Sneak Peek at the Mavic Air 2 Assembly Line Comments Off on Sneak Peek at the Mavic Air 2 Assembly Line

DJI Factory Tour showing the production of the DJI Mavic 2. Earlier today, OsitaLV tweeted the following leaked video that shows at least part of the production of the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom drone. The short behind-the-scenes DJI factory tour video is well shot and edited. It seems like the sort of video that DJI would have used in presentations to investors, distributors, and the like.

The DJI factory tour video shows the highly automated assembly of the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom drone as well as a number of tests that these unmanned aircraft undergo before being shipped out. The video only shows the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom drone and not the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, although we imagine that the assembly of the DJI Mavic 2 Pro would be very similar.

NASA Heads Deliveries By Drone For Amazon, FedEx, FAA 0

A national system to manage the air traffic of commercial drones is underway, led by NASA.

As more companies look to make deliveries via unmanned aerial vehicles, a system to regulate…and avoid catastrophe, is desperately needed.

The future of UAV deliveries, automated flying taxis, and more could hinge on just how well the trials pan out.

“This activity is the latest and most technical challenge we have done with unmanned aerial systems,” an official with NASA in California, David Korsmeyer, told the Associated Press.

“When we began this project four years ago, many of us wouldn’t have thought we’d be standing here today flying UAVs with advanced drone systems off high-rise buildings,” he added.

Cities Present the Biggest Challenges

Amazon and FedEx are among the companies that hope to send consumer products by drone by 2020. Drone delivery company Flirtey began testing delivery of defibrillators for cardiac arrest patients last year in Reno under FAA oversight.

 

“A drone pilot can pre-program landing spots that are known to be safer, such as a garage rooftop or a park. But they can’t know ahead of time if there will be people standing there or a parked car,” NASA officials wrote in a blog. “One solution being tested during TCL4 was developed by UTM team members at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. It allows the drone to use its camera to detect pedestrians or vehicles and, if necessary, move on to the next safe place.

This phase represents the most complicated demonstration of advanced UAS operating in a demanding urban environment that will have been tested to date,” said Ronald Johnson, NASA’s UTM project manager.

Similar tests have been conducted in remote and rural areas. The Federal Aviation Administration has authorized individual test flights in cities before but never for multiple drones or outside the sight of the operator.

Conventional delivery methods have been found to be unreliable at times.

The agency outlined proposed rules in January that would ease restrictions on flying drones over crowds but said it won’t take final action until it finishes another regulation on identifying drones as they’re flying — something industry analysts say could be years away.

DJI To Announce New Action Camera On May 15th Comments Off on DJI To Announce New Action Camera On May 15th

The internet has been ablaze since DJI announced their Unleash Your Other Side event on May 15th.
Not much word or details prior to the announcement had been out regarding what they may be revealing. We’ve scoured the internet and found a wealth of information since then that reveals most of the details of their new Osmo Action Camera

DJI Osmo Action

Action Camera from DJI Spotted in the Wild

A known Twitter source was the first to unveil the Action Cam images and we see that the camera features 8x slow-motion and is potentially capable of recording at 240fps. You can check out the full list of rumoured specs below.

 

From here we see the Dual LCD display, making the DJI OSMO Action the first of its kind to have a screen on the front in addition to the back. It should all be waterproof considering the box image, announcement image and frankly, for the fact that if it was not water resistant at the very least, then DJI would just be competing against their own Osmo Pocket released not so long ago.

Specifications 

Drone Rumor has received reliable information that the camera will have the following specs

Compared to the Osmo Pocket, the Osmo Action will have a different capturing angle at 145-degrees  and the shutter speed is capable of 1/8000-120s

 

Sensor

1/2.3″ 12-megapixel Sony CMOS sensor (Sony IMX377)

Processor

Ambarella H2 image processor

Field of view

145° f/2.8

Shutter speed

1/8000-120s

Video

4K60p with 8x slow motion, HDR and automatic time-lapse.

Shooting modes

Single, AEB continuous shooting, countdown shooting, multiple continuous shooting, and interval shooting.

Other Features

Image stabilisation system, HDR and automatic time-lapse photography
