Remotely controlled, fully autonomous aerial system

Hi guys, check out the second episode of our show with Grant Imahara from Mythbusters sponsored by Mouser and Intel. 

In this episode we go more in-depth into the electronics and systems developed specifically for this project. You will see our proprietary mechanical design for centering the drone and placing it on top of the charging pads.  

This project represents one of many uses for our remote drone deployment platform in the cloud - Global ARC

Interested to hear your thoughts.

I'm always fascinated why people make videos for the tech crowd, and then they don't talk about technology in any detail at all. But at least it's more relevant then the McDonald's deal.

Nice application. Would be nice to see it mention ArduPilot somewhere on the site. I say that since it

Looks like APM planner at 2:47 in the video. Also seems to be a 3DR modem and a minimOSD on the desk.

If it's remotely controlled, then there is Remote Controller. Consequently, this is not fully autonomous as it depends precisely on existence of said controller. Therefore this is not about Fully Auntonomous Systems.
