Drone crash testing with 600 UAVs in Asia

With the increase use of drones and delivery UAVs in the making, drone safety is a concern. That is why drone crash tests are necessary for simulating worst-case scenarios. Drone tests with dummies have already been conducted in the US, but now Asian countries like Singapore and China have taken testing a step further by deliberately crashing hundreds of UAVs. Overall, drones are created to be safe, but these tests were done to find out just how much damage they can cause in extreme situations.

Crashing 600 drones!

Researchers from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore used nearly 600 drones to extensively test potential drone damage, according to The Straits Times. UAVs that weighed anywhere from 2.2 pounds to 20 pounds were dropped onto dummies from heights of about 10 feet to 30 feet. The drones also flew into the dummies from various distances and angles. Besides recording damage, data was used to develop an air traffic system for drones.
