RALEIGH — The state Department of Transportation is looking for feedback on using drones to inspect bridges, monitor storm damage, deliver lifesaving medical supplies and other ways to benefit the public.
“Public input has been an important part of our program from the beginning and will be even more important as we move forward,” said Basil Yap, UAS program manager for NCDOT in a statement. “We want to make informed decisions based on what people in our state want and what they are concerned about.”
The survey asks for thoughts and concerns about the current and future applications of drones and includes questions about noise, privacy and safety issues, and the way drones can improve lives by delivering of medical supplies, and provide assistance with search and rescue operations.
