Stockwell Street Drone Demonstration April 28, 2016

Posted by Phil Hudson in : Events and Exhibitions, News , add a comment

Visiting lecturer / aerial surveyor / landscape architect Peter Wilder demonstrated the Inspire 1 drone in the Stockwell Street crit pit; showing how it is able to provide stable indoor flight using its optical flow sensors.

The flight time of the Inspire 1 is dictated by its battery life of 20 minutes with larger surveys packaged into chunks of that time.  It can stream live video back to the base station at 4K resolution.

Other interesting applications of drone technology include firefighting – with thermal imaging showing the hottest part of the fire so this location can be transmitted to “smart” fire engines, and crop dusting with the drone indicating any gaps in coverage of the insecticide, fungicide etc.

“Landscape as Urbanism” proposes a general theory for thinking the city through the medium of landscape. The lecture rehearses recent claims for the landscape architect as the urbanist of our age and describes landscape as a medium of design from a variety of disciplinary formations and professional identities. It surveys the emergence of various professions responsible for the shape of the city across the nineteenth and twentieth centuries including landscape architecture, urban planning, and urban design.

Jinny’s work as a landscape and garden designer arose from her career as a psychologist and psychotherapist working therapeutically with people afflicted by schizophrenia, PTSD and acute anxiety. These days she is known for creating beautiful landscapes. Both careers have confirmed the effect landscape has on our health. As a result her work is perennially rooted in health as it relates to humans and our wider environment. In our session we will explore the symbiotic influence of our relationship to the world we inhabit and the schism Jinny believes we are currently living through.
