Drone Light Shows “Better in Every Way” Than Fireworks

After months of lockdown, people are starved for entertainment. They’ve apparently binge-watched everything they ever wanted to see on Netflix, HBO and Disney+, played video games until their eyes bled, and became bored enough to even manage to read a book or two.

So with the 4th of July rapidly approaching, many Americans are looking for something different to occupy their time and to empty their wallets, and fireworks fit the bill. But fireworks come with their own list of issues, including the fact that they terrify birds and wildlife as well as pets (more herehere, and here); they add toxic chemical pollutants to the air, water and land (more here); litter the landscape with spent plastic casings, which are nearly indestructible; create inescapable explosions that can trigger terror in veterans and others suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (more here); and increase the risk of fires at a time when the wildfire risk in many places is already high. Further, the private use of fireworks is accompanied by the ever-present danger of permanently damaging one’s hearing and losing body parts.

Are drone light shows the solution to “the fireworks problem”?

Drone light shows differ from fireworks displays because drones are reusable, and do not produce chemical and noise pollution.

Drone Light Shows “Better in Every Way” Than Fireworks

After months of lockdown, people are starved for entertainment. They’ve apparently binge-watched everything they ever wanted to see on Netflix, HBO and Disney+, played video games until their eyes bled, and became bored enough to even manage to read a book or two.

So with the 4th of July rapidly approaching, many Americans are looking for something different to occupy their time and to empty their wallets, and fireworks fit the bill. But fireworks come with their own list of issues, including the fact that they terrify birds and wildlife as well as pets (more herehere, and here); they add toxic chemical pollutants to the air, water and land (more here); litter the landscape with spent plastic casings, which are nearly indestructible; create inescapable explosions that can trigger terror in veterans and others suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (more here); and increase the risk of fires at a time when the wildfire risk in many places is already high. Further, the private use of fireworks is accompanied by the ever-present danger of permanently damaging one’s hearing and losing body parts.

Are drone light shows the solution to “the fireworks problem”?

Drone light shows differ from fireworks displays because drones are reusable, and do not produce chemical and noise pollution. However, there are only a few dozen companies in the world that have the proper permits, training, technical skills and supplies to plan and carry out a large-scale drone light show. One such company is Intel, which is at the forefront of this technology. It specializes in creating dynamic 3D light shows using autonomous swarms of drones that they designed especially for light shows; the Shooting Star.

AI & ML Can Open Up Space For Drones To Demonstrate Full Potential

The demand for drones in the market has seen an incredible upsurge lately. As a matter of fact, the convenience of remote monitoring and its flexibility in harsh terrains has considerably increased the popularity of drone technology across segments like eCommerce, agriculture, warfare, to name a few, which was unthinkable a decade ago.

According to data, the current global market size of drone technology is about $14 billion and is expected to grow to $43 billion by the year 2024. The major chunk of this growth can be attributed to its significant usage in commercial deliveries. Currently, there are several drones start-up companies in India, which focus on the development, manufacturing, providing analytics platform for drone solutions. Some prominent names include Bangalore-based EDALL SYSTEMS and Skylark Drones and Delhi-based Atom Drones.

Having said that, while drones have seen a significant market boost, it comes with safety, security and privacy concerns, where it has been constantly scrutinised to be deployed for exploiting their security and privacy of individuals. Further, there were also cases where criminals, drug cartels and terrorists have used drones. To dig more in-depth on the drone technology and the involvement of artificial intelligence to enhance drone solutions, Analytics India Magazine spoke to Karthik Shankaran, the Chief Innovation Officer of Detroit Engineered Products (DEP).

To set the context — DEP is a product development house where customers focus strictly on drone development. While other companies work on the development and manufacturing of drones, DEP offers drone development as-a-service and solution offering, making it preferable for collaboration in solution development. With DEP, customers can get their product/solutions developed during any stage of drone development — from the conceptual phase to prototype and production. The company has the expertise and experience in the development of both rotor drones (Quadcopter) as well as fixed-wing drones.

Deciphering the impact of IoT on Smart Lighting

Technology is a compelling resource when it comes to minimizing the chances of covid-19 transmission. While the usefulness in the medical realm is evident and would require a separate discussion, the main focus of our current discussion will be IoT-empowered lighting solutions. Most of the manufacturers dealing in lighting solutions are opting for smart accessibility to minimize human contact.

Implementing smart lighting solutions will allow us to access the appliances without having to touch the switchboards. Besides eliminating touch and physical interactions, smart lights can offer a host of other relevant benefits to the early adopters.

Embracing Digitalization

The concept of connected LEDs does instill confidence. However, before we delve any deeper into why and how companies are embracing smart lighting solutions, we need to understand a bit more about the digitalization and the introduction of new services. Post covid19, individual inclinations are expected to change. Instead of opting for massive setups, preferences will be more discretionary in nature, when it comes to using home lighting solutions.
