Sony has updated the development status of its upcoming drone, Airpeak, announcing that they are combining their expertise in imaging, sensing and AI robotics technology in a continuous development of Airpeak. At CES 2021, Airpeak was unveiled as a drone system designed with professional filming in mind.

Moving on to development updates, we are currently in the process of conducting various field tests and evaluations. The Austrian mountains shown in the CES 2021 video were covered in snow, and the test course was thick with fog. These conditions were actually a lucky accident, and not something we had planned for, but it has meant that we can go on to test the accuracy of Airpeak’s sensing and control functions in various different weather conditions.

We also recently visited the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to test wind resistance, using a prototype. We are aiming for a high-level of wind resistance as we continue developing Airpeak’s frame.
