"Brilliant write up, thank you for sharing!"

JB commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Intel cancels Edison, Joule boards
"@ Gary Intel support wasn't great but is was getting better and definitely usable. Performance wise the joule was actually really good, especially considering it's size (being about 1/10th the volume of TX2) plus there's limited…"

"@Gary +1!"

JB commented on Gary Mortimer's blog post No more $5 FAA fee, John Taylor wins his case.
"I suppose there's a Aussie perspective that is missing here. :-) The supposed intention of the rule was to make "flying things" safer. Paying $5 and registering people does nothing towards that IMHO, even if it might be preferred to a…"

JB commented on Gary Mortimer's blog post No more $5 FAA fee, John Taylor wins his case.
"Just proves that policy is not always lawful, despite the posturing and assumed authority by the departments. It's up to the people to stand up for their rights in order to enjoy the freedom and responsibility of self governance. Well done John!"

JB commented on Mauricio's blog post Aeromapper Talon surveys a whole island in a single flight
"Nice! Talons are sweet! Next time try a quadplane version and then you can launch from the same island VTOL style! :-) "

JB commented on Mirko Denecke's blog post BeagleBone Blue released, Linux-enabled autopilot for $80
"lol I think he'll be giving us a blood sample if we turn up with that thing, if he wants to or not! :-)  But I do fancy seeing a two wheeled balancing quad. The BBBlue would be the ideal candidate for a small version of it. The idea would…"

"Patrick...but but but I want a quadcopter,  self balancing  on two wheels tho...so I can drive up walls and across ceilings! ;-) "

JB commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New Beaglebone Blue board designed for robotics
"One other thing I just realized that it lacks is a camera CSI input. It's will be USB camera only."

JB commented on Rick Yonika's blog post Google wing, NASA greased lightning, move over....
"@LD I must admit I haven't actually thought much about the efficiency of the different control methods before but I'd imagine that thrust vectoring using the tilt servos is actually more efficient than modulating thrust from a static…"

JB commented on Rick Yonika's blog post Google wing, NASA greased lightning, move over....
"Rick No problems. We've been pondering these challenges for a while, and most of our experience is from optimizing quadplane performance, which are subject to the same dynamics.  LD If I may intrude on the question. The wing allows for…"

JB commented on Rick Yonika's blog post Google wing, NASA greased lightning, move over....
"Hi Rick In my opinion the propulsion weight is not as important a factor as getting the right prop size and pitch for efficient forward thrust. We get 1.7kg of thrust from 35g motors. and around 1kg from 18g motors, so there's plenty of…"

JB commented on Rick Yonika's blog post Google wing, NASA greased lightning, move over....
"Looks interesting  and something similar we've been working on for a few years. It's just missing an extra hover lift prop and then you can optimise the forward motors for forward flight, speed and range, because they are no longer…"

UAV Challenge - Medical Express 2018

Posted on March 5, 2017 at 11:30pm 2 Comments

Sponsors and Organisers

Here we go again!

Same place, same time in 2018, and mostly the same rules!

The main differences to last years event are:

  • 3 separate prizes depending on level of achievement
    • $25,000 for completing the mission with the highest points 
    • $25,000 for using type 2 autonomy (now being redefined as "no controller/user interference, but with constant comms link to controller)
    •  $25,000 to avoid Dynamic No Fly Zones (details…
