We'll go through on how we started from scratch watching Youtube clips on DIY drones, using 3-D printed parts from our Makerbot, to sourcing parts from Alibaba...all the way to finally racing our self-built mini-FPV quadcopters with each other. Think Star Wars Pod Racing but with FPV drones!n
An exhibition of projects and activities of Innovation Lab @Ross, an academy for advanced high school students in science, mathematics, engineering, technology, and media, located in East Hampton NY.
Ask the GPS (and GNSS) Trimble experts questions about the Global Positioning System and the Global Navigation Satellite System. L1/L2/L5 GPS, L1/L2 GLONASS, E1/E5 Galileo... How all these can be useful for your project.
Unmanned systems are a burgeoning technology with numerous humanitarian applications. At Maker Faire, I'm demonstrating the use of small unmanned aerial systems in search & rescue and precision agriculture.
The SBS iGEM team is using synthetic biology, an emerging field with the potential to transform how we interact with nature, to reinvent the plane in the hope of making one that is biodegradable and ecologically unobtrusive.
We exhibit a 1/5 scale personal flying vehicle that combines a tricycle and a quadcopter. This can run on the public road, take off from everywhere, switch those motions seamlessly, and also be controlled by iPhone.
