The Japanese multinational conglomerate, Sony will be entering the drone market with its new project called Airpeak. The specifics of the drone itself have been under wraps. Sony has plans to launch the drone project next spring.

The bare-bones announcement says only that Sony has taken inspiration significantly from the recent proliferation of drones. Secondly, the changes the drones have caused in both the industrial and creative sectors have also been behind the inspiration for the project.

The Airpeak project will focus on multiple industries. Although it has its work cut out for it if it intends to go up against DJI. DJI has become the first choice for everyone in the consumer Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) sector.

Sony is describing the drone as in development within the field of Artificial Intelligence robotics. This along with the aim to enable drone use where it was previously difficult to do use, suggests that Sony plans to integrate a fair amount of intelligence into the drones’ systems.

Small UAV drones are getting smarter by the day. These drones are now able to avoid obstacles, recognize other flying objects, and also navigate between buildings without any intervention from their human operators. However, many of these capabilities are still essentially theoretical rather than widely deployed in drones.

Apart from the name, the general flavor of the project, and render of what is almost certainly a rotor, that is the sum total of what little Sony has said about its new project.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles And The Reason For Their Popularity

UAVs are aircraft without a human pilot. They include a UAV component, a ground-based controller, and a system to communicate between the UAV and the controller. The drones are either controlled by a human operator or by onboard computers called autopilot.

As opposed to manned or crewed aircraft, UAVs were originally used for missions that were too dull, dirty, or dangerous for humans. Although drones were originally only for military applications, their use is increasingly finding many more applications. This includes aerial photography, product deliveries, agriculture, policing and surveillance, infrastructure inspections, science, smuggling, and drone racing. Civilian UAVs now greatly outnumber military UAVs. There is an estimate that there was a sale of over a million UAVs to civilians by 2015.

The use of UAVs for law-enforcement purposes is in regulation at a state level. Law enforcement can intervene regarding the use of drones at a state level by the governments.
