Technology Breakthrough with SkyOne Drone

SkyX Ltd. recently arrived to share details about its unique industrial drone technology designs. The company’s SkyOne drones take off and land like a helicopter, but fly more like an airplane, with a range of up to 65 miles per charge. For drone industry nerds, this means they have both VTOL and fixed-wing elements.

Cameras and sensors on board enable SkyOne drones to gather data about infrastructure below and send it back to cloud-based applications for analysis. The drones also launch from and land on proprietary charging stations, called xStations, which close a kind of shell over the UAVs when they are not moving, protecting them from theft. The charging stations do not remove and replace the batteries within the drones, but charge them directly, then send the drones on their way.

technology SkyX Ltd

Other companies land their unmanned aerial vehicles on charging stations where their batteries are swapped out for fresh ones. Positioning charging stations along a route can give drones a virtually unlimited range. It’s a design idea we should expect to see until battery tech and other power systems advance significantly.

SkyX founder and CEO Didi Horn spent his earlier career flying for the Israel Air Force. Horn stated, “I always knew I wanted to develop something around drones and aviation for commercial use when I got out. But in consumer there were already great products. There was nothing great for long-range, but that’s where I knew there would be demand. There are millions of kilometers of oil and gas pipelines already built in the world today and they are all at risk of leaks, or terror attacks, you name it.”

The technology company is first focusing on the energy industry, as its drones and charging stations can be configured to cover long distances between pumping stations along oil and gas pipelines. The drones also can be used to cover acres of solar panels installed on vast farms, or wind turbines installed along roads, even in remote areas, Horn explained. The xStations can plug into a typical electric outlet. Or they can be connected to solar panels or other freestanding generators, he noted.

Though SkyX did not have permission to disclose the names of its earliest customers, it is working with several energy companies on safety tests and pilot projects today in the Americas, Horn said. The drones fly autonomously, and the company also has to secure permission in different markets to fly beyond the line of sight of human observers or pilots on the ground.

Drone Technology: Racing Drone That Reaches 70 Mph

Drone racing technology is becoming more and more popular with teams, television networks, and sponsors getting involved in on this developing scene. There’s a professional drone racing league, live streaming, and even drone-racing simulators. Vendetta, team BlackSheep’s drone kit, is a first-person-view drone that might be one of the finest options.

This drone is unlike most consumer-grade drones for two reasons. The first reason; that it has a top speed of almost 70 mph. The second reason; it can be operated with a headset that basically gives you a bird’s-eye view of the world above, seen through the eyes of Vendetta’s forward and bottom-facing cameras. A first-person view controller exists for the Vendetta (costing almost $250), turning it into a FPV drone where you will see whatever the drone sees during your high-speed flight. This option is recommended for the full drone pilot experience.

Flying drones in NYC is illegal, but if you have watched any famous vlogger from the city use drones in their videos, they have most likely done it regardless. However, the Vendetta is no ordinary drone. Pilots in leagues fly up to 70 mph. It is suggested to practice in an open space at first. After repairing from previous test flights, most of the battery life was spent flying 50 feet up and then landing quickly just moments after. TBS praised the Vendetta for being exceedingly durable due to a carbon fiber body, however, the antennae and propellers are rather sensitive. They broke after a several hard landings.

For its professional races, Team BlackSheep creates custom flying profiles for its drone pilots, as well as a kit that includes tools, a backpack, battery charger, and spare blades. By default, however, TBS includes three flight modes: vertical, acrobatic, and horizontal. Surveying the area in vertical mode, several flips in acrobatic mode, and seeing a dog chase after the drone in horizontal mode was all the information needed to know that the Vendetta was a well-built machine.

There have been plans about Amazon’s drone delivery since 2013. Patent filings from Amazon that were circulated by Zoe Leavitt of CB Insights, reveal more detail about how the company could make drone deliveries work through “airborne fulfillment centers.” That would be a warehouse in a zeppelin.

