Reuters | February 26, 2019

A top U.S. business lobby in China said on Tuesday that a majority of its member companies favored the United States retaining tariffs on Chinese goods while Washington and Beijing try to hammer out a deal to end a months-long trade war. The American Chamber of Commerce in China also said that over the past year substantially more of its members want the U.S. government to push Beijing harder to create a level playing field for U.S. businesses.

American Robotics is Approved by FAA to Run Automated Drones without Human Operators

American Robotics | January 19, 2021

American Robotics, a main engineer of completely robotized business drone frameworks, turned into the primary organization affirmed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to work computerized drones without human administrators on location. The organization's Scout System™ highlights progressed acoustic Detect-and-Avoid (DAA) innovation that empowers its drones to keep a protected separation from other airplane consistently. By building up a layered, repetitive arrangement of security that incorporates exclusive specialized and operational danger alleviations, American Robotics has demonstrated that its robot based ethereal insight stage works securely in the National Airspace System (NAS), in any event, when it conducts trips Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) of the administrator. This endorsement speaks to a huge articulation point in the business drone industry. Earlier waivers and confirmations granted by the FAA required visual eyewitnesses (VOs) positioned along the flight way to keep eyes on the airspace consistently, or required other troublesome limitations, for example, foundation covering. Therefore, the worth and versatility of business drone use in the U.S. has, as of not long ago, been radically hindered or much of the time wiped out. “With these approvals, American Robotics is ushering in a new era of widespread automated drone operations,” said Reese Mozer, CEO and co-founder of American Robotics. “Decades worth of promise and projection are finally coming to fruition. We are proud to be the first company to meet the FAA’s comprehensive safety requirements, which had previously restricted the viability of drone use in the commercial sector. We are very grateful for the FAA’s willingness to work closely with American Robotics over the past four years on this precedent-setting authorization. With this set of approvals, American Robotics can begin safely operating our automated Scout platform for the benefit of the energy, infrastructure, agriculture, and security market verticals, helping unlock the projected $100 billion commercial drone market.”
