UAV 2016 pattern "big show" and those great changes

speaking of dazzling technology, 2016 UAV is a big show, from the sky to the ground, from the ground to the water, from industry to agriculture, from agriculture to military, this show of UAV is amazing. In order to seize this "big cake", enterprises have come up with innovative products, high-tech and perfect industrial chain to go all out. No one is willing to be the passer-by who can only covet

what can drones do? Environmental monitoring, smart agriculture, express transportation, military applications... Are you serious about it before you find that it has been used for countless times? So let's see what incredible drones have brought to us in 2016

the "heavenly eye" of environmental monitoring

environmental monitoring is an important part of modern environmental protection work. However, due to China's wide geographical area and complex industrial and agricultural production, the effect of collecting data by ground investigation is obviously not ideal. What should we do? Three dimensional detection, of course, requires the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, the "Air Scout"

using unmanned aerial vehicles to cruise according to the set route, carrying infrared remote sensing sensors to transmit on-site pictures in real time, and using aerial photography to break through the limitations of space and terrain, it can comprehensively monitor whether there are problems of random burning, random emission and dust from the air, providing technical support for environmental pollution disposal

the haze data collection, which has become the "pain of breathing" of modern people, also needs the help of UAVs. Using the UAV equipped with portable detection equipment, long-term air pollution tracking and monitoring experiments can be carried out to obtain the three-dimensional distribution data of the concentration of air pollutants such as PM2.5, so as to provide accurate data for haze prediction and prevention. In the era of big data, data accumulation is a very important link. Moreover, compared with the traditional means of using manned aircraft, sounding balloons, satellite remote sensing and other means to know the transportation of haze in other places, the portable detection equipment carried by UAV has the advantages of low cost, strong controllability and more flexible and comprehensive detection

navigator for ice breaking in Antarctica

it is very common for ships to be frozen in Antarctica, but how to make ice breaking ships find their exact location? Can UAV become a reliable navigation tool? In January, Australia successfully navigated the Antarctic light icebreaker by using unmanned aerial vehicle navigation technology for the first time in Antarctic waters

as a new low altitude aerial remote sensing system, UAV plays an important role in resource investigation, emergency management and other aspects with its advantages of light and fast data acquisition. However, even so, industry insiders believe that in terms of navigation, the reliability of UAV is not strong. If it breaks through the technical bottleneck of wind and low temperature in the future and realizes medium and short-term flight, it will provide near real-time ice information for sea ice navigation

and there will be a larger price adjustment for some special specifications! The new price will take effect from February 15, 2017. Aedes aegypti's "harvester"

another feat of drones in 2016 is to remove Aedes aegypti. Zika virus once made people panic. Up to now, its threat still exists in large numbers. Before the emergence of more effective detection technology and vaccine, the primary work of epidemic prevention personnel is to kill mosquitoes

on February 18, 2016, the civil defense forces participating in the "zero Zika" mosquito eradication operation in Campinas used the satellite monitoring system of Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation to improve the efficiency of mosquito eradication, which provided a reference for the mosquito eradication work in other cities in Brazil. This system, originally used for agricultural management and land monitoring, can also be used to eliminate Aedes mosquitoes. The high-resolution image generated by satellite data is almost perfect. It can mark the epidemic records of dengue fever, Zika fever and Chikungunya fever in each region at different periods on the map, so as to help regulators evaluate the effect of mosquito eradication actions in a specific period

soaring "Homestead"

in January 2016, the project director of Google's "projectwing" proposed to use drones to deliver express to customers, and said that drone express would become a reality in the next one to three years. To this end, Google and NASA cooperate to establish an air traffic control system, hoping to safely operate unmanned aerial vehicles in U.S. airspace

on April 5, according to foreign media MarketWatch, a patent granted to Google shows that Google Drones will not be used to deliver express delivery to users in the near future, and it is more interested in using drones to deliver medical devices. Previously, matternet, a silicon valley startup, used drones to deliver medical supplies to remote areas. In their view, using drones to send blood samples to other laboratories for testing is more cost-effective in terms of cost, energy consumption and time than letting people drive. On May 27, cainiaolo announced the research and development progress of its "E.T. logistics laboratory", which has been operating secretly for half a year. A number of logistics robots will be put into use within the year, including UAVs

the "pacesetter" of the agricultural revolution

since November 27, 2015, Xinjiang has innovatively launched the agricultural plant protection machine mg-1, and UAVs have gradually been recognized in the field of intelligent agricultural development. Compared with the software operation, which adds the migration limit of 1mg/kg of heavy metal aluminum, the plant protection UAV not only improves the operation efficiency, but also reduces the dosage by 30% to 50%. At the same time, the downward air flow generated by the propeller accelerates to form an aerosol flow, which enhances the penetrability of the drug droplets to the crops, reduces the drift degree of pesticides, and the effect of preventing wheat rust and aphids is more than 90%

