A2Z Drone Delivery, LLC, developer of a patented tethered freefall drone delivery mechanism, today announced the launch of its RDSX commercial delivery UAV.
Southwest Research Institute received an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract valued at up to $34 million over five years to support the US.
A novel new drone system fitted with an array of sensors could assess methane emissions in local areas allowing researchers to zoom in on hotspots for greenhouse gas emissions.
In a first of its kind attempt, an autonomous flying quadrotor has outperformed two human pilots in a drone race. The achievement is based on a new algorithm developed by researchers from the University of Zurich (UZH).
"The project's main objective is to integrate a certain degree of automation, so that an operator can control a small fleet of up to 10 drones from a single ground station," says Luis E. Moreno, LABYRINTH's coordinator and researcher at the UC3M's Robotics Lab.
Drones keep getting smaller and smaller, while their potential applications keep getting bigger and bigger.
The bad odors produced by the Waste Water Treatment Plants, known as WWTPs, have become a growing concern in the cities and towns that host these facilities and are considered by citizens to be the main cause of the perception of pollution, along with the dust and noise.
In a disaster, time is of the essence when searching for potential victims who may be difficult to find.
Using drones and artificial intelligence to monitor large colonies of seabirds can be as effective as traditional on-the-ground methods, while reducing costs, labor and the risk of human error, a new study finds.
The pros make it look easy, but making a movie with a drone can be anything but.
