Hello_World_PRENAV_Drone_MovieCheck out this great little film by drone startup PRENAV, which took home the LOL WTF prize at the Flying Robot International Film Festival last night. According to Nathan Schuett, CEO of PRENAV, the team was looking for a way to demonstrate precision drone flight in a visually appealing way. “We decided to try something that had never been done before – drawing accurate shapes, letters and animations in the sky with a drone – and we’re very pleased with how ‘Hello World’ turned out.” Fun stuff.

 

According to a recent press release,

PRENAV and partner Hawk Aerial today announced that they have been granted the first Section 333 exemptions from the Federal Aviation Administration to operate the PRENAV precision drone system.  PRENAV drones are capable of autonomously navigating in complex, cluttered, or GPS-denied environments.  The two companies plan to use the system to perform close proximity visual inspections of cell phone towers, wind turbines, bridges, oil tankers, industrial boilers, and other large structures.
