OSHA Drone Inspections

OSHA using Drones as a Tool…But is it Legal?

As drones become more prevalent in society, you will see more organizations adopting drones a working tool.   Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is another organization that realizes the true values drones bring to the workplace.  To meet this new demand, OSHA is obtaining a Blanket Public Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to operate drones nationwide. Drones are as commonplace as chairs in an office.  If you do not currently hold a FAA Commercial Drone Pilot License, you should think about training now! his will give you a leg up on your competition in the job market.

OSHA uses drones with cameras to conduct at least nine inspections of employer facilities after obtaining permission from the companies’ management. The drones were most frequently deployed following accidents at work-sites that were considered too dangerous for OSHA inspectors to enter, including an oil drilling rig fire, a building collapse, a combustible dust blast, an accident on a television tower and a chemical plant explosion.

Currently, OSHA has to as organizations permission to fly over their facility.  Some lawyers are raising an eyebrow as this could open a pandora’s box of liabilities that historically may not have been detected.  Are these unauthorized and legal searches?  Read more and tell us what you think about OSHA using drones

Aerial Drone Battle

Aerial Drone Battle

Drone Competition- Aerial Battle

Drone racing has been a growing sport over the last few years and you can find thrilling championship races on various platforms like ESPN and YouTube.  Recently, Kids drone Zone held an Aerial Battle for scholars. The competition combined building and coding of drones. Scholars were met with various challenges under not only time constraints but also competition rules.

The drone competition focused on three elements flight skills, programming skills, and drone knowledge. Scholars flew a variety of drones from drones built during drone squad to programmable drones. Elementary middle school and high school scholars battled in the air for the top number one spot.

Scholars have been training for this competition since, January 2019. In addition to the drone competition, scholars also had to do a research project whereby they conducted live interviews with drone industry experts, created a written report, and presented their findings via live presentation to their peers. Are you ready to aerial battle this summer register today!

Drone Delivery and Not Pizza!

Drone Delivery and Not Pizza!

Many have been anticipating drone delivery for a while now! Well we here to tell you drone delivery is a thing! No not Domino’s Pizza and not Amazon package but a live human kidney! Uber move over… drone delivery of a live human kidney was successful, April 2019. Will it be long before human drone delivery outpaces overrides!

Imagine the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) implications for young scholars to come. Young scholars will be participating in drone coding and artificial intelligence the driving force of this customized unmanned vehicle.

The living legacy foundation of Maryland and the University of Mount Maryland collaborated to do a 3 miles delivery of the world’s first live viable kidney to a woman in Maryland. University of Maryland students and research department build a customized drone to make this monumental transport. This customized technology flew 44 test flights over 700 hours before the actual live flight took place.

Autonomous is All the Rage at CES 2019

Autonomous is All the Rage at CES 2019

Autonomous is not going away anytime soon!

2019 CES is well under way and just like Heinz Ketchup anticipation was at the forefront!  Last year, autonomous cars were all the rage “Autonomous” is all the rage!  Now you can own an aerial security drone to watch your house, by sunflower labs!

Intelligent razes that heat up to 122 degrees and toothbrushes that Id non-brushed areas by releasing a serum to highlight the misses via discoloration amongst other Hi-Tech gadgets are taking center stage.  

No Autonomous cars/trucks are not dead as we see Daimler unveiled a new self-driving truck and Bosch unveiled a driver less shuttle bus.

Traffic Sucks! But What if Traffic Was Aerial?

Traffic Sucks! But What if Traffic Was Aerial?

Ramp metering, HOV lanes, and sensor-triggered traffic lights were all the rage. Let’s Face It! They Don’t Work! Uber Aviation is working on a solution!

Traffic  Science (Yes..That’s a career!)  is about way more than just phantom jams. It’s also about understanding ways to alleviate traffic before it happens. Ramp metering educes the influx of new vehicles onto the highway, thus preventing big clumps at on-ramps and cutting down on traffic. Other solutions have been HOV lanes and sensor-triggered traffic lights.  None of these are working… Read More About Uber Aviation
