Patrick Poirier commented on andre van calster's blog post obstacle avoidance using a convolution neural network
"Bonjour André, That is quite good !!  It makes the concept a real time avoidance system, even without the Movidius. The gain with Movidius  (5X) is less than what Intel's Marketing  is pretending with... ''one…"

"Yes I confirm that I removed your blog from ArduPilot because it was not related to the forum discussion.  Lets make it clear, a blog about how to build a  twin engine console for a flight simulator software is not a project that is…"

Patrick Poirier commented on Kyle's blog post Detailed Inspection of 18km, 138kV Transmission Line by Automated Drone
"Interesting alternative for aerial inspection, I have few questions: "Inspection time reduced by 85%, inspection cost reduced by 80%."  I assume this cost reduction is based on aerial inspection exclusively, so you compare a drone…"

"Bonjour André, Looking at the video , I see you are using dronet  https://github.com/uzh-rpg/rpg_public_dronet for training on a fly/stop scenario which is the best strategy for testing. The speed seems pretty good on the PC (I would say…"

"Hello Curt If you look on the table above you can see that UART2 is not the default mapping, it is SPI0. You need to configure PINS in order to get Uart2 exposed. Loo at the way we remap…"

"Hi Patrick, Hopefully you don't mind me asking a pocketbeagle question?  Are you using /dev/ttyS2 in your system?  I have ttyS4 working great on my pocketbeagle, but I've been trying all day to get ttyS2 to talk with zero…"

"Hi Patrick, ok I do have a couple questions.  Sorry if any of this is stated obviously and I missed it.  How many PWM outputs can the pocketpilot support?  I see 4 obviously for quad copter use, but can you do more than that? …"

"Hello Mateusz, Yes I setted the distance to 1 Meter so I can ''pratcice'' in my garage. The Tower is a great product and the integration as a PROXIMITY driver within ArduPilot makes it even more performant. The idea behind the…"

Mateusz Sadowski commented on Patrick Poirier's blog post Avoidance Experiments with the POC and Benewake TFMIN
"Impressive! Looks like you had some very close calls, probably due to sensor range. At Terabee we were doing lots of indoor flight experiments with TeraRanger Tower. We will try to share same results in the following days, maybe we can exchange…"
