Drone Monthly January 2023
1. Yanosik introduced vehicle inspection warnings ... from a drone
You're probably familiar with the popular Yanosik app, which warns you when there's a traffic control, radar, etc. at a particular location. As a result increasingly, police are inspecting roads with drones, the developers have introduced an option to report it. You can find the police drone patrol report button in the category "Unmarked".
2. Autonomous drone flights coming soon? U-space regulation
U-Space is an EU concept announced back in 2016. It is intended to be an ecosystem that will enable m.in. by autonomous drones. Something like an electronic traffic law for anything that flies. Flight rules across the Union to be even more unified and restrictive at the same time.
Certainly, U-space will bring quite a change to the BSP industry - for companies that want to use drones, it will create a friendly environment for business development, but for recreational flying a hindrance. It appears from the regulation that drones with the assigned class C0, i.e. weighing up to 250 grams and with a maximum speed of up to 19 m/s, will be excluded from the regulations. This means that the restrictions will not be as severe for recreational users mini drones.
The regulation introduced is preliminary outline of assumptions, guidelines and principles for EU countries, and changes related to U-space will be implemented in stages that will take many years. Or maybe you have a business idea using autonomous drones? If so, it makes sense to start now and be a millionaire in 2033 ;)
3. Drone delivered blankets and warmers - TOPR action
Now not as futuristic as the above, but the action that happened for real. Two mountaineers got stuck in the Tatra Mountains and were unable to complete the climb on their own and safely descend to the Shelter.
Evacuation was not possible, so tOPR rescuers delivered Blitz foils and heating packs and a radio by drone, despite dire weather conditions (snow and high wind). This allowed the mountaineers to wait safely until the morning, when helicopter transport was possible.
The use of new technology in rescue is a huge improvement in such a hard job. The action was carried out with the help of a drone DJI M30T with a thermal imaging camera that is waterproof.
Just two weeks earlier, the same drone helped locate a lost tourist. You can find more information on TOPR's FB https://www.facebook.com/1909.topr
