Drone Transit in Knoxville: A Conceptual Plan

Professor Marleen Davis' and student research assistant, Nicholas Williams' presentation on a vision for drones in Knoxville

Part of our annual Community Collaborative involves our partnership with the UT College of Architecture + Design. For the work on Sutherland Avenue, Professor Marleen Davis instructed her 3rd year students to pick sites for individual projects along the street, and work together to create a master plan for the future of the corridor. Those projects (and the Collaborative efforts as a whole) can be seen in our Sutherland Avenue booklet.

Professor Marleen Davis and her student research assistant, Nicholas Williams have continued to develop an idea for the corridor that envisions the future of transit through the use of drones. Nicholas Williams recently presented the design and posted the presentation on Youtube.  To watch the video click below.
