Il futuro dei prodotti FPV: A Complete Insight

13 Jul | by Flysight | , Newsroom

FPV stands for "Fisrt Person View": a camera is attached to the front of the multi-rotos (or plane or flying wing, etc.) and the video is watched later.

This set of aircraft or wings equipped with telecamera nascosta is called drone.

Drones interfere in our daily lives! Recreational or professional use drones, these small unmanned aircraft are no longer exclusively reserved for military purposes. What about regulation? Risks incurred on our populations? Will the massive arrival of these small machines change the urban landscape?

The drone market is becoming more democratic

"An Aircraft Traveling Without Anyone On Board": Used initially by the military for transportation or espionage purposes, these flying machines, of varying size and weight, are now entering our daily lives.

We meet recreational drones, equipped with cameras to film from above our best moments, competition drones, professional drones to practice surveys, inspect inaccessible areas, to transport, deliver, communicate ... drones are all over. They are tools of work, vector of communication or distribution for the companies. Sector in full growth, boosted by the popularization of technologies; selling prices decrease. Drones are widely available to businesses and the general public.

But this economic craze is not without consequences on the whole sector. The risks of an accident and the possibility of using a drone for malicious purposes or espionage make the authorities react: changes in the regulations in force, drone pilot training, specific professional insurance ... The drone is about to transform our economic, social and regulatory landscape!

Acquire a recreational drone

On the internet, you can buy your little recreational drone from 40 euros. Most are equipped with a "nanny cam" camera that will delight fans of Go Pro.

If everyone can now own a drone (sold in the categories "children" from 14 years), the conditions of use of the machine are increasingly strict, regulated by the Directorate General of Aviation Civil (DGAC), under the leadership of the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy.

British Dictionary definition for nanny cam

Nanny cam is a camera that transmits images to a computer, used to monitor children in another location

Drone + camera: pay attention to the law!

For security reasons, no government would like to see flying over its territory by a drone, even if it is of the child category.

The conditions of use of this new toy become drastic. It would not be a question of confusing our children to a spy or to make them suspect of notorious terrorist, by making fly their drone in pernicious places.

Actually, flying a drone equipped with a spy camera is "of a particular activity" within the meaning of the law, requiring a declaration from government, the holding of a professional aviation insurance, an aeronautical diploma , of a training of telepilote of civil drone, the update of a logbook, etc.

On the other hand, if you use a small flying machine not equipped with a camera, you will not be considered as pilot of a drone strictly speaking, but of a simple model aircraft (drones being defined as "aircraft"). Exit the specific regulations, but there remains the risk of accident in case of falling of the machine on people ... Your responsibility will be engaged!

Regulations on the use of drones

Authorization to fly a drone does not support the same regulations depending on the size of the craft or the conditions of the flight. A sight operation within a 100 m radius outside the populated area requires only a theoretical pilot license certificate. Specific missions of a professional nature (photographic surveys, aerial surveillance activity, etc.), without direct sight, require a full plane, helicopter or glider license in addition to justifying 100 hours of practice. as captain and 20 hours of piloting on the drone that will be used next.

Activities related to the drone market

The resale of privately-owned UAVs could become the trendiest business in the near future, bringing with it several related business lines.

Air training centers are beginning to specialize in telpher drone training. The professional federation of the civilian drone is in the process of developing a practical exam, supervised by the regulation office. Insurance companies are reviewing their copy and strengthening their air protection benefits.

The regulation office is just starting to regulate the civil drone market, but it has not finished its floor. For now, our cities can not yet accommodate aircraft in their skies, people's safety requires, but several companies are starting to claim the use of drones to communicate or to deliver their products, in parks, beaches ... Soon in the neighborhoods or directly at home, on the terraces of individuals? Let's bet that soon drones will invade our skies, for congestion as invasive in the air as on earth.

A response to the waste of our oceans "is already in our hands," Robert Garbett, CEO of Drone Major Group, told Stevie Knight.

There are challenges that have so far avoided a detailed analysis: "How much plastic is there in the ocean? Where is it? What effect does this have on marine animals and how deep is the problem? Previous attempts to answer these questions have proven difficult at best.

"However, he believes that real answers - and solutions - are at hand.

Garbett pointed to a "new wave" of converging technologies, many of which are already in production, "that are capable of operating in a number of different environments." No less than who are drones.

The idea is to develop a true hybrid: a USV (Unmanned Surface Vessel) could be adapted to act as a long-range platform. This base would likely be in line with the "virtually unsinkable" light catamaran hulls developed by the American company, Advanced Marine Technologies, Garbett said.

Discuss the potential of drones

Garbett thinks that companies are missing a lot in terms of the potential of drone technology; "... the opportunities and benefits always go well beyond what is generally understood or expected Drone technology represents a paradigm shift in capacity, allowing organizations to dramatically reduce costs and increase their security Most companies do not know that there are drones underwater for example - for some that will not be relevant but for others, it will mean the differences between being in business and being bankrupt.

Seize opportunities for smart cities

"There are so many stories of new and innovative technologies that create irrational fears," says Robert Garbett, founder and CEO of Drone Major Group, "such as the introduction of the first automobiles when people thought that passing 25mph would entail the death.

Irrational fear is normal and predictable, but if we look at how drones are used now, they usually perform tasks that are impossible or too dangerous for humans. Essentially, we believe that drones, as they currently do, will increase our capabilities and capacity - not replace them.

Drone Major and BSI Announce New Drone Standards in the House of Lords

Drone Major Group and the British Standards Institute (BSI) are organizing a drone at the House of Lords to present the economic potential of the professional UAV industry, its contribution to many industries and to provide insight into the new drone standards being implemented by BSI and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to help increase the development of the industry in 2018 and beyond.

New standards will lead to "building public confidence in safety, security and compliance".

Robert Garbett, in his role as Chair of the BSI Drone Standards Committee, said: "The development and adoption of the first quality and safety standards for the drone industry will make 2018 a pivotal year for an industry. which will become global phenomenon."

The technology that will power the 22nd century

Words by: Jamie Carter - Tech Radar

If predicting the future is stupid, then predicting the progress of technology is even more stupid. Challenges will appear that we have never considered, and the knowledge we now possess will often be wrong. The prediction game may soon become more a reflection of "us" in the 21st century rather than "them" in the 22nd century.

And yet, as we enter a period of hyper-adoption of new technology, we have more data than ever before to give us an idea of ​​what the world could look like in the '100s. And we know a thing is that the future will be home to some amazing technologies.

Beyond the driverless cars and Amazon wanting to use drones to deliver packages, the distant future could have a completely new airspace.

At present, global airspace is managed in a rigid "airspace corridor", purely for the benefit of commercial and military aircraft, but this could change. "The global airspace could be managed in a continuously flexible and dynamic way for the benefit of all," says Robert Garbett, founder and CEO of Dragon Major Group.
