Drones Technology Making Life Easier

Drones Technology Amazing Development

On May 1, the company EHang Manufacturer of Drones made a flight demonstration of their Drones, They made a display with 1300 Drones flying at the same time and all of them controlled by a single computer, before a crowd of approximately 100,000 people.

The event was held on an old wall called Xi’an and it was something really extraordinary, for two reasons, the first was the show itself, it was the first time you saw something similar, the noise made it feel like there was a huge swarm of bees, it was an unparalleled demonstration of Light and Color, they also created incredible graphics with drawings, letters and numbers that could be seen from miles away; The second reason was that although there were some small problems mainly caused by the interference of the electronic devices of the spectators, I think it was a technological success to be able to fly that number of devices without there being any interference between them. Some of them left the training but It was caused mainly by the interference of cell phones of the public.

The EHang Company used for the demonstration Quadricopters Ghostdrone 2.0 of regular sale, you can see on the screen how they came and went changing the training as scheduled and in full screen we can see some devices that lost the connection and it was due to the electronic interference that received, in fact it was the problem although it happened was very small if we take into account the magnitude of the event.

The company EHang was included in the book G├╝ines for having set a world record by operating the largest number of unmanned aerial vehicles simultaneously, which has been the largest demonstration that has been done so far.

We had previously seen similar shows but they had been made with 156 Drones, another of them was with 300 and there was a third demonstration with approximately 1000 Drones recently, that shows me the enormous progress that this technology is having and makes me think about the future , until where it is going to arrive, I am even sure that there will come a time when it will influence the presentation of fireworks, and I also see that it will have implications on Advertising, apart from many other activities that the Drones are making life a lot easier for everybody.

Personal Drones

How they were developed

When we see a small flying object, we think “it’s a Drone”, almost everyone has seen and knows them, some people have already used them, others have seen them flying or have seen videos and photos.

Actually Drones have been around for a long time, I remember that many years ago we built model airplanes guided by cables and then we started to build some models remote controlled by radio, we used gas engines at that time and did not really flight to far, but they flew extraordinarily well and were very funny, I remember that at that time the electronics had not evolved with miniaturization yet and we were using a series of bulbs resistors and capacitors as well as very voluminous electronics, then came the transistors, the logic gates and the diodes, the integrated circuits and all the elements were reduced with the new technology of miniaturization, before that we needed a box of 30 centimeters for the transmitter, now the same thing fits almost in a small box of phosphors, now we also have satellites, with GPS and higher frequencies and thanks to all that new technology we can now fly and control a Drone or unmanned aerial vehicle at distances as far as 7 to 8 Kilometers, and in some cases much more than that.

The first drones that arrived were those created for military purposes, they helped to the development of Drones Technology, now they have begun to be build them for Civil and Personal use, the new commercial drones are working in a number of different activities such as surveillance of Power Lines, Photogrammetry, Prevention and control of fires, Photography and Video, saving people in distress, Transport of medicines, Location of people in cases of disaster using infrared cameras, Cattle Control, Agriculture, Mining, etc.

Actually they are a lot cheaper than using a helicopter for an infinite number of uses that is creating an enormous growth in the sales and service of these vehicles generating at the same time a great challenge for the Governments to be able to create Laws and Regulations to help control these new activities properly.
