"Nikola...good point! If machine learning is being used, give it another layer of information to parse data, and the system will be more effective. This is some very interesting research. I sent you an email, from emergentechrdi@gmail.com My web…"

Krzysztof Bosak commented on HeliStorm's blog post Amazon Prime Air
"Just wrote a paper to debunk Prime Air myths, go around patents, demonstrate prior art where applicable and proposed cleaner legal solution for airspace. Got fed up being regular worker at Amazon just because they hire in Poland only for lowest…"

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post MIT simulation system allows you design any configuration of drone (and know it will work)
"I wonder if you could pair this with a genetic algorithm to come up with some evolved aircraft."

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Visual obstacle avoidance with Centeye and Crazyflie
"For years now, on this site and others, I have been expressing my belief in micro UAS. The technology being packed into smaller, and smaller (and cheaper) packages is astounding. The one area where there seems to be room for significant improvement…"

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post RocketSpace/AT&T report on the future of drones
"Combine two through five, and, as I imagine, we will have small bird, and even insect sized aircraft capable of powering themselves through bio sources, working together to provide the capabilities of a larger system in a smaller collaborative…"

"Joe Renteria...same tought goes through my head. I mean...you hang a pair of fake testicles from your truck because your truck alone is not manly enough? Is that the logic? Way off topic, of course. Now, on a quadcopter, I can se how they might be…"

"Interesting. I have ideas, but never worked with 3D printing or design for 3D printing. Have done some CAD work in the past. May have to do some learning."

HeliStorm commented on Chris's blog post Queen B Robotics introduces the Exo360! 5 integrated 4K cameras for the ultimate VR experience
"I have thought, what if you have the, "raw data," as in video an IMU data saved for export and later post-processing. It could be stabilized and either distributed as 360 video, or edited down to normal, "2d," video with the the…"

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Bees bounce into things rather than navigate around them. How robobees could do the same
"I have been giving this some more thought, and I think there is a real potential for systems able to bounce around obstacles. One of my interests is search and rescue applications, but in particular the usage of smaller systems in wooded areas,…"

"Nature has engineered some very unique unmanned aerial systems. Self-guiding, self-fueling, self-manufacturing nano aircraft. It shows what is possible when you have billions of years to trial and error."

HeliStorm commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New version of APM-powered Quanum Nova copter from Hobby King
"Does anyone have the original, and can attest to build quality? It looks kind of cheap plastic toy, to me, but the rest of the specs seem pretty good. I may have to give it a try. Maybe put the guts on something else."

Monroe King replied to HeliStorm's discussion Interesting read in the group Micro Drone
"That is interesting isn't it. I'd like to see an SBIR for it."

HeliStorm replied to Monroe King's discussion Cameras for Micro Drones in the group Micro Drone
"I had considered piezoelectric before. Small, low energy, fast. What about something like DLP chips. Use the nano mirrors in reverse, rather than projecting images, focusing them on a sensor?"

Seek CompactXR: Inexpensive Longer Range Thermal Camera

Posted on November 10, 2015 at 5:59pm 12 Comments

I recently came across this new camera from Seek Thermal, which is the extended range version of their previous low cost system. The manufacturer claims a range of 1800 feet, which makes it interesting (in my mind) for search and rescue applications. I had previously considered the…

Nano Camera Quad

Posted on August 15, 2015 at 8:30pm 14 Comments

Smaller and cheaper. This is the way technology tends to move. Cheerson, who made the wildly popular CX10 nano quad, has upped the fun by adding a camera! While it is only .3mp, its hard to argue the engineering prowess to pull this off on a commercial product.…

Soon to be Released: Full HD Capable Micro Brushless Gimbal for 200 Sized Quads

Posted on February 22, 2015 at 10:00pm 35 Comments

RCLogger, the company who brought one of the least expensive mini brushless quads to market with the EYE One Xtreme, is now working on a micro-brushless gimbal for 200 sized quads. The gimbal will be capable of carrying the 1080p capable Mobius camera, a favorite among hobbyists for its size, quality, and price. The entire setup, including aluminum-framed brushless…
