Výběr z textu článku:
"Aeryon SkyRanger je bezpilotní prostředek ověřený praxí záchranářů i na bojišti. Letos v květnu například pomáhal při tornádu v Oklahomě. Shromažďoval videa řádění tornáda, v reálném čase je přenášel, a přispěl tak rychlému a bezpečnému řešení krizové situace.
- Ve světě je pravidelně využíván v ostrém nasazení při zásazích bezpečnostních a záchranných složek, ale i pro komerční účely. Byl vyvinut týmem kanadských specialistů s dlouhodobou praxí tak, aby dokázal plnit svou funkci i ve velmi náročných klimatických a povětrnostních podmínkách, čímž se od konkurenčních dronů často velmi výrazně liší.
Mimořádná odolnost
SkyRanger je navržen tak, aby zachoval svou funkčnost i za velmi náročných klimatických a povětrnostních podmínek. Velmi důležitým parametrem je u dronů výdrž baterie – v případě SkyRangeru výrobce garantuje fungování po dobu až 50 minut s plným zatížením, a to při teplotách v rozmezí –30 až +50 °C. Přístroj dokáže létat při větru 65 km/hod v nárazech dokonce až 90 km/hod, přitom většina konkurence má velké problémy už při větru kolem 30–40 km/hod, což je podle statistik běžná hodnota v našich klimatických podmínkách.
Jednoduché intuitivní ovládání, snadná manipulace a transport......".
Dron Aeryon SkyRanger v akci
"Přístup společnosti Aeryon ke správě obsahu je zcela jedinečný. Ne všechny dronem pořízené snímky jsou stejně důležité, a proto se nový Media Management zaměřuje především na prioritizaci – stanovení důležitosti, respektive urgentnosti sbíraných obrazových dat. „Jako příklad lze uvést situaci, kdy jednotky rychlého nasazení vyžadují okamžité předání nějaké informace – jedné fotografie, která má pomoci k identifikaci podezřelého či poznávací značky,“vysvětluje Andrej Hronec ze společnosti Audiopro, která značku Aeryon v České republice zastupuje. „Na druhém konci spektra uplatnění této služby jsou například pátrací a záchranné akce – operace s delším časovým horizontem, které ovšem pracují s vyšším objemem dat.“
Media Management platformy AeryonLive nabízí pro podobné situace tři různé pracovní postupy, jejichž smyslem je poskytování a správa snímků získaných během různých operací bezpilotních prostředků......"

"When DJI announced the Spark back in May last year, we thought the move cemented the Chinese manufacturer as the leader in every price bracket. But we were probably too hasty with that assumption. There are countless drones and manufacturers which come into the ‘toy’ category and cost much less than the $500 Spark. Bad news for them today though, as DJI has just launched its very own budget drone: The $99 Tello.
DJI’s $99 obstacle avoiding drone
At least that’s the headline. In fact, the drone has been developed and manufactured by Shenzhen startup Ryze Tech. It will be sold on the DJI website and looks uncannily like a smaller brother of the Spark. The Tello has also been created with the help of DJI and another industry giant, Intel, using technology from both to make this a budget drone capable of much more than its low-budget competitors.
Introducing the DJI Tello
We’re usually very wary of drones that cost under $100. You tend to get what you pay for in this industry, after all. But DJI and Intel don’t get involved with products unless they know it will make an impact, so it’s worth taking a closer look at Tello.

