Japan: Japanese technology giant Sony is all set to take off into the drone market. The company is collaborating with a Tokyo startup called ZMP, which specialises in autopilot technology. And they are jointly starting a new company called Aerosense in August. But, the new venture will not be selling drones. Instead, it will be leasing UAVs to business customers for measuring, surveying, observing, and inspecting purposes. The move points toward Sony’s efforts to develop new business opportunities related to the Internet of Things.
