Simulation models show that this new mode of transport could have huge cost advantages, with savings between 20 and 50 per cent compared to traditional multi-tiered land transport systems.

Swiss Drone Companies leading the way on drone approvals

This spring, two Zurich-based Swiss drone companies received authorizations worldwide to break through the way of revenue generating use cases for BVLOS flights and for operations near one of the highest risks facilities, airports.

Automated drones could scare birds off agricultural fields

In the future, cameras could spot blackbirds feeding on grapes in a vineyard and launch drones to drive off the avian irritants, then return to watch for the next invading flock. All without a human nearby.

XAG promotes drones in Vietnam to boost rice farming while cutting fertilizer use

From direct seeding, pesticide spraying to fertilizer application, XAG's agricultural drones have seen its increasing popularity among rural youth who are keen to earn a decent salary as drone pilot.

New study shows methods robots can use to self-assess their own performance

Research is shedding light on how autonomous systems can foster human confidence in robots. Largely, the research suggests that humans have an easier time trusting a robot that offers some kind of self-assessment as it goes about its tasks.

Adaptive Swarm Robotics Could Revolutionize Smart Agriculture

The multidisciplinary research team believes that by utilizing swarm robotics to reduce soil compaction and working to avoid herbicide-resistant weeds through nonchemical methods of control, significant ecological and environmental benefits can be achieved.
