Cyberjaya - June 12

Whether you call them Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Miniature Pilotless Aircraft or Flying Mini Robots, drones are rapidly growing in popularity. They are still in the infancy stage in terms of mass adoption and usage, but drones have already broken through rigid traditional barriers in industries which otherwise seemed impenetrable by similar technological innovations.

Over the past few years, unmanned aircrafts have become central to the functions of various businesses and governmental organizations and have managed to pierce through areas where certain industries were either stagnant or lagging behind. From quick deliveries at rush hour to scanning an unreachable military base, drone features are proving to be extremely beneficial in places where man cannot reach or is unable to perform in a timely and efficient manner.

Increasing work efficiency and productivity, decreasing workload and production costs, improving accuracy, refining service and customer relations, and resolving security issues on a vast scale are a few of the top uses drones offer industries globally. Adoption of drone technology across industries leapt from the fad stage to the mega-trend stage fairly quickly as more and more businesses started to realize its potential, scope, and scale of global reach.

Drone technology has developed and prospered in the last few years. Individuals, commercial entities, and governments have come to realize that drones have multiple useful features, which include:

  • Aerial photography for journalism and film

  • Express shipping and delivery

  • Gathering information or supplying essentials for disaster management

  • Thermal sensor drones for search and rescue operations

  • Geographic mapping of inaccessible terrain and locations

  • Building safety inspections

  • Precision crop monitoring

  • Unmanned cargo transport

  • Law enforcement and border control surveillance

  • Storm tracking and forecasting hurricanes and tornadoes

.... and much much more!.

Benefits of Modular Drone

Today’s drones have limited flight endurance and payload capacity. Modular make it simpler for enterprises to build a drone for a specific use case. By making drones to be interconnected you are enabling things that were impossible before!. The development of hundreds of more uses of drones is underway due to the multiple investments pouring into this promising industry every day. What modular offers is the ability to make multiple drones for lower capital investment and at a greater value!. Under that criterion, Insider Intelligence predicts total global shipments to reach 2.4 million in 2023 – increasing at a 66.8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Drone growth will occur across five main segments of the enterprise industry: Agriculture, construction and mining, insurance, media and telecommunications, and law enforcement.

VOLBIRD is set to benafit for this trand!. Our modular drone concept solves many problems in this industry. Recently we have been talking to industry experts and potential customers on the used for modular drones. Aerodyne which is the second-largest drone service provider in the world has been expanding its market to rural areas. Transporting the drone to those areas is very challenging. It required many trucks and equipment to transport different drones for different applications to those areas. This is one of the problems that can be solved with a modular drone. By just transporting 3 simple modules the team can assemble the drone to any design form factor for a particular application. The drone can carry any payload for deep mining and data collection.

While enterprise is the fastest-growing drone market, more inexpensive drones are being introduced such as modular Drones and flexible Drones. Additionally, flaring competition among drone providers is pushing down costs for these types of commercial drones – particularly among higher-end models that can shoot photo, live stream video and lidar scanning.
