Drones

Eyes on the Sky is an exhibit about drones, which will be on exhibit to Aug. 1 at the Museum of Arts & Sciences in Daytona Beach.

The Museum of Arts & Sciences will present a new exhibit, “Eyes in the Sky: The World of Aerial Drones,” through Aug. 1

The exhibit is presented in collaboration with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Colloquially known as a drone in the public sphere, the vehicles are defined as an aircraft without a human on board. Even though drones can represent vehicles that operate in the water or on the ground, they are commonly associated with aviation, with many today designed as small multicopters (multiple rotor blades) with some type of attached camera system. They can also be remotely-controlled or operated autonomously, depending on the particular design.

Drones have rapidly made their way into every facet of our lives. From sophisticated drones flying in the military, aiding in search and rescue efforts after natural disasters, efficiently fertilizing farmer’s crops, taking high resolution pictures and video from unique vantage points, nimbly maneuvering around obstacles in exciting races, and even flying on other worlds within our Solar System, these unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, continue to progress and evolve in interesting ways.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at 352 S. Nova Road, Daytona Beach.
