DroneBase: Connect drone pilots with companies
As more companies use drones to perform tasks and collect data, we can expect these processes to become increasingly automated in the years to come. While regulations requiring a pilot and restricting flying beyond line of sight (BVLOS) aren’t changing anytime soon, there’s a long list of companies that have developed drones and have them on a shelf that’s coming to market waits. A large number of companies in this sector require commercial work. Drones can capture crisp 4K video, fly in places helicopters and planes can’t reach, and perform precise scans like a Star Trek tricorder. Still, most drones end up gathering dust on the pad because organized flight options are hard to find.
we have met DroneBase, a company that gave us the solution: connecting idle drone pilots with companies with specific needs in different industries.

The Global Future of Work Foundation recently noted the work of Remote Drone Pilot. Remote drone drivers can be used in short-term in agriculture, security, scientific field exploration, facility inspection, construction and more, in the medium-term they can also work in transportation (sending packages in a very short time). .
Cape: Controls drones remotely without knowledge and without having a drone
This company wants to enter the remote control drone market with a completely different proposition than what companies in this industry have been used to for the past two years: to reduce the cost of control systems to the point where it is profitable for companies , public administrations and state security forces and organs.
cape is a Online drone flight platform that makes a fleet of devices available to companies and institutions that (logically) don’t want to commit to the fixed costs of acquiring and maintaining a fleet, and that is designed for people who have no idea how the hell something like this is piloted. Yes, you read that right: it allows you to fly a real plane in a real place without leaving the comfort of your computer, warm and carefree from your work table. No flight certificate, no worry of the drone crashing and destroying private property or, heaven forbid, slitting the throat of a passing naturist.
You are responsible for selecting the drone model that interests you the most and they are responsible for making sure it can be flown automatically in a safe area, at a legal altitude and with all the necessary permits. All you have to do is connect to a computer, a phone or a tablet, without having to outsource control of the devices as well.
And best of all. Without having to resort to maintenance.
The idea is from Thomas FinsterbuschEngineer at Google from 2012-2014, experience with machine learning systems, user modeling and extensive Google X recommendations.
According to Finsterbusch, “Military systems with the same remote control capability cost more than $10 million and require more than 100 people per unit; the Cape solution one-thousandth the cost and only requires two people to manage multiple drones. Cape’s solution provides an ROI [retorno de la inversión] very high by allowing an external expert to perform complex anomaly detection on a high value asset or sensitive area in real time.”

AirMap: airspace management platform for drones
Sometimes drones do not allow entrepreneurs to see the forest.
While a long list of startups are dedicated to making drones and trying to find a commercial niche for them beyond agriculture, security and infrastructure control, AirMap is quietly dedicated to building the essential security infrastructure to introduce traffic patterns for autonomous vehicles and to secure airspace. It has focused on providing services.
AirMap is the global airspace management platform for drones, supporting more than 100,000 drone flights per day. Millions of drones, hundreds of drone manufacturers and developers, and hundreds of airspace managers and stakeholders turn to AirMap’s airspace services to fly safely and communicate with others in low-altitude airspace. It’s something like the drone airspace communications tower, but without the tower.
AirMap data and services are being integrated into drones, ground control stations and flight applications from drone manufacturers such as DJI, Intel, senseFly, 3DR and Aeryon Labs, expanding the reach of AirMap technology and solutions worldwide. All this in a legal scenario where the drones of courier companies or online retail giants like Amazon or Rakuten have not yet been regulated…
