+ - German railways to test anti-graffiti drones-> 1

Submitted by garymortimer
garymortimer (1882326) writes "Germany's national railway company, Deutsche Bahn, plans to test small drones to try to reduce the amount of graffiti being sprayed on its property.

The idea is to use airborne infra-red cameras to collect evidence, which could then be used to prosecute vandals who deface property at night.

A company spokesman said drones would be tested at rail depots soon."

+ - Control multiple drones via the web :-DroneDeploy-> 1

Submitted by garymortimer
garymortimer (1882326) writes "DroneDeploy announced today that it is launching a web-based drone control platform. Available at www.dronedeploy.com, the site enables users to operate multiple drones at the same time, on any web-enabled device.

Mike Winn, said “We built DroneDeploy to help people get stuff done with drones – we want to make it easier, safer and help people stay within the laws.”

Safety and legal is at the heart of DroneDeploy’s platform: “On the surface, we prevent collisions between vehicles on the platform, avoid tall structures, and ensure localised legal compliance,” said Jono Millin, “but we go much deeper than that. We monitor vibrations and inputs vs responses to detect early signs of wear and tear, and can take weather conditions, engine capabilities and fuel into account so your drone never flies out of range.”"
