5G and Drones: What is 5G?

5 min. The global market for commercial drones has grown significantly over the last decade and is expected to grow from $17.8 USD in 2019 to $46.4 USD in 2025. According to our calculations, the number of functional drones will grow from 12.2 million last year to over 18.1 million in 2025, spurring flight authorities and society to seek solutions to overview all drone users and the traffic, especially in cities.

Passenger Drones

Passenger Drone Types and Specifications

4 min. Passenger drones, air taxis, flying cars and eVTOLs are just a number of the popular names currently being used to refer to unmanned vehicles which are being designed to carry humans in the future. With all these names being thrown around it’s becoming difficult to distinguish between what an air taxi is versus a flying car, whether there can be one name for all of these devices and if so, why all these different names are being used interchangeably? The answer, as always, lies in the details. All of these platforms have one main thing in common: they are designed to carry humans. Therefore, the term that most accurately describes them under one umbrella is passenger drones.

3 min. Our inaugural Drone Applications database is DRONEII’s answer to the many questions about the nature of drone applications that we regularly receive from our clients. It is a comprehensive overview of current and past use cases of drones in all industry sectors. In the report, the DRONEII team analysed over use cases, conducted in over 100 different countries and by over 80 different manufacturers.

Drone Energy Sources

Drone Energy Sources

6 min. To push the boundaries of drone flight performance, batteries must become smaller and lighter. It appears that we reached a certain limit when it comes to power density. Lithium-Polymer (Li-Po) and Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) batteries have become very small and affordable, mainly driven by the mobile phone industry. This led to a wide adoption and today it is fair to say that the great majority of commercial unmanned aerial vehicles uses batteries as a power source (~96%).
