  1. At mRobotics our commitment continues with the entire research, development and integration community and we want to announce that we are making several alliances with interesting companies for the UAV sector and as always to offer you hardware for integration, ready-to-use products and solutions. I want to share the press release that was made through sUASNews FlytBase, Inc. and Mayan Robotics, LLC have announced a partnership to support enterprises on the development of fully autonomous, cost-effective drone automation solutions that leverage open source technologies. As their drone operations move from manual to fully autonomous, businesses are looking for reliable, cost-effective, scalable hardware and software components that can seamlessly integrate into enterprise-grade solutions. The commercial drone industry is driven by regulatory progress and technology advancements – both of which are picking up pace as industries, governments and consumers all start to derive meaningful value from unmanned aerial vehicles. FlytBase, Inc. provides drone agnostic software solutions to automate and scale drone operations. The FlytBase technology platform allows easy deployment of intelligent drone fleets, connected with cloud-based business applications. FlytBase offerings are compatible with major drone hardware platforms (eg. DJI, Ardupilot, PX4) and come with SDKs, simulator and APIs for reliable testing and seamless integration. FlytBase customers range from sectors such as public safety and energy utilities to warehouses, distribution centres, and air cargo facilities. Mayan Robotics LLC specializes in the design and manufacture of essential electronic systems for unmanned vehicles, drones, and UAVs. With a focus on the best known open source and open hardware-based autopilots in the world, Mayan Robotics’ products are utilized by the largest civilian drone manufacturers, public and private aerospace research and development institutes and militaries across the globe. As US-based companies, both FlytBase and Mayan Robotics are excited about the rapid progress made by regulators on enabling drone flights at night, over crowds and beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS). With the ongoing FAA-approved integrated pilot programs, the commercial drone industry is poised to accelerate, driven by fully autonomous solutions that focus on specific use-cases in each sector. These range from outdoor solutions such as aerial inspections of oil & gas pipelines and wind turbines to indoor applications such as warehouse inventory management and mining. The first step towards enterprise drone applications was manually flown UAVs by drone operators and service providers. This has now matured to live drone operations, where a fleet of drones can be remotely managed, with live video feeds available over 4G/5G, and the ability to not only fly drones autonomously but also control the camera gimbal, set waypoints and geofences, share and archive image/video data on the cloud. With the availability of off-the-shelf, cost-effective drones, enterprises can now build a fleet with a minimal upfront investment and rapidly realize business value from aerial inspections, surveys, mapping, surveillance, search-and-rescue ops, etc. FlytBase & Mayan Robotics, together, seek to enable cost-effective commercial drone adoption not only by large corporations but by SMEs, drone operators and sector-specific UAV system integrators as well. Jordi Muñoz, Mayan Robotics Founder, commented “We have strategically located our headquarters in San Diego California, in addition to being the only manufacturer of our kind that designs, manufacturers with globally sourced components, assembles and ships all products from the United States. This allows us to ensure the safety, reliability, and quality that enterprise customers expect from drone hardware. By partnering with FlytBase, whose intelligent automation software perfectly complements our offerings, we can now provide end-to-end drone solutions to drone developers, system integrators, and of course the end-users.” According to Nitin Gupta, FlytBase CEO, “The partnership with mRobotics is designed to help our customers leverage best-in-class, open-source hardware, and software for building enterprise drone automation solutions. As fleets with dozens of autonomous drones get deployed across industrial use-cases, the focus will shift from purely technology to reliability, scalability, and operational integration. We see enterprise drone adoption rapidly moving from proof-of-concept projects and pilot programs to true production deployments – and look forward to this partnership as a means to enable commercial drone automation, at scale.” To learn more about Mayan Robotics’ products, visit https://mrobotics.io/ To learn more about FlytBase’s solutions, visit https://flytbase.com
  2. Hello! My name is Alejandra Rodriguez Vega (ale.rodriguez@asu.edu) and I am a PhD student and research member in the School of Arts, Media, and Engineering at Arizona State University. My current focus is on using design fiction to shape the future design of drones. We have built an online platform http://dreamdrone.org/ where you can create your very own dream drone! All data will be confidential and no personal information will be shared from the participants. Please feel free to share and create your own drone!