The AFCs (airborne fulfillment centers), would be furnished with a certain amount of inventory and positioned near a location where Amazon anticipates demand for certain items will soon increase. Drones could be housed at the AFCs and sent down to make a scheduled delivery.

An example cited in the filing was around a sporting event. If there is a popular game happening down below, Amazon’s AFCs above could be loaded up with snacks ordered by the sports fanatics. The AFCs could be flown near a stadium to drop off audio or outdoor display advertising close to the event.

The patent reflects a complex network of systems to aid the delivery by air. Besides the airborne fulfillment the company anticipates larger shuttles that could carry people and supplies to the AFCs or back to the ground. Using a bigger shuttle to bring the drones up to the AFC would allow Amazon to reserve power for making deliveries.

Naturally, these elements would be connected to an inventory management system run by people in the air or on the ground. This filing reveals that the drones and shuttles could function together in a network. They would relay data back and forth about routing, wind speed, and weather. We reached out to Amazon to learn more about their progress on this concept, and whether or not they have a date for when they might launch their first AFC.

Will this replace the local delivery services? Only time will tell.

Xiaomi, a Chinese smartphone maker, officially unveiled its first drone Wednesday, after teasing the product for a week. The company expects the low price of the drone to bring about serious competition to the industry. Like other Xiaomi products, the company did not manufacture or engineer the Mi Drone. It worked with China-based Flymi, which creates products for various companies. Xiaomi is using a guerrilla marketing approach, by putting a considerable brand and funds behind the drone; selling it throughs its channels, and the mi.com online store.

The Xiaomi drone comes at a lower price than its competitors, which is not surprising, as Xiaomi has a reputation for selling high quality devices at a fraction of the price. The Mi Drone is priced at 2499 CNY (or $380 USD) for the entry-level device. This device comes with a 1080p camera, vs the 2999 CNY (or $450 USD) 4K camera. The DJI drone, Xiaomi’s main competition, goes for around $850 USD for 4K, a somewhat average price for the product.

The company says that the cheaper Mi Drone will be crowdfunded inside the Mi Home app, starting on May 26th. The 4K drone will be available for early testing at the end of July. The company has not released when or whether the product will be sold outside of China. The drone can fly for 27 minutes per charge, using a 5,100 man battery at a 3km range to power itself. Comparatively, that is about 5 minutes more than DJI drones. The Mi Drone also includes a 360-degree camera shooting 4K, powered by a handheld remote, which has the option of pairing with a smartphone to enhance the livefeed mode.

One issue the company has already run into is tracking and keeping control of the drones, especially for new owners. The Mi Drone can create a virtual fence so that if it goes beyond the 3km range, it will automatically fly back to the destination it took off from. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun said at the unveiling that the drone is not just for rich kids. Xiaomi wants to use its profile and low price to help democratize technology in China and enable everyone to have a chance to get their hands on the device.

Wearing black headsets with tentacle-like sensors stretched over their foreheads, the competitors stare at cubes floating on computer screens as their small white drones prepare for takeoff..the next generation of the tech sector.

“Three, two, one … GO!” the announcer hollers, and as the racers fix their thoughts on pushing the cubes, the drones suddenly whir, rise and buzz through the air.

A competition – billed as “the world’s first drone race involving a brain-controlled interface” included 16 pilots that used pure willpower to navigate drones through a 10-yard dash over an indoor basketball court at the University of Florida. In A report by The Associated Press organizers hoped to make an annual inter-collegiate spectacle, including advancements in thing like aerial moves, challenges and a trophy that puts the brain on a pedestal.

“BCI was a technology that was geared specifically for medical purposes, and in order to expand this to the general public, we actually have to embrace these consumer brand devices and push them to the limit.”

Scientists have been able to identify brainwaves for more than a century, and mind-controlled technology already is helping paralyzed people move limbs or robotic prosthetic. How does the technology deliver an abstract thought through the digital receptacles and into the real world?

