New system allows air traffic controllers to converse with drones

New system allows air traffic controllers to converse with drones | For Me | Scoop.it

It utilizes UFA's ATVoice Automated Voice Recognition and Response software, allowing drones to both verbally respond to spoken information requests (delivered by radio), and to act on clearances granted by air traffic controllers.

"Our project aimed to develop and demonstrate an autonomous capability that would allow a drone to verbally interact with air traffic controllers," said Dr. Reece Clothier, leader of the RMIT Unmanned Aircraft Systems Research Team. "Using the system we’ve developed, an air traffic controller can talk to, and receive responses from a drone just like they would with any other aircraft."

DroneEssentials's curator insight, February 9, 2015 8:17 AM

The cost saving potential of using a drone to spot sharks in the sea as opposed to having a helicopter is substantial. 

 

Not only that but being trained to pilot a drone is a lot quicker and cheaper than that of a chopper! 

Cameron's curator insight, March 26, 2015 2:20 AM

Drones are without a doubt a technological advancement both in a war zone and our daily lives. However the public must be appreciative of this advancement. Ethical use of these drones must be considered once they are in the air, rules and regulations must be met, if not, the public may perceive them as  threat. Drones are undoubtedly going to impact the world within the next 10 years for more good than bad. it is the controller of the drone that should be accounted for the actions, not the drone itself.

DJI Programmes Phantom with No-Fly Zones Around 350 Airports | UAS VISION

DJI Programmes Phantom with No-Fly Zones Around 350 Airports | UAS VISION | For Me | Scoop.it

“I’m very encouraged that a manufacturer is taking that step because unmanned aircraft of that type, particularly when they are used by inexperienced users who aren’t familiar with the regulations, may create hazards for other aircraft,” says Dr Reece Clothier, aerospace engineer and UAV expert at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

“So building in safety hazards like DJI is doing is a great catch to prevent those situations happening.”

Australia’s civil aviation regulator CASA, which is currently grappling with the air safety and privacy issues posed by drone technology, was also unaware of DJI’s initiative.

Spokesman Peter Gibson says CASA has not lobbied the Chinese drone manufacturer.

“The only thing we would say to users of course is to be very mindful that only a very small number of aerodromes are blocked, in using this machine…so you wouldn’t want people, thinking, I’m right to fly anywhere because, if it is letting me do it, it must be OK,” he said.

Nigel Brown's curator insight, April 15, 2014 9:02 PM

This is a great initiative by DJI. Let's hope other manufacturers follow and a centralised, open record is established that includes the 400-500 aerodromes, and other no fly zones in Australia. For example did you know there is a $30,000 fine for flying over Sydney Harbour???

Jo Anna's curator insight, March 22, 2016 3:21 AM

This is a great idea to help prevent collisions and interference between unmanned aerial vehicles and manned ones. Hopefully other manufacturers will follow suit. Although the system is far from perfect yet in that only 10 airports are included, it is probable that more airports and other no fly zones will eventually be added. I look forward to this, it's the obvious sensible thing to do. It brings peace of mind to drone enthusiasts everywhere who may be visiting unfamiliar territory. No need to worry about accidentally flying in a no fly zone and copping the consequences. I plan on traveling a lot in future with my career, so it's very relevant.
