Watch Sony’s New Aerosense Drone Take Off and Take Flight

Sony announced in July that it was partnering with Robotics firm ZMP to create an all-purpose drone for business customers to do things like inspecting facilities, surveying and measuring land and properties, and so on. And over the weekend, the joint venture, known as Aerosense, posted the first video of a prototype drone taking off and flying around.1-1 Despite having wings and flying like a small jet, the Aerosense drone uses its rotating turbines to effect vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), similar to a Harrier fighter jet. This eliminates the need for any kind of landing strip, enabling the craft to be used in areas like cities and forests where large open spaces aren’t always close at hand.1-3Aerosense hopes to sell the drone in 2016, once testing and manufacturing have been figured out. The AS-MCO1-P is a quadcopter, and is much smaller and lighter. It’s also been loaded up with a camera, GPS, and navigation system; Aerosense doesn’t make clear whether the DTO1-E is equipped with the same features, or whether the two drones will serve different functions.
