Askelson, working with colleagues like Paul Snyder, a leader in unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) education and training at UND, has an ambitious proposal to make the UND campus and nearby Ray Richard’s Golf Course an autonomous urban test bed and education/training range, respectively.
The former would turn the UND campus into a “please fly zone,” an island where UAS and other autonomous systems are free to integrate with society in a quasi-urban setting.
