Drone Helps Luxembourg Winegrower

Luxembourg wine producer Corinne Kox began trials of the small unmanned aircraft last month over part of her century-old family estate near the borders with France and Germany. The test drone, guided by a pilot operating a digital control panel on the…

Moth Patterns Improve Drone Tech

Researchers from Boston University (BU) have captured data from moth flight patterns to improve drone navigation through complex environments. To understand how moths plan their route, the researchers, led by Ioannis Paschadilidis at BU and Thomas Daniel at the University of Washington, mounted eight hawk moths (Mantuca sexta) on metal rods connected to a torque meter. In front of each…

No wonder a weapon like that is popular in conflict regions. But the launcher’s questionable quality can cause the missiles to occasionally misfire, which is why they often litter…

When the Wayne Township Fire Department first started deploying drones a few years ago, pilots were flying the systems just about every day. Beyond their community, they traveled across Indiana to support agencies…

Drones Could Transform Cities

High in the sky, far above undulating hills flooded with bright yellow gorse bushes, a small black dot zips back and forth. It flies first one way, then back the other in a matrix formation, taking dozens of pictures of the ground below. “A drone takes a twentieth of the time and a quarter of the cost than using humans…
