Air cargo facilities are undergoing rapid digital transformation via the adoption of automation technologies. - the most recent one being fully autonomous drones. At the leading edge of this innovation in inventory management is IAG Cargo.
The trend of investment in and acquisition of mobile robotic companies seeking to automate the movement of goods within warehouses, fulfillment centers, and manufacturing facilities is still rising. Only in recent months, IDTechEx has seen three notable activities.
It's plotting a new course to the destination utilities are already sailing to (a proactive condition based asset management) and that this new course or technology is often seen as a disruption first before realizing it as an opportunity.
This, in turn, is driving inventory stakeholders to move their top-tier sites from majority bulk storage to majority racking, and from traditional aisles to very narrow aisles (VNAs). Rack heights have steadily increased from 25 feet, on average, to 35 feet or more.
Insurance companies already employ 17% of all commercial drones. Drones can play a part in all the stages of the insurance lifecycle, especially claims management and fraud prevention.
DHL Express and Ehang entered into a strategic partnership in China to realize a major innovation in smart logistics • Solution includes fully autonomous loading and offloading and will increase efficiency and cost-effectiveness with less energy consumption
Our technology enables organizations across a wide spectrum of industries, from public safety and oil and gas to telecommunications and utilities, to integrate drones into daily workflows to reduce costs

As the old saying doesnt exactly go: hundreds of artificial minds are better than one.
Does your battery have the ability to report battery statistics to you while it is airborne? Are you sure that battery will work for your important demo?
Ørsted Partners with SkySpecs to Conduct Automated Robotic Inspection on World's Largest Offshore Wind Turbine Blades
Data collected will enable both companies to roll out technology on larger-sized wind turbines
While there have been demonstrations of swarms involving up to 1000 UAVs, there are few examples of use in practical scenarios. One reason for this is the difficulty of effectively organising and controlling the swarm using a standard transmitter and laptop computer.
Its not a stretch to imagine solo and small farm owners keeping up with the major organizations in the business thanks to improved efficiency, maximized output and faster harvest and care times.
One of the major ways in which drones may change the way we drive and travel is by helping first responders to clear road collisions much more quickly and efficiently.
DJI's new SDK for Windows empowers developers to build native Windows applications that can remotely control DJI drones including autonomous flight and real-time data streaming.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent
• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