Výběr z textu článku:
"Drones are going to see significant new capabilities in 2018. The use of multiple high-functioning cameras as well as upgraded Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) will enhance navigational acumen far beyond that of today’s drone models. This, combined with ultra-fast charging and longer-lasting batteries, means the drones of 2018 will have far greater range and performance flexibility.
Expect to see more and more sectors incorporating drones into their operations this year as a result. Here are three areas that should be especially interesting to watch:
1. Drone-enabled big data
"Drones offer a vast, bird’s eye view for collecting data, which can contribute enormously to diverse areas such as weather, traffic flow, and even disaster forecasting. A fleet of drones can collect and analyze road conditions in real-time, amassing data that can help alleviate gridlock. And, unlike traffic cameras, drones have the flexibility to observe from numerous angles and can be sent swiftly to flashpoints, making them ideal for monitoring our roadways......
2. Unmanned flying taxis
"It won’t quite be the Jetsons, but in 2018, several companies will be competing to bring us the flying car/drone, also known as the AAV (Autonomous Aerial Vehicle). The concept first emerged with proof of concept prototypes from major players such as Ehang, whose eco-friendly AAVs aim to serving as autonomous personal transportation devices. The company has raised over $50 million in funding.
- Another competitor is Volocopter a German company aiming to help cities resolve growing mobility issues. Featuring a two-seated drone with 18 rotors, Volocopter received $30 million in funding from Daimler and was also chosen to lead Dubai’s revolutionary aerial shuttle service, with testing already taking place.......
3. Home surveillance via drone
"Home security cameras could soon become a thing of the past with the rise of autonomous, multi-sensor drones. These drones will self-activate upon detecting noise or suspicious movement and fly inside or around a property until the threat is found and thwarted – with the homeowner watching from a safe distance. Drones are already used for surveillance in large industrial facilities, but drone-based home surveillance systems will likely take wing in 2018.......
- Technologies such as AI, computer vision, and energy storage will also continue to develop exponentially in 2018."

DJI Tello - The smartest toy drone you’ll ever fly

By Kevin Lee 
Článek najdete na adrese:http://www.techradar.com/reviews/dji-tello
"OUR EARLY VERDICT
Even from our brief time with the DJI Tello, we can tell its going to be one of the best drones of 2018 with a ton of smarts and surprisingly ample performance for its small size.
FOR
• Incredibly affordable and fun
• Phone-based POV mode
• Motion-controlled flying still makes you feel like a Jedi
AGAINST
• Light enough to be carried away by a breeze
• Not designed to be flown outside
There’s never a shortage of drones at CES 2018 these days, but if you look past all the hexacopter and quadcoptors designed for extreme performance, DJI unveiled something uniquely simple with the DJI Tello. Unlike the company’s previous products, the $99 (£99, AU$169) DJI Tello is more of a tiny flying toy to help kids and starting filers into the air.
On top of that, the Tello is bringing some unique features not seen on a DJI drone before including mid-air flips, livestreaming and the ability to program your airframe. Furthermore, the drone is packing some smart tech courtesy of Intel to make it safe to fly safely and easily indoors.......
DJI is helping provide flight stabilization technology and selling the tiny flier under its brand and on its online store........
Early verdict
It’s easy to write off the Tello as a $99 (£99, AU$169) toy drone, but it brings some serious performance to the world of tiny drones. With 13-minutes of flight time and all the motion based controls, it’s a much more accessible than just buying another cheap toy drone you’ll crash land within minutes of your first flight.
The Tello isn’t just DJI’s smallest and cheapest drone, it’s also their most fun flier yet. .....".

"Intel has long been proud of its drone-based light shows — including airing a (pre-taped) halftime show at the last Super Bowl. Today at its CES keynote, the company introduced a new version of those drones, called “Shooting Star Mini.” The innovation here? They’re tiny and totally safe to fly indoors, above the heads of the audience. They are interesting because they can locate themselves in space without the need for GPS.
- Intel capped its keynote with a light show that was impressive (at least if you were in the arena to get the full effect of the tiny drones flying in 3D space). The song they danced to was Kygo’s “Stargazing,” of course.
- Want to buy one? Sorry, you can’t. “This is not the type of drone you can buy in the store,” says CEO Brian Krzanich. Even though these little drones seem like they might be the perfect in-house drone toy, that’s not what Intel intends for them. Instead, they’re just here for these kinds of light shows. You preprogram a routine into the system and then set a swarm of them out into the air rather than control each individual one directly. The Shooting Star Mini drones then go out and follow the choreography. Intel says a single pilot can fly up to 100 of them at once.
- We don’t know if Intel intends to allow people go out and purchase 100 of these things anytime soon, but we do know that they’re likely to be another mainstay in its presentations going forward......".

