Unmanned aircraft system traffic management (UTM), the key enabler

Aerial technology is transforming the way people perceive aviation. Elevated vehicles, including passenger and delivery drones, have the potential to address today’s urban congestion, improve logistics, and create new products and markets. With the growing demand for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) across commercial and non-commercial markets, the skies will get busier. An upshot would be to manage and maintain an increasingly diverse airspace, while keeping all the air traffic safe and efficient.

Unmanned aircraft system traffic management (UTM) can play the role of a “key enabler” in the future of UAVs and presents significant business opportunities to main stakeholders. The global UTM market, valued at about US$538 million in 2018, is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 20 percent during the period 2019 to 2025.

Our study explores the challenges and solutions that are critical to the success of all UAV ecosystem stakeholders. It also discusses how a UTM system can ensure safe and efficient operations and is a critical requirement for the future of elevated mobility.

Hundreds of robots are to start to delivering packages to addresses across Milton Keynes, in one of the first full-scale uses of such technology.

Residents will be able to get parcels sent to a robot depot, which will notify them when they arrive and then deliver the item to their door.

The scheme is being pioneered by Starship Technologies.

The firm has already partnered with the Co-op in Milton Keynes to deliver groceries there.

The new service is available through a mobile phone app, with residents living in the neighbourhoods covered in Milton Keynes able to have packages delivered to an address of their choice.

Customers will pay a monthly subscription of £7.99 for an unlimited number of deliveries.

  • Have 10 cameras, ultrasound sensors, radar, and GPS
  • Are able to to see 360 degrees and have a “situational awareness bubble” around them to detect and avoid any obstacles
  • Use sophisticated computer vision and software to identify objects such as cars, pedestrians, traffic lights and pavements

Once signed-up on the app, people will receive a “personal address” at the depot where parcels can be sent, to then be delivered by the robots.

Lex Bayer, Starship’s chief executive officer, said: “We’re excited that thanks to our technology, local communities across Milton Keynes will never miss a home delivery again.”

APPLE REPORTEDLY TARGETING 2019 FOR IPAD MINI UPDATE AND AIRPOWER LAUNCH

Published

on

Apple’s second fall event is rapidly approaching, but noted TF International Securities supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has some predictions of what won’t be at the event: an updated fifth-generation iPad Mini, which Kuo says won’t be coming until sometime in 2019, via9to5Mac.

When it does arrive, though, Kuo says that the new iPad Mini will get “an upgraded processor and a lower-cost panel,” which would seem to position it as a smaller option for those considering Apple’s entry-level iPad model rather than a miniature version of the iPad Pro. An iPad Mini update has been a long time coming — Apple last updated the device with the iPad Mini 4 back in 2015.

Kuo also says that Apple is still looking at either late 2018 or early 2019 for the AirPower charging mat along with the rumored AirPod update that would add a Qi-compatible case. It’s still not clear whether those will be showing up at next week’s event, or if Apple will even mention the still missing charging pad at all.

Additionally, Kuo’s report also reiterated his main predictions for the upcoming October 30th event:

  • A pair of updated iPad Pros (presumably to replace the existing 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch models) with the rumored Face ID integration, reduced bezels, and USB-C support
  • A new Apple Pencil — which Kuo says will have an “all-new” design (that may mean support for USB-C, given the iPad rumors)
  • New Macs, including a “low-price” MacBook, and spec bumps for both the iMac and the long-neglected Mac Mini
