@theslawek - Maybe a late respose, but you are correct: the MCU handles pipelining. The programmer does not explicitly utilize pipelining but can take it into account when coding in Assembly. For example, many MCUs will execute the instruction after a jump instruction because the true/false check for the jump occurs a few stages into the pipeline. A programmer can prevent a wasted instruction by swapping the order of the jump instruction and the one before it.
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.
