## About Greener Construction Workshops

The industry theme for upcoming workshops will be around the new technology use cases for construction and engineering, with a particular focus on sustainability practices. There will be 5 workshops that will utilise 5 distinct technologies, where students will show and explain the use cases for improving sustianabiily in construction along with reducing waste, pollution and errors.

The 5 technologies we will be showcasing across all the workshops are:

  • Drone technology and Unmanned Arial Vehicles (UAVs)
  • Virtualitics and visualisation of data
  • Teslasuit and Haptic Feedback
  • Mixed and Augmented Reality - Microsoft Hololens 2
  • Matterport - 3D for Architecture, Engineering & Construction

### Greener Construction Workshop on Drone Technology and Small Unmanned Arial Vehicles (sUAV)

Get hands-on experience of Drone use in the construction industry and a clear perspective on its application. In partnership with SkillsHub:MK, MKAI will be organising the first Greener Construction Workshop on Drone Technology and small Unmanned Arial Vehicles (sUAV) will take place on 14th July, 1-4pm BST at the Chaffron Centre, Milton Keynes, MK6 5LP.

#### Benefits:

External industry guests will make this workshop immersive and innovative. The session will incorporate real-world sustainability case studies, interactive segments and a lot of live drone teaching with practical feedback from industry professionals.

The workshop will be on-site, with some workshop segments offered in different alternate formats incl. in-app screen recordings, immersive 360-videos, and behind-the-scenes footage – giving participants the chance to observe from different viewing angles and perspectives (trainer vs. drone).

#### Our aim:

#### The session will be complemented by real-life case studies, participating SMEs’ use cases and flying several field missions (subject to local flying conditions/FRZ/weather on the day). Participants will come away with a clear understanding of each stage involved in incorporating drones into their business to see results on cost savings, increased safety levels and improved development process.

#### What we will cover:

- A practical overview of both drone hardware (predominantly with an airborne DJI Mini drone family with some bigger drones on site too) and software to fly them as well as post-flight AI analysis and editing software.
- Practical flight demonstrations incl. simple person-/object-tracking with Ai, Way-point mapping missions and Aerial videography/photography.
- Exploration and discussion of business-oriented drone applications incl. Infrastructure inspection, Surveying & Geospatial mapping for nature conservation and greener construction purposes.

#### The outcome:

Construction companies in the area will be able to see how to implement drone technology in their workflow. The workshop is aimed to inspire, give participants concrete pointers on how to use innovations such as drone tech, and artificial intelligence for post-processing/geospatial mapping and to overcome initial barriers so that businesses can research sUAVs further, develop their own sUAV-based solutions and confidently embrace innovative tech and empower themselves - the Sky is literally the limit!
