American Robotics’ commercial drone system will be integrated into Ondas’ FullMAX platform, a standards-based networking solution designed to enable enhanced data communications for field operations.
NASA is eager to share the technical details of its accomplishments, unlike the typical commercial robotics venture trying to outpace its competitors.
Perseverance Rover captured audio of the Ingenuity flying on Mars, adding another new dimension to the historic Mars 2020 Mission.
The race was on – safely – for more than 50,000 spectators Saturday at the 147th Kentucky Derby in part thanks to Pittsburgh-based AERAS. The company used its patented charged-electrostatic drone technology to sanitize Churchill Downs against COVID-19. This in part helped allow fans to return to the oldest sporting event in the United States.…
Ingenuity could soon embark on a new operation, exploring how aerial scouting could benefit future exploration of Mars and other worlds.
Exyn drones are now capable of free-flight exploration of highly complex spaces like mines with no necessity for fallback-ready human operators. This capability opens up new markets including search and rescue operations.
Ingenuity flew faster and farther than any tests that took place here on Earth.
Ingenuity Helicopter became the first aircraft to make a powered, controlled flight on another planet.
Update will modify the process by which two flight controllers boot up, allowing the hardware and software to safely transition to the flight state.
During a high-speed test of the rotors, the command sequence controlling the test ended early due to a “watchdog” timer expiration.
NASA is one step closer to achieving the first flight on another planet as the Ingenuity Helicopter touched down on Mars over the weekend.
NASA is targeting no earlier than April 8 for the launch of Ingenuity on Mars . But before that happens, it must hit a series of milestones.
Many parcel delivery drones of the future are expected to handle packages weighing five pounds or less, a restriction that would allow small, standardized UAVs to handle a large percentage of the deliveries now done by ground vehicles. But will that relegate heavier packages to slower delivery by conventional trucks and vans? A research team…
New soft actuator can flap nearly 500 times per second, giving drones insect-like resilience.
Skydio, a Calif.-based drone developer, has become the robotics industry’s newest unicorn after closing a $170 million Series D funding round. This brings Skydio’s total funding to date to more than $340 million. Skydio is the first U.S. drone maker to be valued at more than $1 billion. Skydio’s drones are best known for their…
Balaram described what it took to develop the helicopter and what to expect on Mars.
Ingenuity’s four carbon-fiber blades spin in opposite directions at around 2,400 rpm – many times faster than a helicopter on Earth.
Enterprise drone data company DroneDeploy raised $50 million in Series E financing. The round was led by existing investors Energize Ventures and AirTree, with participation from Bessemer, Scale, Emergence, Angelpad, Uncork and Frontline Ventures. This funding brings DroneDeploy’s total fundraising to date to $142 million. The investment will be used to expand the company’s products…
