According to a filing with the US Patent & Trademark Office, Apple is working on a high-tech modem for drones, officially called the “EU Modem for Drones with Flight Path and 3D Wireless Environment Signal Quality Information.”
Today we see drawings from a new DJI patent showing what seems to be a new DJI FPV camera. Will DJI finally release its own DJI FPV drone as well? Let’s take a closer look.
Breaking news: DJI just scored a big win in the patent dispute with Autel Robotics. In a news update on the website from Finnegan, the law firm that represents DJI in this matter, it was announced that:
The Commission is unlikely to enforce any exclusion order or cease-and-desist order based on the three invalid patents. DJI’s sales in the U.S., therefore, will not be affected by Autel’s claims.
This must be very welcome news for DJI as it first seemed that the drone maker had lost the case versus Autel on at least US Patent No. 9, 260,184, which seems to have affected the propeller mount design of the DJI Mavic 2 Air.
Steptoe has secured a significant trial victory for Autel Robotics USA at the US International Trade Commission (ITC). On March 2, the chief administrative law judge of the ITC found that SZ DJI Technology Co. Ltd. and seven related entities (together known as “DJI”), the world’s largest maker of consumer drones, violated Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, by importing and selling drones that infringe US Patent No. 9, 260,184 belonging to Autel.
