CES 2016

So here we are, starting 2016 off with CES. This article caught my eye because these innovations are going to help our industry overcome the hurdles being put in our way – distrust, annoyance and legislation.

It looks like Yuneec are leading the way in obstacle recognition and avoidance which is critical if we are going to have a successful future:

CES 2016: Intel drone dodges ‘falling tree’ on stage

Chip-maker Intel has revealed a collision-avoiding drone that automatically dodges obstacles in its path.

The device was demoed at the CES tech show where it autonomously detected and avoided a fallen object.

Intel part-owns Yuneec, the company behind the drone, and provided the device’s 3D camera sensor.

The RealSense technology involved uses infrared lasers to detect the distance of nearby things.

Should evasive action be necessary, the aircraft takes it on its own.

Falling ‘tree’

At CES, the Typhoon H drone followed a cyclist through a small course on stage, complete with a handful of mock “trees”.

When one of these obstacles was made to fall in the drone’s path, it dodged it, and thereby avoided a collision.

“The drone was able to stop, wait and go round that obstacle as well – following the rider all the time,” said Intel’s chief executive Brian Krzanich.

“Any other commercial drone out there would have crashed into the tree.”

The Typhoon H also has a 4K camera which has can pan 360-degrees and take photographs with a 12 megapixel sensor.

Intel said it would be on sale within six months. It is set to cost $1,799 (£1,200).

Commercial possibilities

Features such as collision avoidance are not likely to prevent the kind of tumbles which nearly caught skier Marcel Hirsher last month, commented IHS analyst Tom Morrod, when a drone malfunctioned.

“There’s a safety aspect which is probably not going to go away – things that fly occasionally crash,” he said.

However, he added, the benefits of more intelligent drones are not to be underestimated.

“Things like collision avoidance, self navigation, spatial awareness – all of these technologies that take away the manual control of the drones are enabling drones for commercial purposes,” he said.

“Those could be security or delivery or maintenance, all of those types of applications – that’s going to be what really drives the market.”

Another safety conscious drone at CES comes in the form of Belgian firm Fleye’s device. It encloses its spinning blades within both a shell and a cage to help reduce the risk of injury.

However, as a demo for the BBC proved, it is still possible for the device to swerve off-course and crash.