  3. During some tests that we carried out autonomously of the mRo navigation systems, while we flew, the wind began to blow very hard and we decided to suspend the mission and land manually because the wind was increasing more and more and the gusts were erratic and unexpected. To end the day, during the final approach the pilot made some low passes to be able to take some pictures of the plane from very close. Once the photos we achieved and we saw the circumstances complicated by the wind and the difficult landing, as fun we challenge the pilot to land with aim. Due to the strong wind we couldn't land at the first attempt, so we had to abort the landing on several occasions repeating the same flight pattern. At some moments during the final approach phase, we switch to “Stabilized” flight mode to check the safety that the mRo autopilot (mRo x2.1-777) brings while corrects the plane banking very quickly. The video quality is not at all the best, because vibrations are shown on the camera and this is because it is mounted on a pan/tilt system. Best Regards Pedro Matabuena
  4. Hi all,Just bought a drone? Already a professional? A drone enthusiast? Regardless, your help is needed!I am looking for drone/RPAS/UAV pilots and enthusiasts to be a part of research I am undertaking into drone flying practices in the UK.What are the aims of the project? I’m exploring what kind of airspace is produced by the interactions between regulation on the one hand and the actual experience of drone flying on the other. What do we know about the invisible politics of airspace? How important is the drone user in shaping their own flying experience? Don’t worry about answering that of course… that’s my job!How could you contribute?I’m looking for two types of contributions, both of which would be completely anonymous in the final research: Flight diary – regardless of how long you’ve been flying drones, I’m looking for pilots (beginner, hobbyist, professional, whatever!) to record a diary of the experience of just a few drone flights over the next 2 months - I'd give plenty of pointers as to the kind of things to talk about, and time commitment is all up to you. This might then be followed up by an interview if you’d be willing. Interview – if you work in the industry, this would be a short (informal) interview discussing your own drone flying habits and interests, along with the wider sentiment of the industry/your company. I am based in London, though you would not be expected to travel – please do get in contact wherever you are as I would love to hear from you.If you are interested or would like further information, please get in contact with me via PM or by email – droneflightresearch@gmail.comThank you for your time!HarryGeography undergraduate student at Oxford with a keen interest in the aviation industry, currently undertaking research for my dissertation.

  7. Hi there, I recently read some articles about UAVs being used for the purpose of structural inspections of offshore oil platforms and the cargo tanks of ships. Having worked operationally in the maritime industry for the last 16 years, in both the offshore energy and merchant sectors, I was wondering if I can help any UAV professionals get started in these markets. There is definitely lot of room for UAV service and product development in the maritime industry, so depending on your needs, I can help you understand the maritime industry better and identify local opportunities wherever you are in the world. If you are interested in developing new UAV related software and hardware, which may engage, entertain or help improve the safety and welfare of sea-goers, I would be happy to provide input and give advise. Just let me know! All the best Thom
  8. Located at the Volcani Center campus in Bet-Dagan, near Tel-Aviv, Agricultural Research Organization (ARO) six institutes are responsible for Plant Sciences, Animal Science, Plant Protection, Soil, Water and Environmental Sciences, Agricultural Engineering, and Postharvest and Food Sciences. ARO also operates four research stations, in various parts of the country, and serves as a testing center for agricultural produce and equipment. Israel's Gene Bank For Agricultural Crops is also located on the ARO Volcani Center campus. While encompassing the full range of agricultural research activities, ARO focuses in particular on arid zone agriculture, enabling Israel - a country short of all the resources required for agriculture - to achieve among the highest levels of agricultural output in the world. As an agricultural research center of international standing, ARO each year attracts a large number of groups from abroad, as well as numerous individual visitors. These include academics, heads of experimental stations, representatives of private companies and public officials. ARO maintains particularly close relations with the various international, regional and national institutes involved in the promotion of good agricultural practice and in the increase of agricultural output, and in particular with the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). At Alpha Unmanned Systems we have always believed that our UAV, the SNIPER, could be useful in improving agriculture. From the Volcani Institute they have proven us correct and by buying two of our drone helicopters they have placed themself at the forefront of agricultural innovation. Equipped with a Flir SC-655 infrared camera plus an on-board processing computer, with a 2 hours autonomous flight and a 2.5 Kg payload; both SNIPER units will support the ARO in their precision agriculture researches, with main topics such as hydric stress, diseases detection or soil nutrients optimization. Also we want to emphasize that we will be pioneers in achieving certification for civilian use of unmanned helicopter. Once delivered, corrected and accepted by the Israeli authority all communication systems and manuals, Alpha gave a training program in Spain, Madrid for two pilots of the ARO and two pilots recognized by the Israel Civil Aviation Authority (ICAA) so they can mentor new pilots in their homeland. After making the handover protocol we travelled to Israel, Tel-Aviv to finish the ATP with our client and perform the first flight tests required to achieve certification by the ICAA. The flights were realized at Tel-Gezer which is a well known area due to it's natural park and past history. All both ATP & ICAA requirements were carried out succesfully.
  9. Hello, My name is Brady Koehler I work with the USDA-ARS in Fargo, ND. I am a lead technician for a sunflower drought stress study. The study will take place over the next 2 years. We have small plots that are about 5 acres and want to get as much information on a plant by plant basis if possible. I am most curious about image processing software that can help me get everything below. I have looked at a few places but there are so many out there. What would you recommend? I also would be curious to which drones you like most. I am currently looking at the DJI Inspire or 3DR Solo combined with an infrared camera, thermo camera, and rgb camera which we can mount and remove. Below is a list of everything we want the drone to do: · Plant height and plant count (RGB camera) · Maturity and flower date · Rogue plants · Hybrid phenology · Evaluate leaf and canopy traits · Canopy height · Canopy temperature to determine CWSI · Measurement of canopy light reflectance for determination of NDVI and CWSI. · Data geo-referencing · Temperature · Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) · Crop Water Stress Index (CWSI) · Leaf Area Index (LAI) Thanks, Brady
