This new DJI drone is designed just for enterprise, and even folds into a backpack

 

DJI has unveiled its new series of Matrice 30 drones which are specifically designed for the enterprise will still being able to easily fit into a backpack.

The drone maker's M30 series is actually available in two versions, the M30 and the M30T. While the M30 sports a 48MP megapixel 1/2” CMOS sensor camera with 5x – 16x optical zoom, a 12 megapixel wide-angle camera, 8K photo and 4K/30 fps video resolution and a laser rangefinder that can give precise coordinates of objects up to 1,200m away, the M30T also packs in an additional 640x512 px radiometric thermal camera.

At the same time, DJI Enterprise's new drones are controlled by a redesigned remote control and run on the company's upgraded Pilot 2 software which significantly improves the flight experience. These new enterprise drones also integrate with the new DJI FlightHub 2 fleet management software as well as the DJI Dock for collaboration with both remote and unattended operations.

Senior director of corporate strategy at DJI, Christina Zhang provided further insight in a press release on how organizations will be able to use its new enterprise drones to fly beyond visual line of sight, saying:

“DJI Enterprise is devoted to researching and developing new drone solutions explicitly designed to revolutionize work, helping everyday heroes in their missions saving lives, maintaining physical infrastructure, and preserving the natural environment. With the outstanding performance, transportability and ease of use of the DJI Matrice 30 drone and its perfect integration with the DJI FlightHub 2 Fleet Management Cloud Software and DJI Dock, DJI is stepping into the future for our Enterprise customers who will be able to enter the autonomous solutions space, creating possibilities to fly beyond visual line of sight with the appropriate regulatory permissions in place.”

DJI Enterprise's new flagship offering

As DJI's M30 features IP55 ingress protection, the company's new enterprise drone can still provide outstanding performance even in harsh environments with heavy rains, high winds, high altitudes, icy and snowy conditions and extreme temperatures from -20° C to 50° C. 

The DJI M30 also provides an improved first-person view pilot camera for low light conditions with built-in redundancies and backup systems, three-propeller emergency landing, a Health Management System and six-way obstacle avoidance sensors. Meanwhile, its four-antenna OcuSync 3 Enterprise transmission ensures strong redundancy and it aven supports LTE link backup.

Unlike other commercial drones, the DJI M30 has a foldable integrated lightweight design and has a 3.7kg take-off weight so that it is easy to unfold, store and carry anywhere. It also has a new self-heating TB30 battery design which supports at least 400 charge cycles and allows for a 41-minute flight time. The DJI M30 can even be recharged quickly as its smart BS30 charging case can refill its battery from 30 percent to 90 percent in just 30 minutes.

As the DJI M30 and M30T are enterprise devices, they also support offline updates where firmware updates can be completed entirely offline, local data mode which acts like “airplane mode” and keeps data stored on the drone itself and SD card AES encryption to protect all of the photos, videos and flight logs stored on the device's microSD card.

The DJI M30 will be available for purchase directly through the DJI online store as well as through authorized DJI Enterprise dealers.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
