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.
It's 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.
AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2018 took place in Denver, CO April 30th - May 3rd. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
These embedded module solutions or COM are being used in an increasing number of drone applications because they allow for a greater degree of flexibility, scalability, as well as longevity, within a very small form factor.
Constantine Samaras and Joshuah Stolaroff for Smithsonian: Reducing the need for trucking by delivering some packages with electric drones could save fuel, and potentially carbon emissions. But how much?
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, it's 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.
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.

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.
