mapKITE goes smart: presentation at the Smart City Expo World Congres 2015!

It is expected that in the year 2050, the 75% of the world's population will live in cities. How will we manage it? Are cities prepared to such a radical change? This is one fundamental question that is addressed by the SmartCity Expo World Congress, a venue held yearly in the city of Barcelona which provides to everyone involved in the wide, fascinating world of the Smart Cities the chance to be inspired, share experience and knowledge, strive for innovation, network and do business.

 

Within this context, the Catalonia Smart Drone group, an initial taskforce building the cluster of the industry in Catalunya of smart solutions with drones, has held its first public presentation gathering relevant actors (private companies, research centers, universities) and providing booths for its members and a flight demo section. Additionally, the group organized the Catalunya Smart Drone Conference, a session where experts of the sector presented smart services and solutions with drones applied to many different fields related to smart cities and beyond.

GeoNumerics, as one of the members of the Catalonia Smart Drone group, joined the event and gave the presentation entitled "Mapping of corridors using a tandem unmanned aerial system and terrestrial vehicle - the mapKITE concept". In this talk, given by Pere Molina, the new paradigm for geo-data acquisition was introduced and its perception under the different markets was discussed. Finally, the Horizon 2020 project ideas, consortium and goals were also provided in the presentation.
