Qualcomm eyes drones for soaring future

US: Reeling from the waning demands of a matured market, mobile chip giant, Qualcomm, is now betting on drones. The company has introduced Snapdragon Flight, which is a 'system-on-a-chip' built specifically for flying robots. This chip contains a digital signal processor for real-time flight control, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. The chip is based on Snapdragon 801 processor, which is found in most high-end Android phones. Chinese drone-maker Yuneec is going to be the first company to use the new chip. It should be noted that Yuneec just got a $60 million funding from Intel.
