The concept of using Abstraction and then Automation to simplify the development process is a common one, but the detailed examples given here were well worth the read. Thanx for the reminder of how powerful these concepts are and how they can be used together for even more savings.
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.
