Sony enters drone business with winged vertical takeoff craft

Sony is getting into the drone business with winged machines that take off vertically and could be used in everything from agriculture to construction.

The electronics giant's mobile arm said Wednesday it will establish a company next month called Aerosense with Tokyo-based robotics firm ZMP.

The joint venture will develop its own drones and offer drone services to business users starting in 2016. The services will include measuring, surveying, observing and inspecting facilities.
