We would like to share the following result on aerial robotic navigation through obscurants. The test took place in a smoke-filled machine-shop environment.
At Terabee we did some intensive experiments with TeraRanger Tower and Pixhawk running ArduCopter. The purpose of the experiment was to explore the obstacle avoidance indoors using rangefinders only.
In our setup we used TeraRanger Tower with 8 sensors (in a…Continue
Really impressive demos from Skydio in Redwood City. Quad copter startups have been hit or miss & it looks like the same pile of plastic scrap that every startup besides Apple produces, but what they showed here was exactly what I wanted to do for years, with ground vehicles. It looks like it could really navigate…Continue
Thermal imaging camera for gas detection
Under certain circumstances, infra-red cameras are highly suitable for detecting gas escapes and the presence of gas in the air. They can be also helpful during tests on improving environmental safety. A thermal camera can detect…Continue
Intel Aero is a cool little drone for developers that can be configured for various tasks and applications.

So I have been working on this for a while now. It is designed for aerial photography/surveying. Carbon fiber flying wing, quite durable. Had an excellent vendor work on this (manufacturing here is much cheaper in India). Here are some specs:
Wingspan - 1.4 m
All up weight - 1.2 kg
Payload - 300 grams
Endurance - 40~50 mins ( Plans to experiment with li-on batteries to increase the…Continue
Dear Drone Community,
As you probably know, our wildlife and nature is in danger, only last year millons of hectares was devastated by wildfire in California, Europe, and Asia. If we don't do anything, the…Continue
