Materials from the FUAVE event in Oulu

The third FUAVE Stakeholder Event was organised in Oulu Linnanmaa. It included exclusive keynotes from various stakeholder organisations, such as flight operators, UAS-related associations, companies, certifiers and drone manufacturers. Along with the presentations, there was also an indoor exhibition and flight demonstrations of the latest drone equipment, applications and payload accessories.

In addition, a bootcamp workshop was organised related to the FUAVE Oulu West test area. The FUAVE project is currently establishing UAS test areas across Finland. The first areas have now been established in the Oulu region, providing a one-stop-shop for research, business and applications. This interactive bootcamp session focused on understanding the potential of the test areas for different types of trials, including city planning, deliveries, forestry, connectivity and sensors.
