Smiley... Mach3 with 500 lines of G-code is more than enough... if you use elegant coding practices. For example: I used to write code that was 50 lines to do a a single drill routine. Then I found that that same 50 lines could be done with a single line. Tighten it up. (Mach3 is for windows only, btw)
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.
