I agree Daleste. While the same may have slowed from June, a one-month change isn't really reflective of y-o-y growth. Still there are forecasts from the industry's sales to fall by 40-50% by a year from now. I'm not seeing the foundation of those forecasts with reports like this.
This really isn't much of a surprise. As previously reported by EET's Peter Clarke, TSMC announced last month that "third-quarter sales are set to be up between 3.3 and 5.2 percent from Q2." So month one was down from June. I suspect we'll see slightly stronger numbers for August and September
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
