Thanks Jacob, for a very interesting intro to this dev kit! I had a lot of fun doing the exercises and everything worked the way it was supposed to! I look forward to using what I learned here to do more experimenting with this board. Who knows, maybe someday I will actually develop a product using this or a similar part. Thanks again to everyone involved, including EE Times University and Digi-Key for supplying the dev kit for free!!!
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.
