Join us for our first hack/race day at the new Oakland warehouse location for DIY Robocar events.
There are three tracks:
1) A RGB lane track, modeled after the FormulaPi track:
2) A white-line track for 1/10th scale cars, which is designed…Continue

At the end of 2015, our UAV research lab at the French Civil Aviation University took part to an atmospheric research project with Meteo-France (CNRS-GAME and ENM) teams at the Atmospheric Research Center of Lannemezan (in the south of France).
This project, named…Continue
Our research group (Ofer Eldad, Andrew Alexander, and Christian Claudel) at the University of Texas at Austin has implemented a supervisory control algorithm we developed to protect the flight envelope with either human control or autopilot.
Our test platform is the Bormatec Maja shown below:
The basic idea of the supervised control…Continue

Hi guyz, just wanted to share my latest work with you and conclude the Defiance fpv airframe development series.
Frankly it's been a bumpy road till here but I wouldn't change a bit.
In 2012 I kinda got obsessed with fpv and quadcopter designs so I started reading, learning and drawing few ideas, going on and off the…Continue

Lately, a lot of companies have commercialized their own RTK GPS receiver. On this blog I will provide information about accurate landings based on an AsteRX-m UAS receiver which works on L1 and L2 frequency.
I’ve tested landings with an f450 DJI frame with the following setup:
It's been almost a decade since I launched DIY Drones (March 2007) and we've both grown hugely as a community and an industry in the intervening years. Drones work great, they're cheap and widely available, and both the the Dronecode and ArduPilot development communities that got their start here are doing amazing work to advance the technology, which is now at pro/aerospace…Continue
An architect studying at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain, has today released details of a design for the drone transportation hub of the future. This project is unique for two reasons - the first is that the design repurposes a disused bullfighting ring from the early 1900s, and the second is that he has released the design and associated models to the community for comment, modification and…Continue

Workswell WIRIS 2nd gen is…Continue
This could be a record breaking. The above video shows a demo with Andruav to actually control a RC Car from LA in Cairo using Andruav, the distance is 12,193km 7576 miles between the driver in LA & the car in Cairo.
The demo was done in my home, and the car is pretty fast, so a caution was required when controlling it…Continue
I read this on the newspaper today and i think this is one interesting genius way to land a UAV (the bird style).
These researchers from the University of Bristol and BMT Defence Services did a great job :-D well done!
The article you can read it here …Continue
Swift Navigation, the San Francisco-based startup building centimeter-accurate GPS technology that will power a world of autonomous vehicles, is proud to announce that two of its co-founders, Fergus Noble…Continue
For decades, NASA has used computer models to simulate the flow of air around aircraft in order to test designs and improve the performance of next-generation vehicles.
At NASA’s Ames Research Center in…

Here is another take on our wearable control tray format, this time with an embedded Win tablet PC that does it all for you. It has the same footprint as our previous trays (e.g. http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/fold-up-gcs-with-android-telemetry), but this one has more of a…Continue
