ODU students helping firefighters, law enforcement through drone class - Mike Connors, The Virginian-Pilot

Old Dominion University students have spent this semester working with drones – but not to spy on anyone. Rather, they’ve focused on projects to help firefighters find blazes in remote areas and aid law enforcement in navigating water rescues. They’ve worked with crews in Carova, N.C., an Outer Banks community filled with dirt and sand roads and long stretches of beach that aren’t easy to reach. The course is offered jointly by James Madison, George Mason and Old Dominion universities. Forty-one students, 16 from ODU, meet on Wednesday nights, sometimes through videoconferencing. http://pilotonline.com/news/local/education/public-schools/odu-students-helping-firefighters-law-enforcement-through-drone-class/article_84d13646-c204-54a9-a33a-75c6107ba742.html
