Proposed FAA Commercial UAS Rules

From IEEE Spectrum: Unmanned aircraft must weigh less than 55 lbs. (25 kg). Visual line-of-sight (VLOS) only; the unmanned aircraft must remain within VLOS of the operator or visual observer. At all times the small unmanned aircraft must remain close enough to the operator for the operator to be capable of seeing the aircraft with vision unaided by any device other than corrective lenses. Small unmanned aircraft may not operate over any persons not directly involved in the operation. Daylight-only operations (official sunrise to official sunset, local time). Must yield right-of-way to other aircraft, manned or unmanned. May use visual observer (VO) but not required. First-person view camera cannot satisfy “see-and-avoid” requirement but can be used as long as requirement is satisfied in other ways. Maximum airspeed of 100 mph (87 knots). Maximum altitude of 500 feet above ground level... (full article)

DRIVE CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT WITH DATAXCHANGE MACHINE MONITORING

DRIVE CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT WITH DATAXCHANGE MACHINE MONITORING

Disparate machines, each with a unique control system and communication protocol with varying ages, can create challenges for manufacturers driving continuous improvement initiatives. There is often limited visibility to make data-driven decisions that can impact every aspect of a manufacturing organization. The Scytec DataXchange machine monitoring solution resolves these issues by capturing real-time, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) data from a variety of equipment - from CNCs and PLCs, to robots and manual machinery - through universal machine connections. Leveraging automated data collection, DataXchange exposes and synthesizes equipment data to give your teams full transparency on the shop floor to transform your business into a smart factory.
