    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Deep learning (DL) has gathered significant interest recently as an Artificial Intelligence (AI) paradigm, with success in a wide range of applications such as image and speech recognition, autonomous systems, self-driving cars, cyber-physical systems, and many more. Among the most promising systems that can utilize deep learning are Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) which are becoming an attractive solution for a wide range of applications. In particular, Road Traffic Monitoring (RTM), and Emergency Response (ER) systems constitute a domain where the use of UAVs is receiving significant interest. Under the above deployments, UAVs are responsible for searching, collecting and sending, in real time, vehicle information either for traffic regulation purposes or to aid search and rescue in emergency response.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
