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! ;-) "

"One other thing I just realized that it lacks is a camera CSI input. It's will be USB camera only."

"@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…"

"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…"

JB commented on Chris Anderson's blog post New Beaglebone Blue board designed for robotics
"It does have 2x PRU and a Core M3 MCU as well, so maybe it's time to port APM to one of them to free up the A8 CPU for imaging/video? Gary for more APM info have a look here and foolow the links to Mirko's…"

JB commented on Dustin Franklin's blog post NVIDIA Jetson TX2 Delivers Twice the Intelligence to the Edge
"Overall I liked the TX1. But is the TX2 backwards compatible with TX1 boards like the J120 from Auvidea, or will it need a new carrier?"

"Thx for the info LD. Will have to budget for a LW20 then! I think all technology can be improved with convergence. I was pretty sure you had already tried it. :-) Are you thinking of using an optical gimbal (or MEMS) in future products? With the…"

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…
