Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Applied Physics Laboratory are attempting to enhance the navigational algorithms of autonomous robotic swarms using discoveries related to dynamic replanning — the cognitive mechanism that allows animals to navigate while on the move.
The recent rescue of a fisherman stranded on rocks in Gold Coast Seaway was delayed by a drone. Helicopter rescuers had to wait for the drone to leave the skies before the injured fisherman could be winched to safety following a boat accident
New capabilities include the automatic creation of roof dimension data that can be directly processed in Xactware’s Xactimate solution to support more rapid repair estimation. In addition, enhancements to the Kespry iPad inspection app now enable the full power of the Kespry cloud to be used on-site within minutes of a drone inspection flight
This poor family got together for a reunion and decided to use a drone to capture the large group from the above.Unfortunately the person operating it had it fly back for a wide shot and then back in for a tighter shot.

Telecoms giant AT&T has partnered with San Francisco counter-drone startup Dedrone to develop a detection solution to protect military bases and other sensitive locations from what they describe as malicious drones.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has given nine companies permission to fly in controlled airspace, such as airports, as part of its Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) initiative. One of those nine companies is DJI, along with Aeronyde, Airbus, AiRXOS, Altitude Angel, Converge, KittyHawk, UASidekick and Unifly. It doesn't mean operators can fly those brands' drones over airports anytime they want, though,it only means that professional drone pilots can now get authorization to enter controlled airspace in near-real time instead of waiting for months.
Drones are becoming a big danger for pilots when they are in the air. On Monday, Valley Children's hospital staff saw a drone flying on hospital property. Hospital staff said it is a problem because emergency helicopters are flying in and out of the facility.
A tethered drone built by Elistair was used by the French authorities to ensure continuous aerial surveillance of one of the biggest international sports competitions, The Ryder Cup 2018 held in Paris from September 25 to September 30.
The UAV Challenge 2018 is over and we have had a spectacular week in Dalby. Eleven teams flew in the Medical Express Challenge. Their mission was to retrieve a blood sample from Outback Joe at his farm and in doing that they had to land within 10m of a visual target.
The report offers a detailed Outlook and future prospects of Global Drone Identification Systems Market evaluates various aspects that determine the growth as well as the volume of the market. Additionally, it presents a determined business outlook of the market along with the summary of some of the leading market players.
As personal drones continue to soar in popularity, the Jandakot Airport Community Aviation Consulting Group (JACACG) is warning users to inform themselves on local restricted areas and the dangers of flying drones near airports.
Drones have emerged one of the most dynamic and promising sectors over the past few years. The overall industry sales is expected to hit 3 Mn units by the end of 2018, creating immense opportunities for adjacent markets such as drone simulator software.
While DJI have done a great job of making the controls simple and getting the drone into the air fairly straightforward, there are aspects to drone ownership that hadn’t immediately occurred to me. Naturally, each drone model has unique features such as size, whether it has longer or shorter battery life or particular flight modes but there are some experiences that I think are more or less universal.
