senseFly's new eBee UAV
The eBee has a wingspan of 96 centimeters (37.8 inches) and weighs in at 630 grams (22 oz)
Once on site the eBee can be launched by hand, after which it will autonomously follow a flight path mapped out in advance by the user, via the included eMotion 2 software
Three years ago, Swiss sensor manufacturer senseFly released its Swinglet CAM unmanned aerial vehicle. Priced around US$10,600, the little aircraft can follow a pre-programmed flight path or be piloted by remote control, and uses its built-in 12-megapixel camera to create aerial maps, or keep tabs on things like wildlife, crops and traffic. Now, based on its experiences with the Swinglet CAM, senseFly is about to release a new UAV known as the eBee.
