6. SOUNDBITE: (Korean) Robert Lee, Robotlink Incorporated President:
“Unlike existing small-sized drones, this drone (Petrone) has more than control functions. It is a drone with artificial intelligence equipped in its small-sized body with high-quality functions such as an atmospheric pressure sensor, camera and camera tracking function, which usually can only be found in large, high-priced drones. Also, this is the first drone equipped with open source sensors which enables functions like free pattern flight control and voice recognition and allow users to control the drone in whatever way they want.”

11. SOUNDBITE: (Korean) Cheon Bong-kyu, department manager at Extreme Engineering System (EXENS):
“This drone is differentiated from other drones in terms of communication method as the drone uses Wi-Fi for communication (existing drones use radio frequency). Also, we have made this drone to be able to land precisely by using the three ultrasonic wave sensors in the landing device mounted on top of the drone. In the future we will add functions through which the drone can replace or charge its battery by itself.”

13. SOUNDBITE: (Korean) Chun Sang-hyun, Visitor
“I just came to Busan with my child for a vacation, and I saw (the drone exhibition) on the news. So I came here without much expectation, but I really liked it because I got to see very diverse and specialised drones. Also, there were many simulation booths for children so we could enjoy the exhibition without being bored.”
14 . Various of people watching “Xiro Xplorer” camera-mounted drone
15. SOUNDBITE: (Korean) Park Ye-rin, college student:
“I came here with my professor as a field trip to take part in a programme at the exhibition. I did not know anything about drones before I came here. But through this drone exhibition, I could further my knowledge about drones. Also, I have made this ‘Da Vinci propeller’ here. This drone exhibition has provided me an opportunity to expand my knowledge in the science field. I like it because I’ve been able to learn about a different area.”
