Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I was bought up with RC cars and worked on embedded systems in my early IT career. I have always been a proponent of the make revolution and the democratisation of technology. Having children reintroduced me into the world of UAV and I haven't looked back. My interest is primarily around autonomous control augmenting ground based humanitarian activities. However I have quickly learned that once you go beyond gps 'point and shoot' control, it gets a whole lot more interesting. And that's where my interest lies, just outside of the standard flying envelope, so to speak.
