New Technological Pole of Development for Drones

The market has welcomed drones for both commercial use and amateur enjoyment. Praised for their flight stability, in the face of instability from radio-controlled planes and helicopters, they are controlled with cell phones or tablets. They also have cargo – that is, they can carry photo, video, and thermographic apparatus for commercial use – which is very appealing for both leisurely and professional uses.

Drones can no longer be associated only with military use, control missions, and espionage, although this is still the main reason for such large-scale development in the industry. Light-weight drones are the new area of development.

Amazon Prime Air Drones

The company has asked for permission from American aviation authorities to start testing drones abroad, according to a press release from the company. It is currently seeking engineers and specialists in the United States and the United Kingdom.

DHL Will Test Delivery Drones in Germany

The aircrafts’ journeys will be closely monitored by DHL personnel. Although the company does not have concrete plans to expand the use of these apparatus as delivery vehicles, the success of this test could set an important precedent for making emergency deliveries or deliveries to hard-to-reach places.

Parrot Drones – for Leisure and Entertainment

Parrot presents the AR.Drone 2.0, the new generation of its famous quadcopter which is controlled through Wi-Fi from a smartphone or tablet. This drone has an HD camera with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.

For many people, drones represent the future in many ways; in this context, other entities have joined the autonomous aircraft trend. MIT, for example, created an algorithm that will help these devices determine if they are in favorable conditions to take flight. On the other side of the coin, NASA has shown skepticism around the use of drones as delivery vehicles, mainly because of the obstacles that they may face during their trajectories.

Other companies have released their own prototypes, from the classical aerial drones to aquatic and terrestrial drones. This is such a booming industry because it simplifies very important tasks which, until now, could only be done by teams of military or aviation professionals. Before they were limited to hard-to-reach, remote places or places with poor weather conditions

Now there are more applications and uses of drones. Developers have decreased production costs and have made them ever more powerful with greater autonomy and performance. They have also increased the overall utility of drones, incorporating more accessories and programs. But there are certain details which have yet to be ironed out, such as the regulations and laws regarding the frequency of use and the areas where this kind of technology is forbidden.
