Police Are Using Drones to Assess Traffic Accidents

We’ve heard lots in the news lately about people flying drones as a hobby. We’ve also seen some spectacular footage being collected by scientists, hobbyists, and news agencies with drones. The federal government is attempting to update their legislation to adequately regulate the use of drones by the non-commercial market.

What we are seeing now though is the use of drones by military and police in Canada for a variety of purposes. The police in Ontario are using the drones to assess and clear traffic accidents on major highways. The drones are allowing accurate and real time decisions to be made about traffic control, accident/crime scene investigation, and resource deployment. The police are claiming that considerable amounts of time and money are being saved by the public as a result of the drones.

Police are also using them in large crowd control activities in order to determine size and composition of crowds that they wish to manage. One can only imagine their use in another G20 like scenario in Toronto.

In the meantime a local Waterloo company is benefitting from the investments police and military are making in the drone market. Aeryon Labs is a major supplier to this high end market.
