Sensors for drones and robots: market opportunities and technology revolution – Pierre Cambou, Senior Analyst, Yole Développement

Drones and robots have slowly evolved beyond their military and industrial core markets and are emerging into mainstream applications. Join us for the webcast, and understand this trend ahead of the curve, learn about the key importance of sensors for drones and robots, to be able to spot the opportunities in terms of market and technologies.

New miniaturized integrated sensors for prosumer drones: the example of Sequoia in Precision Agriculture Yannick Lévy, VP of Corporate Business Development, Parrot

As the drone market continues to grow, regulators are considering the weight as the most important aspect with respect to safety and operations. Rather than increasing the size and weight of drones, how about decreasing the size and weight of the payload ? Parrot Sequoia is the first Gopro-size multispectral & visible sensor available on the market. It is offered with different software and cloud-based solutions for analyzing the data and transform it into useful business-wise advice for famers and crop consultants.

Semiconductor Innovations and STMicroelectronics Speeding up Revolution of Drones Xavier Baraton, Strategic Business Development Director, Consumer Robotics and Smart City, Greater China and South Asia, Asia Pacific Region. STMicroelectronics

Drones occupy a growing space in the robotics industry, bridging gaps between toys, consumer and professional flying systems. Many advanced functions existing in Internet of Things and mobile devices are already found into drones, from processors to connectivity, sensors to vision computing, power management to motor control, with similar challenges of performance, cost and integration. The Drones revolution is enabled by the semiconductors and STMicroelectronics innovations, with strong interaction from the IoT and the mobile electronics experience.
