#15 - OIL & GAS DRONES

Drones Become Independent

/

Drones are useful but they have limitations. Battery life, signal strength and onboard memory  limit how far a drone can fly and record. H3 Dynamics recently unveiled a solution to counter these handicaps. Its DRONEBOX is a kind of nest for drones with charging capabilities. Once the quadcopter returns to its landing pad, solar panels atop the box feed it with energy. Multiple boxes can be interconnected, creating a drone network. Applications include oil & gas inspection, front-line military activities and even wildlife monitoring. The “Internet of Drones” is on its way.