Each EEG headset is calibrated to pinpoint the electrical activity associated with certain thoughts in each wearer’s brain. For example, something like a recording where neurons fire when the wearer imagines pushing a chair across the floor.

Programmers create the code to translate these “Imaginary motion” signals into commands that computers push through to the drones. Professor Juan Gilbert, whose computer science students organized the race, is opening the doors to other universities to put together brain-drone racing teams for 2017. He’s creating interest in a technology whose opportunity seems held back only by the imagination.

“One day you could wear a brain-controlled interface device like you wear a watch, to interact with things around you,” Gilbert said.

An Ohio man using only his thoughts, recently was able to move his paralyzed hand simply based on a chip implanted in his brain. The idea of collegiate brain-drone races has built intrigue for people like Dr. Bin He, a biomedical engineer at the University of Minnesota. He first demonstrated a mind-controlled drone in public in 2013.

“We are getting closer and closer to broad application.” But as the technology moves toward wider adoption, ethical, legal and privacy questions remain unresolved.

The U.S. Defense Department – which uses drones to kill suspected terrorists in the Middle East from vast distances – is looking for military brain-control applications. A 2014 Defense grant supports the Unmanned Systems Laboratory at the University of Texas, San Antonio, where researchers have developed a system enabling a single person with no prior training to fly multiple drones simultaneously through mind control.

In this system, instead of the pilot thinking certain thoughts to move the drones, she looks at a screen with flickering signals, triggering brain activity that translates into specific movements. What tech stocks are about to take advantage of this over the next 5 years.

New Technology: Robot Pizza Delivery?

The pizza company joked about driverless delivery robot technology back in 2015. The food delivery robots are coming! Remember the “Domi-No-Driver” campaign? Domino’s has joined hands with Starship Technologies to begin using its “personal delivery devices” this summer in Hamburg, Germany. If all goes well there, Domino’s and Starship intend to bring robot pizza delivery to the Netherlands as well.

technology robot

Starship’s devices have the look of a self-driving food cart, rather than some science fiction humanoid. They travel on six wheels at an average speed of 4 miles per hour, and can carry just over 40 pounds. In Hamburg, the robots will deliver pizzas within a one-mile radius.

Starship is facing significant competition in the prospering market for “professional service robotics.” Competitors range from fellow startups like Marble to established players like Boston Dynamics. The International Federation for Robotics (IFR) forecasts that between 2016 and 2019, logistics businesses will have begun using at least 175,000 robots to provide their services. That compares to UPS’ global fleet of around 100,000 trucks today.

Launched by Skype co-founders Ahti Heinla and Janus Friis in 2014, Starship Technologies also recently inked food delivery partnerships with DoorDash and Postmates in the US. But Domino’s has yet to offer pizza delivery by robot here. Many retailers and restaurants are waiting to see how robot delivery tech shapes up, but also how the rules for using these devices are set in the US market. Virginia, and as of this week Idaho, allow delivery by robot today. Other states and federal US laws are still to be determined..

Domestically, Domino’s has offered other tech-enabled and entertaining ways to buy a pie, including by Tweeting a pizza emoji to @dominos, or requesting delivery from drivers of the Domino’s DXP “ultimate pizza delivery vehicle,” a modified Chevy Spark. In New Zealand, Domino’s has also begun delivery by drones in a partnership with Flirtey.

Indeed, tech has become an international marketing gimmick for Domino’s. But learning what works, and doesn’t, in the next wave of logistics tech could spell serious cost savings, and not just near-term buzz, for any major restaurant chain that delivers. After all, robots may need maintenance, but they don’t call in sick unexpectedly or hop between employers like the people they could displace.

