Finally, you can expect to meet the teams behind key infrastructure projects including Thames Tideway and HS2 in the Geospatial area offering hands on experience in the DCW Drone Racing competition where they can take control of their own UAV and pit their drone operating skills against DCW’s ‘stig’ racer.
