The device I have is very inaccurate unless it
is at room temperature :-( .
How about using the peak amplitude of the Wien displacement spectrum to determine the temperature rather than the rather crude method of incident energy? That would be very accurate assuming black body radiation.
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.
