Spiri kickstarter takes care of safety issues

It's great to see people taking safety into consideration with these flying lawn mowers.

Not only is there physical safety with the carbon fibre prop ribbons but the developers intend to take care of safe autonomous flight.

It has an ARM Cortex A9 running linux as well as a separate flight processor, 4GB of on-board storage and tons of sensors:

  • GPS
  • Optical flow camera
  • HD camera
  • Acoustic altimeter
  • Pressure / temp sensor
  • 3-axis accelerometer
  • 3-axis gyro
  • 3-axis magnetometer

The project hopes to accelerate the development of flying applications by making it easier for developers to focus on those applications rather than worrying about the flight.

  • that first guy is weird, something is definitely wrong with him

  • Interesting...although in that form factor (small size) I'm wondering about flight times and payload capability.  It would be interesting to see the Spiri "brain" be available separately for installation onto larger rigs with greater capabilities. 

  • Slick pitch. Good job.
