New York Drone Conference (not sponsored by Flying Robots NYC)

The Drone and Ariel Robotics Conference (DARC) will be taking place in New York with many exciting speakers including Chris Anderson, Patrick Egan, and Vijay Kumar. Although it is not a Flying Robots NYC event, I thought members of this community would be interested in it. In order to attend, you must register (and pay $200) at
An event description is pasted below and you can find more details at . I hope to see some of you there.

DARC is a multidisciplinary conference about Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and drones—with an emphasis on civilian applications.

Attendees will take part in a far-ranging exploration of these technologies and see firsthand the latest advancements in aerial robotics. In addition to looking at the cultural impact, legal challenges, and business potential, we’ll also examine specific applications for drones including: agriculture, policing, wildlife conservation, weather, mapping, logistics, and more.

DARC is not just about theory—it’s also about practice. At the event, you’ll have opportunities to see flying robots in action and maybe even learn how to deploy a drone of your own. In addition to a technology demo, interactive workshops, and vendor booths, we’ve set the entire 3rd day aside for hacking. Register now!

    From a legal and govenrment viewpoint rather than a technical one. The list of the sessions did not indicate one that would give current capabilities of lower cost drones. Commercial drones will be allowed in 2015.
