YOSHUA ELECTRONIC LICENCE PLATE (ID), BLACKBOX & COMMUNITY FOR DRONES
The YOSHUA solution is an IoT platform3 – patent pending – and represents an extremely clever bit of technology that communicates with the DroneMatrix cloud :
the YOSHUA Community. Y.O.S.H.U.A. = Your Operator System Help for UAVs
YOSHUA consists of three main components:
YOSHUA COMMUNICATOR (HARDWARE)
YOSHUA FLIGHT PLATFORM (COMMUNITY)
YOSHUA INSURANCE (AIRTIME - SUBSCRIPTION)
The YOSHUA COMMUNICATOR hardware is equipped with position- and motion sensors that enable the drone to be identified as well as to communicate its position and flight behaviour to flight control. The YOSHUA COMMUNICATOR is an electronic number plate combined with an intelligent black box for the drone. This enables the flight data to be monitored by flight control and any deviations can be rectified by communicating with the pilot. A logbook of the mission, containing flight data, will be compiled; this will enable a profile to be created per drone, per operator, per region, etc.
The YOSHUA FLIGHT PLATFORM will be responsible for a real time track & trace and will also provide feedback about the location awareness information:
weather conditions, presence of other nearby drones/airplanes, no-fly zones, obstacles…
YOSHUA INSURANCE, as covered through the subscription fee, provides protection against damage caused to third parties.
This insurance is based on flight minutes (AIRTIME).
