Guy Cherni, Opinion Contributor for The Hill: Surprising though it may seem, the key for increasing drone-based value can only come through increased restriction and regulation of the industry.
Currently there are millions of drones in circulation, in amateur and professional use. With the continued premise that they are an unrestricted danger, it should warrant thought as to why there are not more major accidents or incidents than are currently being reported.
Patrick Caughill for Futurism: The feature would use the onboard computing system to analyze conditions to determine the best course of action.
Drone deliveries drastically reduce the cost of last-mile deliveries while meeting customers' demand for receiving their orders as quickly as possible. In Iceland, Flytrex's partner, e-commerce marketplace AHA, has experienced a 60% reduction in cost per delivery.
Drone-based inspections provide cost reduction and revenue enhancement opportunities of over $600/turbine when compared to ground-based inspections. The savings value is two folds ($1200/turbine) when compared to corrective/reactionary maintenance.
Lauren Goode for The Verge: Martino calls this box "the gizmos," but its real name is Aeroscope. It's DJI's new solution for detecting rogue drones that are flying nearby.
Elizabeth Woyke for MIT Technology Review: At least 15 community colleges offer them, but it's not clear how many students parlay their new skills into jobs.
The Atlas Pro is particularly suited to infrastructure inspection, emergency response, security and reconnaissance. The Blue-J fixed-wing UAV is ideally for security HLS missions and long-range infrastructure inspections
Andy Pasztor for The Wall Street Journal: Prompted by the proliferation of drones, international aviation authorities on Friday will kick off a first-of-its-kind symposium soliciting industry ideas about potential global operating standards.
PMMI and Workhorse partner to provide show attendees an exclusive glimpse at advancements in aerial automated delivery systems
Siyi Chen for Quartz: A prototype created by the scientists can catalogue items instantly as the drones fly up and down the aisles.
Rich Haridy for New Atlas: In an interview with Defense One, Atuar states the current device can carry and fire a variety of different weapons up to a weight of 22 lb (10 kg),
Kyle Mizokami for Popular Mechanics: A drone carrying a grenade infiltrated an ammunition dump in the Ukraine, setting off an explosion that caused an astounding billion dollars worth of damage.
Simon Parkin for MIT Technology Review: Drone delivery won't happen until the unmanned vehicle can master the emergency landing.
North Dakota will be competing, for the first time ever, in the world's oldest aerial robotics competition for colleges and universities. A team of North Dakota State University students will travel to Atlanta, Georgia to compete in the competition, which runs from July 25th to July 27th.
