China-based EHang launches a firefighting drone for high-rise fires 


“EHang 216Fs are expected to be deployed in urban fire stations to assist in firefighting within a 5km radius,” explains the EHang release. “EHang’s autopilot and centralized management technologies enable a fleet of EHang 216Fs to be remotely dispatched for a first response even before the firefighters arrive. This significantly shortens response time and can reduce casualties.”

On Friday, July 31, EHang Holdings Ltd. filed form 6-K (Report of Foreign Issuer) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission indicating that they will start construction immediately in Yunfu, of their new drone manufacturing plant.
