Amazing!!!...how are these drones synchronized? Any idea if there is a wireless communication between these robots which is maintaining the order...or is there a central computer/controller that is commanding these drones and maintaining the order (most probably)? The control is also superb for these drone copters!
@Max: Very true!! I had a wish to make an RC airplane (I am fond of the flying machines). I told this to many of my friends and colleagues who possess similar interest, but alas...I could not fulfill that wish and it remained a dream. In 2006 I bought one RC plane (having two electric motors, not a gas engine one) but I hardly flown it 5-6 times before I crashed it to an advertising hoarding. I changed my plan to make a copter so that it hangs in the air and does not have to attain speed as an airplane to fly (less chance of crashing :))...but again it remained a dream. I could not find a stable toy so far. But now I see a lots happening around it and engineers making this a serious hobby/work. That is good!! Hope to own one if I could...I am sure now that making this on my own would remain a dream...because I guess I was never as serious as these folks!! :)
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
