Recording: Austin Drone City: UAVs for Public Good, Mar 10, 2019

Recent tragic events including an active shooter at a Las Vegas concert and the bombing at the Boston Marathon illustrate how public events can quickly escalate into a life threatening situations.
Austin is a vibrant & progressive community that annually serves as host to many multi-day events that bring 10’s of thousands of attendees to its city. However, hosting events such as ACL Festival, Formula 1 and of course the SXSW festivals creates significant challenges for local public safety organizations that must ensure the safe and secure environment for event attendees.
In our panel of Austin public safety leaders, we will discuss the use emerging technologies to better enable and prepare their organizations to rapidly respond to any type of public safety threat for event attendees.
