AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2018 will take 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.
Drone deliveries drastically reduce the cost of last-mile deliveries while meeting customers' demand for receiving their orders as quickly as possible. In Iceland, Flytrex's 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. It's DJI's new solution for detecting rogue drones that are flying nearby.
Elizabeth Woyke for MIT Technology Review: At least 15 community colleges offer them, but it's 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.
