Mariella Moon for EnGadget: While the team's UAVs are scanning the skies, their tactical plane will focus on what's happening down below. The plane is equipped with high-resolution CCTVs with facial recognition
As you can see, the continued growth in the creation of drones only shows the shocking improvement in the world of software and tech devices. Just like Artificial Intelligence, its another fantastic glimpse into the future!
Katie Fehrenbacher for GreenTechMedia: For drone makers, that means a drone could fly farther and longer on a single charge. For example, a drone surveying acres of crop land could fly for an hour instead of just 20 minutes with a standard battery.
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.

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, Flytrexs 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. Its DJIs new solution for detecting rogue drones that are flying nearby.
Elizabeth Woyke for MIT Technology Review: At least 15 community colleges offer them, but its 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),
