Swiss Post Halts Drone Delivery Services
Our first drone news story this week is about Swiss Post halting their drone delivery services. Swiss Post, in association with Matternet, had completed nearly 3,000 flights. However, recently, they experienced their second drone crash. While the parachute safety system was deployed, the tether was cut off by the spinning propeller. Fortunately, a crisis was averted as the drone crashed barely 50 feet from a school playground. This incident certainly highlights the need for better parachute safety systems. Regular ADU listeners might recall our past show, “Parachute for Drone | Will Flying Drone over People Become Possible in Future?“. In this show, we had highlighted why ballistic parachutes are necessary for a 100% fail-safe solution.
Everdrone completes its First Drone Delivery using GPS-Free Drones
Our next story is also about drone delivery services, albeit an encouraging one. A Swedish company, Everdrone has completed its first drone delivery by transporting medical packages between two hospitals. Uniquely enough, GPS-free drones equipped with ADS-B receivers were used for this job.
DJI’s New FPV Transmission System and Osmo Mobile 3
Next, we move on to some of the latest and most exciting DJI News. DJI has launched its all-new Digital FPV Transmission System. This new system comes with higher latency, which results in a more detailed and sharper view. Is DJI gearing up to launch an FPV drone next? DJI has also made an FCC filing for the Osmo Mobile 3. Initial reports reveal that the new Osmo Mobile 3 will be lighter, have a foldable design, and come with a USB-C connection.
