Allison attended in Taiwan a workshop on UAVs at the National Cheng Kung University. The outcome of this is helping in the selection of a UAV for the RISER project to support our ongoing research in grassland curing monitoring. Allison also attended the UN FIG conference in Malaysia where various discussions were held on disaster management technologies and their transfer to developing countries. Finally, RISER is currently working on supporting an initiative by the CFA in Anglesea to deploy a sensor network in collaboration with local primary schools as part of a disaster management education outreach project. RISER will provide training and support in the deployment and use of these sensors.
