Unmanned aerial vehicles for mining applications

Unmanned aerial vehicles for mining applications | Les Volutiles | Scoop.it

The Aibot X6 hexacopter features advanced, multi-sensor, intelligent guidance systems that make it the safest and easiest to operate commercial UAV currently on the market. Aibotix GmbH, the maker of the vertical take-off and landing Aibot X6 UAV, announced in March 2013 that Leica Geosystems and their partners had been awarded worldwide distribution rights for the Aibot X6.

AIMEX 2013 also heralds the Australian announcement of the Leica SwissDrones dual-rotor UAV.  

Known as the SwissDrones Dragon 35, this streamlined synchropter as seen at MINExpo 2012, Las Vegas, Nevada, caused a buzz in the mining market by setting an entirely new standard for UAV technology. The Dragon 35 has superior payload capacity and flying time endurance whilst tightly integrating Leica Geosystems’ multispectral metric camera and imaging technologies. SwissDrones AG in Switzerland has granted Leica Geosystems the licence for worldwide distribution of the Dragon 35.

UAVs are becoming increasingly important in many of the applications served by Leica Geosystems’ solutions. The clear safety and productivity benefits when UAV technology is used for aerial mapping and imagery in mining has become a much sought-after alternative to the costly and time-consuming piloted aeroplane and helicopter solutions currently used. Unrestricted positioning of various measuring technologies on the UAV platforms will spawn a plethora of new applications as the full potential of this transformative UAV technology unfolds.

GE Introduces Miniature Automatic Video Tracker and Image Stabiliser for Unmanned Vehicles

GE Introduces Miniature Automatic Video Tracker and Image Stabiliser for Unmanned Vehicles | Les Volutiles | Scoop.it

GE Intelligent Platforms is introducing the ADEPT3100 rugged miniature automatic video tracker and image stabilizer.

By providing a proven, commercial off-the-shelf solution, the ADEPT3100 can help reduce programmer risk and cost and minimize time-to-market.

 

Designed specifically for environments in which size, weight and power are severely constrained – such as small autonomous platforms and man-portable devices –the ADEPT3100 builds on the success of the ADEPT3000 with additional functionality and improved ease of use. Combining video tracking and image stabilization in a single device provides improved tracking performance and superior image quality, as well as reducing cost. It is fully rugged, enabling the ADEPT3100 to survive the harshest commercial and military deployments.

"Crash Course: Lessons Learned from Accidents Involving Remotely Piloted and Autonomous Aircraft"

"Crash Course: Lessons Learned from Accidents Involving Remotely Piloted and Autonomous Aircraft" | Les Volutiles | Scoop.it

An investigation of remotely piloted system mishaps examines their causes, consequences, resultant corrective actions, and lessons learned.

 

Most undesired outcomes usually do not occur because of a single event, but rather from a series of events and actions involving equipment malfunctions and/or human factors. This book comprises a series of case studies focusing mostly on accidents and incidents involving experimental aircraft. The information provided should be of use to flight-test organizations, aircraft operators, educators, and students, among others. These lessons are not unique to the UAS environment and are also applicable to human aviation and space flight activities. Common elements include crew resource management, training, mission planning issues, management and programmatic pressures (e.g., schedule, budget, resources), cockpit/control station design, and other factors.

 ...The BR100 soared a few hundred feet and successfully beamed down Wi-Fi that was accessed by an iPhone (see screenshot below). ...Adam loves robots. He loves robots so much that it has been mentioned in most descriptions about him - including two separate speeches at his wedding. He also spent much of his time in grad school building robots. When the Ardupilot open source autopilot came to market a few years ago, it was only a matter of time before Adam built his own drone
