SUSBEXPO 2018

Recommended Posts

Since the Silicon Valley Drone Show is relatively close to me (approx. 100 miles) I was considering attending. The registration fee of $100 seems much more reasonable than other drone events. Anyone one else going or have attended previous years to see if its worth while ?

Huh?

sUBS Small Unmanned Business Systems kind of rolls off the tongue a bit better.  But I guess that could be confused with small United Bank of Scotland...

Just won a free pass to this show so it would be a shame not to go. Just need to find a relatively inexpensive hotel for one night in San Francisco if that's possible.

I really enjoyed attending my first sUSBexpo in San Francisco. A great bunch of speakers on Wednesday followed by a series of interesting demos on Treasure Island on Thursday.

Great to hear, @Spitfire76. How was Greg Crutsinger // Scholar Farms? Will be meeting up with him in Denver next week at XPONENTIAL. His new plant mapping course is puhreeeetty awesome.

Greg's presentation was one of the best. I think we have all come to realize in this industry, a drone business is more likely to succeed if the creator's have a knowlege or background in the vertical that they are trying to serve and Greg really knows what farmers need and the challengers that the drone industry faces in providing a service to the agriculture industry.

I found my notes from his presentation on some of the challenges in using UAVs for agriculture. 

  • High volume of data (images) to post process.
  • Slow or no internet coverage to upload images in rural areas.
  • Often satellite images are sufficient and more cost effective.
  • No standards
  • Better ROI with high value crops (e.g vineyards).
