Flying fox as inspiration: thanks to its intelligent kinematics, the BionicFlyFox can master the agile flying manoeuvres of its natural role model. In order to be able to move in a defined space semi-autonomously, it communicates constantly with a motion-tracking system. Inspiration Flughund: Dank seiner intelligenten Kinematik beherrscht der BionicFlyingFox die agilen Flugmanöver seines natürlichen Vorbilds. Um sich dabei in einem definierten Luftraum teilautonom zu bewegen, kommuniziert er permanent mit einem sogenannten Motion-Tracking-System. Find out more ... http://www.festo.com/en/bionicflyingfox

Like its biological model, the flic-flac spider, the BionicWheelBot can both walk and roll. Together with its discoverer, Professor Ingo Rechenberg, the Festo bionics team has used these unique movement patterns and turned them into a technical masterpiece for the Hannover Messe 2018. Wie sein biologisches Vorbild, die Radlerspinne, kann der BionicWheelBot sich laufend und rollend fortbewegen. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Entdecker Prof. Ingo Rechenberg hat das Bionik-Team von Festo diese einzigartigen Bewegungsmuster für die Hannover Messe 2018 technisch umgesetzt.

Portmarnock is a coastal suburban village in Fingal, Ireland, with significant beaches and one of Ireland's best-known golf clubs, a modest commercial core, and inland residential estates. Howth is a village and outer suburb of Dublin, Ireland. The district occupies the greater part of the peninsula of Howth Head, forming the northern boundary of Dublin Bay. Originally just a small fishing village, Howth with its surrounding once-rural district is now a busy suburb of Dublin, with a mix of dense residential development, quarries and wild hillside. The only neighbouring district on land is Sutton. Howth is also home to one of the oldest occupied buildings in Ireland, Howth Castle. It has been the site of filming for many films.

Drone footage of Uganda
Of all the countries in East Africa, Uganda has got to be one of the most diverse and unique destinations. Its landscapes range from high mountains and gushing waterfalls to vast savannahs and fast flowing rivers. There is a reason why Uganda is known around the world as the “Pearl of Africa”. This small nation packs a punch and manages to tick all the boxes of an incredible East African experience without the high price tag. Featuring footage from: Bwindi National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park (Ishasha Sector), Ishasha Wilderness Camp, Kibale National Park, Crater Safari Lodge, Murchison Falls National Park, Baker's Lodge, Kidepo National Park, Apoka Safari Lodge, The Nile River, and Wildwaters Lodge.

Top most amazing and coolest ROBOTS
The family of robot animals from the German developer of robotics Festo is growing. The company presents many new robots, for example: a swarm of ants that can interact with each other, as well as butterflies and dragonflies, which are characterized by all the ease and grace of these insects. When they were created, the company focused not only on their appearance, but also on behavioral characteristics.

With the bionic butterflies, for the first time Festo combines the ultralight construction of artificial insects with collision-free flying behaviour in a collective. For coordination purposes, the eMotionButterflies make use of a guidance and monitoring system, which could be used in the networked factory of the future.

Sense and Avoid
Forward and downward vision systems enable the Inspire 2 to detect obstacles up to 30 meters ahead, allowing for protected flight at up to 34mph (54kph) at a controllable attitude angle of 25°. Upward facing infrared sensors scan obstacles 16ft (5m) above, adding protection when flying in enclosed spaces. Obstacle sensing systems are active during normal flight, RTH and all Intelligent Flight Modes.These sensors are core components of the DJI FlightAutonomy system, which brings the below intelligent features to the Inspire 2:

Unmanned aerial vehicle Supercam S350 is designed for panoramic and planimetric aerial photography and video shooting and other similar tasks.
Its modular architecture allows for quick and efficient changes of UAV payloads and aircraft equipment variations. Sealed design of the control system module and payload considerably prolongs service life of the costly equipment under regular operation.
Thanks to high stability and docile handling UAV Supercam can be used in adverse weather conditions.
UAV configuration with a tractor propeller engine perfectly fits its tasks and provides crew’s safety. Additional space inside UAV wings makes it possible to supply the vehicle with a wide range of control and measuring instruments.
Information and measuring equipment and automatic control system provide video shooting and photography with actual data record (geographic coordinates, altitude, image number, etc.) It significantly facilitates future data processing and ultimately allows you to automate multiple images stitching and determine geographical coordinates of objects.
UAV is supplied with a photo camera, a video camera, a thermographic camera and a gyro-stabilized television camera.

JIYI is a multi-national team which focus on integrating Unmanned Aerial System with various industrious applications. With our collective expertise in technology, product, manufacture and marketing, the most advanced technology in the world and high quality of product and excellent service could be realized with competitive and affordable price, under the well-developed infrastructure and industrial circle and huge market place here.
We specialized in commercial drone or Unmanned Aerial System. Currently we have two lines in multi-rotors and helicopters, with industrious grade and entertainment grade. We have development and scale production capacity for the key components like Flight Controller, Electronic Speed Controller, and rotors. Our completed Unmanned Aerial Vehicle features the maximum flight load 120 kg, payload 50 kg, maximum cruise time 60 minutes, range 20 km, and speed 120 km per hour. It could be operated with a ground radio controller, or flied and positioned by a high precision GPS, able to return to home autonomously. A completed vehicle in entertainment grade would cost about USD 1600 to $32,000, and an industrial graded UAV would cost about $20,000 to $240,000. The applications in UAV or drone cover aerial photography, industry inspection, precision agriculture (like crop scouting, field mapping, farm surveillance, livestock monitoring, herbicide spray, etc.).
Our marketing positioning is custom tailor and integration. We could tailor the flight controllers, electronic speed controllers, motors, ground control station and other components according to your needs and requirements, integrate the application system you developed or other third party hardware and software into the drone, provide open source code for the interface, so that you can deploy the drone technology in your own industry and develop new product with various applications. We expect to cooperate with you to develop the aerial platform for data collection, process, analysis, and management, and its international market, let more applications in various industries armed with flying wings of drone, and reach a win-win situation.
