On the first day of the 2022 Commercial UAV Expo, attendees were able to check out some of the latest innovations in the UAV space in both hardware and software. In Track Two of the Exhibitor Showcase series, 15 companies showed off their hardware, sensors, and cameras, covering everything from safety measures to hardware used by public safety officials, to consortiums of local companies looking to grow the industry in their local areas.
