’s event featured 41 experts, who held more than 25 sessions on a range of topics such as BVLOS flight safety, regulations, latest trends, and the adoption of drone-in-a-box for monitoring construction sites, emergency response, and security operations. Approximately 1480 participants attended the event from 76 nations. On display at the Demo Arena were innovative modular drone docking stations such as Hextronics Global, Airscort Mini, Idiployer, and CounterDome, 3 of which were showcased for the first time at NestGen.
