    Amplifying the Current Infrastructure for the Imminent EV Transition

    May 18, 14:00 - 15:00 (ET)

    Experience Level: Any level of experience

    The transition to electric vehicles has been led mostly by relative newcomers to the automobile industry while traditional automakers have been amping up their plans and offerings for new BEV and PHEV vehicles. With many governments revealing plans to "ban" gas-powered automobiles by 2050, 2035, or even 2030, the transition will be happening. 

    While there are numerous private charging network companies expanding the charging infrastructure for EVs throughout the country, the same governments continue to evaluate how best to support the improvements to infrastructure within their jurisdictions and how best to support private and public entities alike on providing these facilities.

    We will look back at trends and attempts over the past 15 years for providing infrastructure to support EV owners as well as evaluating current trends and how these trends support and prepare for extensive adoption of EVs and the transition of the fleet. We will evaluate case studies and discuss applications of Level I, II, and III charging, autonomous charging, battery swapping, and wireless charging. While the end result is to provide charge to an automobile, the solutions and infrastructure supporting the solutions are not a one-size-fits-all approach.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Attendees will know the types of charging infrastructure and electrical system demands.
    2. Attendees will understand the impact of the transition to EVs on existing infrastructure and customer/user behavior.
    3. Attendees will be able to identify opportunities and risks for charging infrastructure implementation.

    Mapping the Seabed Using UAVs and Semi-autonomous Vessels

    Jun 1, 14:00 - 15:00 (ET)

    Experience Level: Any level of experience

    UAVs are in every technician's toolbox. Surveyors use UAVs for volume computations and topographic mapping, integrity engineers for inspections at height or confined spaces. 

    Data is easy to capture but can be difficult to manipulate. How much of this depends on the UAV, the sensors and payloads, along with operator proficiency. 

    How can we integrate UAV data into currently existing datasets or even combine UAV captured data with other spatially referenced data such as shallow water bathymetry. 

    This webinar will discuss the evolution of the UAV, available sensors, combining spatially referenced data and why choosing the right payload fwill ultimately determine how efficient your drone program is. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Picking an UAV involves an understanding of the sensors and payload capability 

    2. Understanding of spatial information collected and how to merge or ensure seamless coverage 

    3. Evolution of UAVs and operator proficiency

    Engineering: Addressing Unintended Consequences as a Professional

    Jun 15, 14:00 - 15:00 (ET)

    Experience Level: Any level of experience

    This session explores the many cases where the engineering ‘cure’ is worse than the initial problem.  Mr. Easley walks through basic scenarios where forethought and adequate stakeholder involvement could have prevented some major problems.  The session provides some ‘checklist’ items to consider that can give engineers the ability to see into the future and prevent catastrophic problems before they are created.  In addition, Mr. Easley highlights some solutions that have yielded benefits wildly beyond those anticipated by the designers. Attendees should leave this session with reasons to think before they implement their ‘perfect’ design.

    Learning Objective:

    After attending this presentation, attendees will have a new thought process that can be used in any type of engineering solution design.
