BROOKINGS, S.D. (KELO) — The use of drones is expanding throughout the world.

And that can be seen right here in KELOLAND. Where students at SDSU are pushing the technology with the ATTLAS project. A project with a high flying goal. 

“Our goal is to create a drone that’s big enough to carry a person. That doesn’t mean that it will carry a person, just that it’s big enough to do that,” SDSU senior Isaac Smithee  said. “So this has all kinds of applications outside of personal transportation.”

Coming up in Tuesday’s Eye on KELOLAND, Dan Santella takes us to Brookings to see how the team is working to accomplish the goal.
