Sony Mobile ventures into drone business
The organization has launched a separate company for venturing into drone business called Aerosense in a joint collaboration with the robotics company ZMP. However, with Aerosense Sony has not yet planned to sell the drone products; but instead provide different aerial related services like capturing images, and also perform cloud-based data processing, for survey, inspection, as well as observation of areas. This joint venture is to be formed this August, before which the company claims to leverage its camera, its telecommunication network, the robotics technology as well as ZMP’s automated driving.
This move by Sony Mobiles is likely to be one of the greatest initiatives in the Internet of Things Segment, thus helping the electronic giant to actively expand further. Earlier this year, the CEO of the organization has announced that the company is to focus its attention on its PlayStation gaming sector, Sony Music, Sony Pictures as well as on its devices business. Other than Sony, Google, Facebook as well as Amazon are some major companies which have shown their interest in using the drone for various purposes.However, Sony is expecting the telecommunication and land surveying organizations as their potential clients, for the services they are offering.
