"1. When the human body and the ambient temperature are almost the same, a better TI camera with better sensitivity/resolution will only help marginally. The increased sensitivity will also lead to more false positives.
2. When/if a drone is able to…"
I mean absolute PTZ positioning. Meaning that you can go to a specific position, read the gimbal angle and camera zoom values via serial, and then later input (serial) those values to make the camera go back to the exact same position again."
"Looking at the crash video, something was obvious very wrong with the system. Lidar and radar should both have detected the person long before she got in front of the car regardless of lighting conditions, and finally the visual system should have…"
"My first thought was to build a blimp, giving you 'unlimited' flight time to solar charge batteries etc. My second was that Japan to USA is the same direction as Jet streams flow if I am not mistaken."
Depending on what message you are telling, I think it is a bit of a oversimplifications to say that RC are 'pilots' and robotics is 'developers'.
The RC community has always been extremely DIY oriented. For a very long time that was the…"
ICP5 is Input Capture Pin 5. Meaning it has an input capture interrupt that is tied to hardware Timer 5. So every time you have a signal change on the ICP5 pin (rising or falling edge depending on setup), you get a interrupt call that already…"
"In my experience from flying normal RC planes, the trick is to gain altitude as quickly as possible. From a birds perspective if you are capable of flying higher then you are the predator. Doing sharp turns etc. only makes the bird more persistent,…"
"While I agree about 4K not really being a must have resolution yet, you at least want something one step above 1080p to be able to do post stabilization etc. and still get a nice 1080p result. If they included 2.7K I would probably get one."
"Looks very promising. But Sony semi-pro products has a tendency to include some weird limitations to avoid competing with their own more expensive pro range of products. This time it's internal video recording resolution being limited to 1080p."
