DJI’s drones to home in on spe­cific in­dus­tries

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS - By FANFEIFEI fanfeifei@chi­nadaily.com.cn

DJI In­no­va­tion Tech­nol­ogy Co, China’s largest com­mer­cial drone man­u­fac­turer, is plan­ning to launch drones for spe­cific in­dus­tries in­clud­ing traf­fic, con­struc­tion, elec­tric power, se­cu­rity pro­tec­tion and dis­as­ter re­lief, af­ter un­veil­ing its first agri­cul­tural drone last year.

The Shen­zhen-based DJI re­leased an in­te­grated aerial zoom cam­era named Zen­muse Z30 on Mon­day, en­abling com­pa­nies to col­lect pre­cise vis­ual data from a dis­tance of up to 200 me­ters.

De­signed to seam­lessly in­te­grate with DJI’s Ma­trice air­frames, Zen­muse Z30 of­fers 30x op­ti­cal zoom and 6x digital zoom, and­can au­to­mat­i­cally ad­just its fo­cal length to give an en­larged view when point­ing the cam­era at the ob­ject to be in­spected.

Paul Xu, the com­pany’s di­rec­tor of en­ter­prise so­lu­tions, said: “Users can con­duct mil­lime­ter-level in­spec­tions with­out the need to fly close, en­sur­ing high flight safety while in­creas­ing speed and ef­fi­ciency,” em­pha­siz­ing that the cam­era un­locks new­pos­si­bil­i­ties for in­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tions.

Xu said apart from the con­sumer-level drones, which are mainly used in the en­ter­tain­ment field for such things as aerial pho­tog­ra­phy, demand for in­dus­try-level drones is large in China, with wider ap­pli­ca­tions such as farm­ing, con­struc­tion, se­cu­rity pro­tec­tion and dis­as­ter re­lief.
