From manual drones to Skydio: An industry veteran on best practices for the Age of Autonomy

Autonomous drones are helping utilities, engineering firms, and government agencies generate detailed inspections of hard-to-reach assets with higher precision, less pilot training requirements, and less ground risk than the incumbent manual solutions commonly used in the past.

This webinar will feature Colin Romberger, who recently joined Skydio as a Solutions Engineer after a decade-long career in the drone industry including studies at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and a training career at DART Drones. He will be sharing lessons learned from a diverse set of experiences with manual drones, as well as his perspective as he witnesses how autonomy is revolutionizing those operations with Skydio customers.

InterDrone, The International Drone Conference and Exposition, has a mission to connect, educate, and provide the necessary knowledge, tools, and business connections to advance the commercial drone industry.

Through webinars, podcasts, white papers, archived keynote presentations, panel discussions and more, UAS industry participants have exposure to the most necessary information and relationships needed to transform their business, and bring the commercial drone industry forward.
