How many cycles does the M4's FPU would take for a floating point operation? DOes it perform the floating point operations in the FPU by default or does it need speacial instructions ? If it need speacial intstructions how many cycles would a floating point multiplication would take when not using FPU?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
