Sony has unveiled its Airpeak project at a Tokyo press launch, which it says will serve the 3Rs of ‘Reality, Real-time and Remote connectivity’, and imaging and focusing on AI robotics.
Sony adds that Airpeak will support the creativity of video creators to the fullest extent possible, aiming to contribute to the further development of the entertainment industry as well as to improved efficiency and savings in various industries. Airpeak will also promote this project to enable drone-use with the highest level of safety and reliability in the environments where this has been difficult in the past.
The Japanese electronics giant says it will soon be seeking partners to collaborate on the project. Meanwhile it wants feedback from existing drone users through co-creation activity ahead of the full launch of the project in the Spring of 2021.
At the press launch Sony noted how drones have led to “workflow effectivity and financial savings” within the industrial sector.