"Professional interest in drones began to solidify in 2017. Part 107 landed the year before and it jumpstarted a wave of industry confidence that led commercial operators and business owners to produce some of the most exciting UAV initiatives since the drone revolution began. The future looks bright for 2018, but don’t expect the ground to stand still. We expect a lot of big changes in 2018 and here are just a few of them:
- Near real-time flight approvals
The national beta test of LAANC (the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability), will foster more innovations and commercial flights with near real-time, automatic approval to fly in controlled airspace below approved altitudes. If the beta test is successful in the 10 test regions, a full rollout will eliminate a point of anxiety for legitimate commercial pilots seeking to permission to fly in controlled airspace.
- Increased use in public safety and disaster relief
Part 107 cleared the road for emergency services, law enforcement, and fire departments to start investing seriously in drone programs in 2017. This trend is bound to continue as clear use cases have been established where drones can save and protect lives or rapidly assess accident and crime scenes. Notably, the Menlo Park Fire District has worked with both DJI and Intel on initiatives to train firemen in the use of drones and build hardware suited for the unique requirements of firefighting. In the arena of disaster and emergency response, drones proved their utility in the Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria relief efforts. 2017 showed drones power to save lives, and hopefully will save more in 2018.......".

"In recent years, engineers have worked to shrink drone technology, building flying prototypes that are the size of a bumblebee and loaded with even tinier sensors and cameras. Thus far, they have managed to miniaturize almost every part of a drone, except for the brains of the entire operation — the computer chip.
- Standard computer chips for quadcoptors and other similarly sized drones process an enormous amount of streaming data from cameras and sensors, and interpret that data on the fly to autonomously direct a drone’s pitch, speed, and trajectory. To do so, these computers use between 10 and 30 watts of power, supplied by batteries that would weigh down a much smaller, bee-sized drone.
- Now, engineers at MIT have taken a first step in designing a computer chip that uses a fraction of the power of larger drone computers and is tailored for a drone as small as a bottlecap. They will present a new methodology and design, which they call “Navion,” at the Robotics: Science and Systems conference, held this week at MIT.
- The team, led by Sertac Karaman, the Class of 1948 Career Development Associate Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT, and Vivienne Sze, an associate professor in MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, developed a low-power algorithm, in tandem with pared-down hardware, to create a specialized computer chip."

I v tomto směru se za poslední desetiletí mnohé změnilo. Metoda leteckého snímkování už dnes dovoluje pořídit nejen klasické ortofotomapy (fotografie zemského povrchu umístěné do souřadnicového systému), ale například také infračervené snímky, z nichž lze vytvořit třeba specializované mapy vegetace. Díky lehce odlišnému složeni půdy mají totiž stromy rostoucí na skrytých ruinách jinou barvu v infraspektru než okolní zeleň.

Alternativou k leteckému snímkováni se v poslední době stávají i drony. které jsou oproti letadlům podstatné flexibilnější a především levnější. Uplatňují se hlavně při archeologických záchranných pracích nebo při zkoumání větších celků...."

"Intel did not disappoint the audience at CES 2018. ...But for the drone industry, there was a clear highlight: the first ever North American demonstration of the Volocopter. The Volocopter is the German-based passenger drone that has made history as the world’s first drone taxi, implemented in Dubai last summer. Powered by Intel technology, the Volocopter Is “the first fully electric, vertical take-off and landing aircraft, designed for passenger transport,” says Intel...... “ The Intel flight control technology analyzes environmental data with highly redundant sensors and is able to compensate for certain flight malfunctions. It can also accommodate for certain wind gusts and shifts in the center of gravity to help stabilize the position of the aircraft.”
"Seeing the aircraft lift on on stage brought greater realism to the reports that Volocopter has flown over 400 times in Germany and overseas – and with Dubai’s drone taxi project to serve as proof of concept, the idea no longer seems beyond the realm of possibility."
