Morphobots for Mars: Caltech Develops All-Terrain Robot as Candidate for NASA Mission

CalTech has unveiled its multi-talented robot that can fly, drive, walk and do eight permutations of motions through a combination of its skills. They call it the Multi-Modal Mobility Morphobot, or M4.

Challenges in Drone Technology

Drone technology continues to advance depending on specific applications. For this article, we'll be looking at compact drones used in a variety of applications that need continuous and autonomous inspection of chimneys, shafts, and tanks.

Valmont Records Longest BVLOS Drone Flight on the Wings of T-Mobile 5G

The Un-carrier helps Valmont capture mission-critical data in industry-first beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone inspection operation

How a Government Drone Blacklist Could Impact Farms

The federal government has passed legislation that prohibits government entities, government funded organizations, and private contractors that service the government. contracts from purchasing/using Chinese-made drones

Powering Drones with Improved Mobile Mapping Systems

Have you ever wondered how we are able to have an accurate online map to use to get to anywhere we want to go? The answer lies in a process called mobile mapping. Mobile mapping allows users to visualize, record and understand environments, wherever they may be.

The Developing Role of Drones In Manufacturing

It's easy to mistake drones for glorified cameras, especially since many applications rely on the aerial photography and videography technology built into most unmanned vehicles. However, modern drones can do so much more.

Challenges faced by drones in healthcare - Drones can help improve healthcare, but it is still a new technology

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.
