Critical Role – Drones for Agricultural Research in Ohio

(TNS) –– The Springfield Beckley-Municipal Airport now has a new hangar for unmanned aircraft and precision agriculture. The new hangar, the Clark State-Ohio Center for Precision Agriculture, is a part of a $1.2 million project to build 10 new hangars at the airport. It will be used for precision agriculture, which uses technology such as drones, GPS and other sensors to improve farming efficiency. The agriculture and food industry is estimated to contribute $105 billion to the state’s economy, according to the Ohio Farm Bureau. Clark State Community College works…

Flying drones could lead to future jobs

GLADSTONE state school students have put their drone-flying skills to the test at CQUniversity’s Gladstone campus as part of a Gladstone Regional Council project. The program marked the end of a 12-month community resilience project funded by the State Government as part of the CAT C ex-Cyclone Marcia initiative. Gladstone Regional Council strategic community inclusion officer Luis Arroyo said drone use in regional schools meant students do not need to travel to capital cities to access such technology. “The identified need was that regional and remote kids do not have…

Using drones to charge your EV while you’re driving is Amazon’s latest idea

Why it matters to you We’re sure someone will eventually find a solution to banish range anxiety, but we’re not sure this is it. Whether or not Amazon’s R&D team comes up with most of its ideas during Friday night drinks is immaterial. The reality is that, possibly on a Monday morning, it files those ideas with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and, after a period of time, the USPTO grants Amazon the patent. Some of those patents will be forgotten by the Seattle-based company over time…

Why Commercial Use of Drones Just Hit a Major Setback

A critical advisory group on regulating the commercial uses of drones failed to reach a consensus on recommended security safeguards, likely hampering the development of the U.S. market for using larger remote piloted aircraft. The group of about 70 industry and law enforcement experts reported to the Federal Aviation Administration earlier this month that it split over what types of drones should be subject to tracking requirements, the Wall Street Journal reported. The report has not been made public. Companies are already using the unmanned aircraft to perform all sorts…

Thirteen Innovative Ways Humans Use Drones

Humans are limited. We can’t fly, breathe underwater, or survive in high temperatures. So we’ve left much of our scientific endeavors to instruments that extend and collect information beyond our senses, like seismometers that detect waves moving through Earth, lidar instruments that can measure elevation, and sensors that can determine the salinity of the oceans. Increasingly, a new technology is furthering scientists’ ability to capture Earth’s vast, unreachable spaces: drones. These remote-controlled vehicles—sometimes called unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV)—can travel to hazardous places humans try to…

Drone detects heartbeat and breathing rates

Researchers at the University of South Australia have developed drones that can remotely measure heart and breathing rates. Image-processing systems combined with specially created algorithms allow the drones to detect vital signs in several people at once, while they are moving. The drones could be deployed in nursing homes, on hospital wards and in war zones. One expert said it could be “game-changing”. The system detects movements in human faces and necks in order to accurately source heart and breathing rates. In trials, the drones took measurements from a distance…

Make their jaws drop: 6 starter tips for drone marketing

Many online property listings have photos that fail to highlight the positives, often due to limited spatial ability. When trying to sell property with a six-figure value, a drone investment can be extremely worthwhile for real estate agents. Drones provide elevated imagery, at a much more affordable price than hiring a service. Viable drones start at around $500, with even the barest models providing more of an impression than conventional cameras. Real estate agents considering employing drone technology for improved listing imagery should consider the six tips below, to take…

Drones Helping Fight Pollution in a Massive Chinese Factory Town

Drones are regularly used in infrastructure inspections, agricultural monitoring, and safety and rescue operations. And not just in America; this is also the case in the Chinese city of Dongguan, revealingly known as the world’s factory for the amount of manufacturing that happens there. According to the Xinhua news agency, the amount of market entities (read: factories) registered in this city surpassed 900,000 earlier this year. Naturally, this makes it extremely difficult for environmental inspectors to observe all the factories in regards to safety standards and unlawful disposing of chemicals….
