Drones do Damage Control_ Coworking NYC_ shared office space_ Meeting Rooms, Conference Rooms

By September 14, 2017 No Comments

New York City is no stranger to hurricane disasters. Five years on, much of the City, its residents, and its businesses are still recovering from the devastation left by Hurricane Sandy. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, experts rely on new technology to help rebuild: drones. Here’s how drones expedite recovery efforts, and a list of technology companies affiliated with Workville NYC’s co-working space that can also help.

 

The FAA restricts airspace during natural disasters; drones are an exception to that rule. The FAA authorized 43 organizations in Houston to operate drones, including the following: oil and gas companies, insurance companies, media organizations, railroad, and first responders.

Drones capture a live feed so hazardous damage like collapsed infrastructure or oil and gas leaks can be analyzed from a safe distance, and experts can coordinate a response before ever entering an area. Also, for the first time ever, insurance companies are depending on live drone feeds to properly assess and handle insurance claims.

Last year, the FAA rolled out regulations for drones: drones can’t weigh more than 55 pounds, must stay 400 feet in the air, and cannot fly over densely populated areas. So this is the first time the rules and regulations have really been put to the test. Test passed. Drones are proving instrumental in speeding up recovery efforts.

 

 

Here at Workville, we are awed by the importance of technology in recovery efforts. Below are the companies affiliated with our NYC coworking space that are also  helpful resources:

  1. Telport Ninja – Document your home by filming a virtual tour before the storm hits, in case you need to submit an insurance claim after the storm. (Here’s an example of a virtual tour in our NYC coworking space. It’s a very detailed video experience.)
  2. Rapid SOS – Transformative technology, including wearables, can connect you to first responders and provide helpful direct data links from IoT and connected devices.
  3. Nuzzle – This is a waterproof GPS collar for your pet; the pet’s location is tracked through an app on your phone. Veterinary history can also be synced with the app, which is important for pets that are temporarily in shelters and foster care.
  4. Last but not least, while this is not affiliated with our midtown Manhattan office, we think it’s very important to know. Click here for the official FTC Hurricane guide.
