Smartphone chipset maker Qualcomm has introduced the world’s first 5G and AI-enabled drone platform, showing the world the dream of 5G drones. On which high-performance drones with based next generation will be made. This drone will consume less power. In such a situation, Qualcomm-based 5G drones will be able to fly long. Drones are known as Unmanned Aircraft UAVs. The Flight RB5 5G platform has been built by Qualcomm, on which commercial and industrial drones will be made. Drones can prove to be very helpful in the direction of intelligence solutions. The drone will come with a Qualcomm QRB5165 processor, build-up of Qualcomm technology, and the latest IoT offering.
Will be equipped with these features
The Qualcomm Flight RB5 5G platform aims to develop enhanced autonomy and intelligence features for drone development that will come with premium connected flight capability. 5G network testing is being done by Qualcomm in collaboration with Verizon. This laptop will come with high-speed 5G mmWave connectivity. It will offer Wi-Fi 6 connectivity with 5G. Drones can be used for surveillance, topography mapping, construction progress tracking, security surveillance. It will come with an IoT sensor.
Drone Rules 2021
- The new rules for drones will not apply to defense i.e. Navy, Army, or Air Force. The new rules will apply to all other drone flights.
- All drones will have to be digitally registered. Along with this, the presence of all drones and their flight will have to be informed.
- Drones can be fitted with nanodevices weighing 250 grams or less, microdevices from 250 grams to 2 kilograms. Small drones will weigh from 2 kilograms to 25 kilograms. Medium (medium) drones can be from 25 kilograms to 150 kilograms.
- Larger UAVs will be in the range of 150 kg to 500 kg. UAVs weighing more than 500 kg will comply with the Aircraft Rules, 1937.
- An institution or individual will have to obtain a certificate of competency to fly a drone, which may be issued by the Quality Council of India or any institution authorized by them/the Central Government.
- Each drone must have a Unique Identification Number (UIN), which can be self-generated through the
- Digital Sky platform. UIN is mandatory for all new and pre-existing UAVs.
- The transfer or de-registration of drones can be done through the respective digital form.
Violation of rules will attract a fine of one lakh
If there is any lapse in compliance with the rules, action will be taken under the provisions of the Aircraft Act, 1934. Under this, a fine of up to one lakh may be imposed. These rules will replace the Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) rules notified earlier in March 2021. Several changes have been made to the rules after the last edition. People were given time till August 5 to express their opinion on the draft rules. The final draft is scheduled to be published on 15 August 2021.
