Gyro stabilization, the IMU and flight controller are essential for a drone to fly perfectly. Three and six axis gyro stabilization technology provide navigational information to the flight controller and make drones easier and safer to fly. Gyro stabilization technology is one of the components which gives us the smooth flight capabilities allowing us to…

 

Lidar sensors on UAVs capture imagery which only a few years back needed an aircraft, large heavy lidar sensors and a crew to accomplish. Along with lidar sensors mounted on UAVs, sophisticated software can process the lidar images very quickly so effective decisions can be made by stakeholders and relevant parties. The drone lidar sector…

 

Time-Of-Flight camera sensors on drones or ground based have many powerful uses.   These TOF camera sensors can be used for object scanning, indoor navigation, obstacle avoidance, gesture recognition, tracking objects, measuring volumes, reactive altimeters, 3D photography, augmented reality games and much more. This article explains what Time of Flight 3D depth ranging camera sensor…

 

What are drones used for answered in this  easy to read post along with explanations.  First we look at the broad uses for drones in the various sectors. Then we list how drones are been used in specific sectors.  There is also some excellent videos to show you what drones are being used today. The…

 

UAV lidar and photogrammetry imaging applications are increasing rapidly. This is not surprising as using GPS enabled UAVs for aerial surveying is very cost effective in comparison to hiring an aircraft with photogrammetry equipment.   Because UAVs are relatively inexpensive, many organisations will have their own fleet, allowing for rapid surveys over large land areas…

 

The number of drones been used on golf courses to create marketing videos and also to maintain the resort is growing.  Creating professional golf course drone videos is an exceptional way to increase memberships and to maintain the golf course to a high standard.  Potential new members get to view a drone golf course flyover…

 

The market for lidar UAVs and their applications is growing fast and and will continue to increase over the next decade.  In 2015, the figure spent on drones using Lidar was around the USD 300 million. However the lidar market is expected to rise to more than $1 billion by 2020. This is an increase…

 

The 3DR X8 quadcopter range is without doubt top notch. In this X8 quadcopter review, we look at this powerful, reliable and easy to fly drone along with it’s options and uses.  We review both the X8+ for aerial photography, the X8-M for mapping and the Mission Planner software. What the X8 quadcopter gives you…

 

Drone Waypoint GPS Navigation is advanced technology. It is very useful both today and even more so into the future as drones take on new functions and roles in business and other areas. Waypoint GPS Navigation allows a drone to fly on its own with it’s flying destination or points pre-planned and configured into the…