on November 24, 2016, Dajiang launched the plant protection UAV mg-1s in Beijing. It has been upgraded and optimized around the UAV's flight control system, environmental perception module, spraying accuracy and other aspects, and provides battery management system, remote control with screen and other accessories to match the farmland business scene, with a higher cost performance than a generation of products

independent "surveyors"

now the "King" calls people to "patrol the mountain", which can be easily done by drones. It can take off and operate in mountainous, jungle and other complex terrain environments and densely built areas without a runway, and a UAV can "patrol" 780 square kilometers in a day

take the "Dapeng" series of vertical take-off and landing fixed wing UAVs as an example. It has been widely used in surveying and mapping, line patrol, monitoring, disaster early warning and other fields, and takes into account energy conservation and environmental protection. A 1.8-meter-long, 24.8-kilogram fixed wing UAV only consumes about 4 liters of fuel for 4 hours of continuous flight, with a cost of more than 20 yuan

2016 UAVs have experienced many changes

first, breakthroughs in shape: diversification + convenience

UAVs before 2016 may have left a stereotype of "big guy with rotor and fuselage" in the hearts of consumers. By 2016, you should feel it - "this thing is also a drone"

poweregg, the first consumer aircraft of Zhendi company, is called "little giant". Before unfolding, will you think that the smooth and round goose egg in front of you is a drone? Poweregg was released at the beginning of the year, which is a head start for the "transformation" of small unmanned aerial vehicles

dobby, a 199G pocket class UAV, comes from zero intelligence control. So small, isn't it just a toy? To be honest, Dobby's positioning is a self timer aircraft, which is fun and easy to use, which is its mission. Besides, what else do you want for an aircraft that you can take away in your pocket

mavicpro, Royal. If the size is a rogue regardless of performance, Dajiang can be regarded as a "true gentleman"

Royal, this consumer class folding UAV has been highly praised since its launch. The body is much smaller, not to mention its performance is no less than that of spirit 4, and it also matches the first angle glasses

although many people shouted "the legend of Dajiang is no longer", it is undeniable that it is innovating every year, and there are surprises every time. You know, Yu almost completely defeated another folding UAV, karma, released at the same time, which was eventually recalled due to performance problems

II. Technological breakthroughs: intellectualization + sophisticated

obstacle avoidance technology. Nowadays, anyone who doesn't have an obstacle avoidance function is embarrassed to say that he is a drone. That's right. Those who run amok are all "stupid birds". Intellectualization first requires UAVs to understand self-protection

Dajiang Genie 4 is the first product to introduce "computer vision" and "machine learning" technologies into the field of consumer UAVs, while genie 4pro, released in November, claims to be the most intelligent consumer UAV at present. It can set its own flight path according to the environment and complete a certain degree of free flight

obstacle avoidance technology based on visible light, infrared and ultrasonic sensors is also further developed this year, such as the so-called composite obstacle avoidance concept of typeonh of yuneec and the radar technology of zero explorer2. Calling such technology "intelligent" is also unsatisfactory. After all, aerotena confirmed the stability of microwave radar obstacle avoidance system with its brilliant performance at a UAV traffic control summit in the United States last month

operation technology. Consumer UAVs mainly focus on aerial photography and entertainment, so independent controllers are a burden for users, so many manufacturers choose to use terminals instead of controllers. In this way, the equipment is more portable, but the sense of operation and accuracy are also compromised. Therefore, whether from the perspective of entertainment or science and technology, we have more valuable operation methods than the app side

"brain control", which is mysterious, is mental power. This concept is not novel, but this technology has always been fashionable

in April, a North American University held the world's first "brain controlled" UAV competition. Students wore EEG (electroencephalogram) electronic headbands. Glycine can be directly excreted from the body through urine or metabolized into carbon dioxide and water waves to control UAVs. In July, researchers at Arizona State University developed a system to control the entire drone fleet through brain waves. Their goal is to decode the variables that control the robot. One to far is not the end of the study. In the future, they may even launch many to many robot operating systems

when it comes to controlling UAV groups, a key technology called "cluster intelligence" should be applied in military operations. In November this year, China set a new record for the cluster flight test of fixed wing UAVs with 67 aircraft, 17 more than the original record maintained by the U.S. Navy. Experts said that this marks that China has entered the first tier of unmanned system technology in the world. Well, there should be applause here. (Note: This article mainly focuses on civil UAVs, with the exception of this article.)

power technology. Power technology is related to endurance. It seems that this alone is not linked to "intelligence". However, whether it is obstacle avoidance, operation technology, or the flight control, positioning, communication and other capabilities of UAV, if the endurance bottleneck is not broken, all the functions behind it will be limited. For industrial UAVs, which need to be engaged in continuous work such as plant protection and detection, the importance of endurance is self-evident

high fuel utilization, stable transportation process, and better endurance than lithium batteries... Solid state hydrogen fuel cells are still so eye-catching. In February this year, the skyblade360 UAV, developed by Singapore's staerospace company, flew for six hours in a row, with a flight distance of 300 kilometers. This data makes most
