Singapore is looking to expand its use of cameras and technology to better support law enforcers and first responders. These include plans to tap sensors, video analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and drones to ease manpower shortages and improve service efficiencies.

The DJI FPV differs from the company's other drones in one key way – rather than flying it via a video feed on a controller screen, you instead get an on-board view thanks to some bundled, head-mounted goggles.

In this sense, the DJI FPV is similar to racing drones, which have become increasingly popular with the rise of professional competitions like the Drone Racing League (DRL). But DJI's new 'ready-to-fly' drone is less targeted at racing, and more towards beginners who want to try the FPV experience while shooting 4K aerial videos. These are the … [Read more...] about The DJI FPV drone takes you into the skies with its 4K camera and video goggles
