Researchers test new and improved systems to track drones | GeekWire
As more and more drones fill the skies, increasingly sophisticated methods will be required to track them under increasingly challenging conditions. How will they navigate if they lose touch with the Global Positioning System? A UW experiment illustrates how that question is being addressed. Christopher Lum, a UW research assistant professor of aeronautics and astronautics, is quoted.

The reach of drones across US sectors is wide, especially since the unmanned aerial vehicles can go places that may not be safe for workers and are generally faster and less expensive than people. They can be particularly good for inspecting wind turbines and solar farms, according to Bloomberg NEF. In one case, drones took about a week to evaluate the 80 turbines at a German offshore wind farm, a task that would’ve required three months for workers to visually examine each blade.</p>

Thus demonstrating my related point about Magic Leap's pricey AR headset, in a roundabout way: there's insufficient consumer demand for drones to keep that market afloat. But there's very real business demand for them, and business is less price-sensitive. The market therefore lies in pricier, more functional machines. Ditto for AR headsets: the consumer use case just isn't there (it isn't even there for gaming with VR headsets), so the business/industrial space is the one to aim for.

Amazon patents warehouse blimps with packages delivered by drone | Popular Science
There is a structure hovering silently above the city. Buoyant and robotic, it's the store where everyone shops—and a store that no one ever visits. Summoned by the press of a button and a signal sent through the air, merchandise is prepared for flight and delivered to the ground gently, by drone.
