Obtaining Public Opinion About sUAS Activity in an Urban Environment
Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing
Members of the public completed a short survey to complement a larger flight demonstration and data collection exercise in Corpus Christi, Texas. Respondents were invited to share their concerns and were asked about their knowledge of small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) operations. Participants were familiar with sUAS operations and reported feeling moderately comfortable with urban area operations, reflecting this in opinions that sUAS are as safe as other modes of transport. Compared to other UAS opinion surveys, participants gave similar responses to affect questions but were more knowledgeable concerning sUAS operational regulations. At first exposure to these live sUAS flights, participants reported positive impressions about the traffic management system that was being demonstrated.
