DJI Technology has been working on enhanced data security measures for some time now, but admits that news that the U.S. Army ordered its members to stop using DJI drones earlier this month.
The U.S. Army is reexamining its decision to stop using DJI drones, components and software after the leak of an internal memo from the Army’s Deputy Chief of Staff captured international attention.
As the drone industry continues to evolve, researchers and manufacturers are constantly looking for more cost effective, efficient ways to employ these systems in commercial applications—and that includes employing swarms.
Unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) certainly seem to have a lot of potential. They can be used to spray pesticides on a large farm to boost crop yields, for example, or to move materials at a mining site.
