Pasadena Startup Releases Drone Fleet Management Software to Synchronize Drone Teams and Businesses

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. NVdrones, a Pasadena start-up that provides cloud-based software solutions for drone fleet management, today launched its mobile application, NVDash, that promises to bring drone management into the digital age.New commercial drone regulations, titled Part 107, are effective as of today. With the new regulations many expect a massive increase in U.S. commercial drone activity. Among other rule changes, any individual can become commercially licensed by taking an FAA-approved written test. Previously a private pilot’s license was required.“We estimate up to 40% of drone businesses currently use paper and pencil to monitor their organization,” said Emerick Varga, CEO of NVdrones. “In an industry that’s pushing technological limits each and every day, drone management tools lag far behind.”The company’s founders spoke with hundreds of drone pilots before they even wrote a single line of code for the app. During their research they found customizable checklists, real-time airspace and weather information, as well as team and equipment management, are must-have’s for any drone team. Over 500 companies deploying drones have signed up for their beta program, ongoing over the past 3 months.NVdrones separates itself from the competition by also analyzing high-quality equipment performance data. Varga explains they do this by analyzing the drone’s internal “black box” sensor data. “99% of commercial drones record crucial sensor data during every flight but there are insufficient tools to make sense of the data,” Varga said. “Established drone teams already use this data to get ahead of their competitors – now we’re bringing it to the rest of the industry.”The company’s technology also utilizes the AirMap Platform for best-in-class airspace intelligence. AirMap recently made their platform of APIs and SDKs for airspace services available to the drone industry. Other AirMap partners include Intel, DJI, 3DRobotics, Aeryon Labs, and more.“We built the AirMap Platform to help innovators like NVdrones build amazing applications for drones,” said Ben Marcus, CEO of AirMap. “We’re excited to see how NVdrones utilizes our SDK to help make drones part of everyday life.”Drone pilots can download the app and sign up to be a beta tester at nvdrones.com.About NVdronesFounded in 2014, NVdrones is a drone startup that creates software to manage drones efficiently and effectively. http://www.nvdrones.com/center_img Top of the News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Darrel Done BusinessVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Business News Pasadena Startup Releases Drone Fleet Management Software to Synchronize Drone Teams and Businesses From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, September 5, 2016 | 11:28 am Make a comment Herbeauty10 Reasons Why Selena Gomez Has Billions Of FansHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNutritional Strategies To Ease AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyGained Back All The Weight You Lost?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHere Is What Scientists Say Will Happen When You Eat AvocadosHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Celebrities People Don’t Love AnymoreHerbeautyHerbeauty Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

The Riskiness of Real Estate

The Index includes three major insights, noting that in addition to the riskiness of homes as an asset, also notes that home risk is mostly diversifiable. Additionally, the index states that homeowner portfolios are currently too risky, as portfolios have residential real estate risk exposures “far beyond the optimum, driven by the banality of very low down payment, high-leverage mortgages.”In general, a homeowner’s perception of their portfolio volatility is below the actual volatility measured by the index. Homeowners perceive their volatility to be around 9.0%, compared to actual volatility of 21%. Unison states that the  volatility of a home is on par with that of an equity index, “especially considering that a home buyer who borrows 95% of the value of their home is taking 20x leverage on this investment.” Additionally, homeowners have the majority of their equity tied up in their home. For the typical homeowner household, a majority of their $156.4k in net worth is locked up in $95.8k of home equity. Despite the benefits of diversifying a residential real estate portfolio almost the entire stock of the $27 trillion in residential real estate value is held as undiversified assets in individual homeowner household portfolios. Unision states that diversifying this risk away, an aggregate of $3 trillion of privately held, household annual portfolio volatility can be eliminated from the U.S. economy. In a given year, the worst 10% of homeowners will lose over 15% of the value of their home, or $32k for our typical U.S. household, but with large diversified portfolios of residential real estate, the worst 10% of these well-diversified portfolios can be expected to experience a loss of just over 2.0%.“Though it isn’t practical or desirable to fully absorb all residential real estate risk into a large diversified portfolio, this thought experiment demonstrates the amount of risk that could be reduced and value that could be unlocked if thoughtful financial engineering could facilitate the absorption of at least some of this homeowner household risk into a large institutional portfolio,” Unsion states.

Construction workers put to test in safety overhaul

first_imgConstruction workers put to test in safety overhaulOn 7 Mar 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article The construction industry is cracking down on workers whose health andsafety knowledge is not up to scratch in a bid to improve its absenteeismrecord.From April, newly trained workers in operational roles, such as scaffolders,bricklayers, roofers and plant operators, will have to pass a health and safetytest to get a skills card – proof they are trained to do their jobs.The 500,000 existing card-holders will have to pass the test, which they cantake at any driver theory test centre, to renew them.In the past, attending a course approved by the Construction IndustryTraining Board was enough to secure a card. “This will give us a genuine measure of the level of health and safetyawareness in construction so we can see where we are failing and where we needto concentrate resources,” said Keith Aldis, training director at TheConstruction Confederation.”The test will also drive up the amount of training people get, in thesense that you don’t take a driving test unless you have had enoughlessons.”Louis Parperis, head of HR at Costain, said he had seen enough peoplefalling asleep in health and safety inductions to welcome the news. But headded that the real challenge was to get people to put what they have learntinto practice. “People are always tempted to cut corners, particularly inan industry where you have a lot of subcontractors.”A third of all accidents reported to The Health and Safety Executive are inconstruction.

BenWillmott reports from the Anuman 2001 conference on employee relations whereemployers and trade unions gave ringing endorsements to partnershipThecreation of effective partnerships between employers and their staff can play akey role in improving bottom-line performance. This was the message from HRmanagers and employers speaking at the Anuman 2001 conference, in London, whotold delegates that involving employees in business objectives anddecision-making paid financial dividends.AlixThom, employee relations manager for BP, said that the firm had learned a lotabout effective consultation with its employees through its plans to change itsrescue and recovery system for staff on its off-shore oil platforms.BPhad proposed to replace the existing standby vessels, which are in a constantstate of readiness to respond to people falling into the water from one of theplatforms, with a combination of platform-based search and rescue helicoptersand rescue craft.Asa result of extensive consultation with employee representatives on BP’sbusiness unit forums, shortcomings in the proposal were highlighted and thetrial period for the new system was extended. Thom said, “We are trying tobuild a culture based on employee involvement and participation.”Itis a tremendous investment in terms of time but we really believe thatinvolving the work force is essential to delivering our business objectives andalso to recruiting and retaining the right people”.Theimportance of staff consultation was also emphasised by the experience ofMcVitie’s Tollcross factory in Glasgow.RichardWileman, the factory’s general manager, told the conference production had beenincreased and absenteeism reduced following the adoption of a partnershipagreement at the plant.Thiswas achieved through a project called the Resolve Process, which initiallyinvolved three two-day off site meetings between seven union representativesand seven managers. This gave employees the chance to put across their concernsand also demonstrated that there was a real desire among staff to be moreinvolved in the business.Resolvegroup surgeries, which ensure staff are consulted about decisions that effectthem, were subsequently established and have become a formal part of thefactory’s communication process.last_img read more
