Event Details



Rethink, Reimagine and Reinvent The Power of UAV Technology

                                                           ——Drones: The Aerial Swiss Army Knife




PingWest and UC Berkeley Association of Chinese Entrepreneurs (ACE) are proud to host a special event on Drones at Memorial Glade of UC Berkeley Campuson Saturday, September 13th. These unmanned aerial vehicles have entered the public conscious in a major way in the past few years and we know this event will educate attendees on many of the functions and abilities of drones. The usage of drones has become a very divisive issue as we have seen drones’ violent and destructive capabilities many times--this event seeks to share the innocuous capacities and benefits of drone technology.

UC Berkeley and PingWest will be joined by 3D Robotics, DJI, Ehang Drone and Skycatch for an afternoon that will surely surprise you. This public event will also feature companies whose futures are closely tied to drones technology and policy such as camera companies and those involved in designing self-driving cars. We hope to inspire more promising entrepreneurs, tech expertise and students to rethink, reimagine and reinvent the future of UAV Technology.
