Virtual Swiss Drone Industry Tour: Testing and Refinement

Switzerland offers ideal conditions for drone companies thanks to highly innovative researchers, close collaboration between academia and industry as well as pragmatic regulations. The open source software PX4 (Pixhawk), which was developed at ETH and has become the gold standard for drone control, is only one of many examples when Switzerland has carried out pioneer work in the field. The country has established itself as a leading location for innovation, testing and deployment of UAV technologies in a highly regulated but “open skies” environment.
Register now for the first-ever “Virtual Swiss Drone Industry Tour”. Meet leading industry experts and regulators and discover Switzerland’s opportunities for the drone industry.