Piaggio Technology – A Robot That Carries Your Stuff And Follows You

Piaggio, the Italian company that makes Vespa scooters revealed its newest technology creation this week; a personal delivery device or “cargo robot,” called the Gita. The technology and the robot were designed by a new “startup” within the broader Piaggio group of brands, called Piaggio Fast Forward, in Boston. Gita resembles an exercise ball with tires in a meridian position, and multiple cameras embedded within its shell. It can follow a person, or roll autonomously in an environment it has already mapped. At 26 inches tall, the Gita can carry up to 40 pounds at a time and has a maximum speed of 22 miles per hour, so it can keep up with a person on foot or riding a bike. It can run for about 8 hours of continuous use, the company said.

technology

Piaggio Fast Forward’s Chief Creative Officer Greg Lynn stated, “We come from a world of lightweight, scooters, two and three-wheeled cycles, and mini trucks. Everything we do is lightweight and made for highly congested cities, like Bangkok or Hanoi, where traffic is a real issue We wanted to extend people’s movement and encourage them to move more freely and easily, even in congested environments.” Piaggio Fast Forward has taken a different approach to working around traffic on the ground than other startups in this space, such as the delivery drone makers Flirtey and Zipline or Starship Technologies, which makes semi-autonomous personal delivery robots. The Gita has to follow a human around to learn how to navigate around a new environment. Its design permits it to go wherever a person in a wheelchair could go, including grocery stores, ramps, and elevators.

Sasha Hoffman, Piaggio Fast Forward Chief Operating Officer, noted that the follow-mode can alleviate some problems faced by autonomous vehicles. She stated, “A machine can be intelligent, but isn’t as smart as a human today. Driving down the street and deciding to swerve to avoid hitting a bicyclist or a dog on the road, for example, people make ethical decisions all the time that a self driving car can’t make. If a device is following a person then that person has the lead, and powers the most important decisions around the robot’s movement.”

Hoffman also said running Gita units indoors and out with select partners will help the company amongst a database of location information that isn’t available through resources like Google Maps today. It could lead to better navigation tools to help people get around places like campus buildings, airports, and parking lots. These are also locations where the Gita could alleviate workers and visitors from carrying a heavy load, whether that’s suitcases or tools. If the robot isn’t allowed indoors, Piaggio created the Gita with the ability to park outside safely. It has a locking bay that requires a fingerprint scan and a code to open it, as well as to start the robot. “Gita is also covered with cameras, and sensors and always knows where it is. It’d be the dumbest thing in the world to try to steal or break into,” he stated. Piaggio Fast Forward soon plans to run pilot tests with Gita on different college campuses and in towns in the U.S. It envisions the Gita assisting maintenance, gardening and custodial workers, and others who must tote heavy things around to get their jobs done.

Airbus Should Have Self-Flying Technology Vehicle Prototype This Year

Airbus CEO Tom Enders announced the company aims to roll out a prototype self-flying technology for small urban transport made for single-passenger travel by the end of this year. Airbus has been advancing its self-governing vertical take-off and landing concept through Project Vahana, an internal project designed to research viability and refine a model for urban air transport. Enders told the DLD tech conference in Munich that Airbus is taking the project “very seriously.” Airborne’s transit for goods and individual passengers would be highly beneficial for alleviating urban congestion, and redefining how urban planners think about city designs.

technology

Vahana plans to have a workable production urban aircraft for short trips ready by 2021, and so actual model tests by the end of 2017. The company previously said it was wishing to field a full-scale model sometime in 2017. It seems like Enders is still dedicated to keeping his company to that deadline. The self-flying vehicle will most likely use a 4 rotor design with variable positioning possible to aid with vertical take off, and then shift to push the vehicle forward in the air. The architecture process is taking into account what’s most economical, given requirements like an electric motor, which Airbus is focusing on so that a fleet of the vehicles will not have a worse impact on the environment than ground-based transportation in terms of adding to air pollution.

Flying cars might seem outrageous but helicopter-creator Airbus thinks that they would be ignoring the category at their peril, given the advance of technology that can help make it possible. If Airbus can pull off the model, the biggest hurdle might be regulation. Transporting people by drone is still a big legal concern in metropolitan areas. It will be difficult to prove its safety to municipal regulators.
