Share Your Opinions On Drone Technology / CSU Channel Islands Study
Dr. Sean Anderson and his students at California State University Channel Islands are conducting this survey on behalf of their ESRM 370 undergraduate class and their Aerial and Aquatic Robotic Research (“AARR”) Laboratory group. We are studying the current use of and attitudes towards Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. These devices are variously also known as UAV, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Remotely Piloted Systems (RPS), or simply “drones.” While the military use of these systems may often be what people think of when they hear about this technology, we are exploring the rapidly-expanding, non-military use of systems created by hobbyists, researchers, and private industry.

We expect to conclude this survey by late April of 2017 and subsequently post our results by early May to both our blog ( and our suite of social media outlets. Please check these sites in early May for our polling results or feel free to contact us with any questions.
