These challenges with a limited time from are perfect! We need more of these for MCU and FPGA based designs too. Arduino is a perfect example platform. Vendors should be happy to show what a designer can do in just a few hours!
I'm curious to see what they come up with. I got a chance to use it for my spinning beachball of doom earlier this week and found it quite easy. I did feel as though the features might have been a bit limited, but it got me though my project without issue!
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.
