Dronewatch launches the world’s first AI drone knowledge base: ChatUAV

Dronewatch has announced the launch of the world’s first AI-powered drone knowledge base, called ChatUAV. This innovative tool is designed to answer a wide range of drone questions, ranging from basic information for hobbyists to complex regulatory issues for professionals. ChatUAV has been trained with thousands of articles, various European policy documents and other relevant sources.

Extensive knowledge base

ChatUAV distinguishes itself by its extensive knowledge base, built up by training the AI with thousands of articles published on These articles provide in-depth insights into a variety of topics. In addition, ChatUAV’s knowledge has been enriched with practical tips and techniques for both amateur and professional drone photographers.

Furthermore, ChatUAV is equipped with extensive information about the European drone regulations that regulate flying with drones. These regulations form the framework for all drone operations in Europe. In addition, ChatUAV has access to EASA documentation. This information provides ChatUAV users with a comprehensive overview of safety regulations, procedures and operational restrictions faced by European drone operators.

Another applicable element in ChatUAV’s knowledge base is a whitepaper about urban applications of drones. This paper provides valuable insights into how drones can be used for various applications, from public safety to infrastructure management. This resource is particularly relevant given the increasing role of drones in urban environments. Finally, ChatUAV has in-depth knowledge of drone-related privacy aspects.

Making information accessible

“Thanks to the richness of these data sources, ChatUAV has the potential to become an indispensable resource for anyone in the drone industry, whether hobbyists, professional pilots or policy makers. The launch of ChatUAV is in line with Dronewatch’s aim to make specialist information accessible to everyone,” says Dronewatch founder Wiebe de Jager.

The beta version of ChatUAV is only available to paying users of ChatGPT, but the aim is to make the application available for free. The chatbot is still in development and will be further trained with relevant information in the near future. Despite careful training, Dronewatch cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the answers given.
