Augmented Reality to Make Your Drone VLOS Compliant
Epson's Michael Leyva Discusses Compliance Solutions Under the New FAA's Visual Line of Sight Rule
|Epson's Proposed VLOS Solution|
"...We really believe that because it(glasses) is fully transparent, because we are using a new display method called OLED...OLED with smartglasses enables full transparency." - Michael Levya
SocialGreg's UptakeThe Epson / DJI option is intriguing but as Michael said in the interview, we will probably have to wait till the "end of the year." What will be needed is clarity from the FAA regarding interpretation of the operational section of Part 107. This entails exploratory letters and proposals to the FAA for interpretation.
On the technology side, once some the scenarios have gone through the FAA "sniff" test, is app development on the DJI side plus hooks that Epson needs to provide in their SDK. Providing a small window for drone FPV may work. Stay tuned.
