Intel Reveals New Drone with Autopilot

United States: Intel has revealed Yuneec Typhoon H its first ever consumer drone, which is enabled with company’s RealSense technology which allows obstacle navigation. Intel has also introduced Falcon 8+ UAV (unnamed aerial vehicle) for commercial use in the North American market.

 “The Falcon 8 offers the best performance and weight-to-payload ratio in the entire market; the highest stability in harsh conditions; easily exchangeable and deeply integrated payloads; best-in-class safety, including unmatched robustness against magnetic field disturbances; high-precision GPS; and one of the world’s largest drone reseller and support networks to properly support your drone business and daily operations,” said senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s New Technology Group, Josh Walden.

The company’s AscTec Falcon 8 is previously available in the European market for commercial purposes. The company has also announced the Falcon 8+ drone for North American market, with features including power pack and ‘Intel Cockpit for ground control’. With the launch of new Falcon 8+ the company plans to apply automated aerial-sensing and full electronic system redundancy.

Furthermore, the new Falcon 8+ is capable of transmitting detailed images back to the controller, which would provide important aerial precision data.

According to a recent report published by TechSci Research, “Global Commercial Drone Market By Drone Type, By Application, By Region, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2015-2021”, over the next decade, rapidly evolving drone technology is expected to transform the conventional way of doing business in various sectors. Evolving regulatory policy framework, increasing commercial applications of drones across various end-use sectors, coupled with advancements in drone technologies are projected to propel growth in global commercial drone market in the ensuing years. Over the last five years, drones were being mainly used in the defense sector across various countries. However, various advantages such as time reduction, easy maneuverability and ability to trim down operational costs is increasing usage of commercial drones in diverse application areas such as precision agriculture, mapping, photography, surveying, media and entertainment, law enforcement & public safety, and inspection/monitoring in energy, mining and infrastructure sectors.

As per TechSci Research, the company has already launched few drones in other European countries and the launch of the new model for the commercial market is anticipated to increase Intel’s penetration in the growing global drone market.
