The Conference Working Group of UNVEX 2020 is reshaping its conference program to include the experience gained with the use of drone during the coronavirus crisis. Over the past few months, unmanned or remotely piloted systems are being used for several activities that will be presented and analyzed from 6th to 8th of October in Santiago de Compostela.

The State Security and Defense Forces are incorporating drones for surveillance purposes, especially in areas that are hard to access, equipped with cameras and speakers. Additionally, they are being used to disinfect large areas, accomplishing the disinfection of double the surface in less time and avoiding the risk of agents.

The health system is also benefiting from the use of drone, as they have proven to be useful for medical supplies transport, sending medicine to remote locations and even taking the citizens body temperature thanks to the technology and sensors these drones have included. Overall, they are a great ally for healthcare and security.

Many local police departments have increased the number of drones in their units due to the sanitary crisis. Their experience will be essential to implement the uses that these systems have in the services that the Administration provides to the citizen, baseline of this edition of UNVEX.

UNVEX 2020 is no stranger to this situation and aims to be one of the first forums in the sector to include users presenting their experiences and companies explaining their solutions for the audience to debate.
