AUVSI San Diego Chapter wins 2017 AUVSI Development Award for most improved chapter!
The University of California, Riverside (UC Riverside) will develop artificial intelligence (AI) for UAS, using a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation.
AI in UAS would one day allow the robots to conduct “far-reaching reconnaissance missions”— such as search and rescue missions, and environmental and security monitoring—without direct human control.
In support of the firefighting efforts in Northern California by CAL FIRE, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc.’s (GA-ASI) MQ-9 UAS is being used by the California Air National Guard’s 163d Attack Wing operating out of March Air Reserve Base.
The UAS has full-motion video (optical and infra-red), as well as ground imaging Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) capability, which provides clear sight through both clouds and smoke.
Flight school Revolution Aviation has partnered with aerial photography company Ultimate Drone Productions to begin offering cinematography services via UAS.
Through this partnership, Newport Beach, California-based Revolution Aviation—primarily known as its U.S.-registered trademark EatSleepFly—and Ultimate Drone Productions will provide a “full service photo and video cinematography production services.”
According to a press release published by Vertical Magazine, the demand for aerial imagery in Southern California is out-pacing supply, as there are just approximately 20,000 registered commercial UAS services in all 50 states.
Through their newly announced partnership, Magna and May Mobility will “retrofit and scale up” May Mobility's fleet of self-driving shuttles set to enter the US market.
Magna is retrofitting low-speed self-driving micro transit electric vehicles from the chassis up, and the initial fleet of vehicles is expected to debut on June 26 with May Mobility's first commercial deployment, taking place in Detroit, Michigan.
Ohio’s 33 Smart Mobility Corridor has announced plans to study the use of UAS to monitor traffic and roadway conditions from the air along the corridor.
The three-year study, which is scheduled to start on July 1, is a partnership between DriveOhio’s UAS Center and the Ohio State University College of Engineering.
