CycloTech First Flight

Check out the first flight of the CycloTech technology demonstrator! The Austrian company based its “CycloRotor” propulsion system on the Voith Schneider Propeller design, which has been used in maritime applications for decades. CycloTech believes it could be used to create compact, maneuverable small drones and air taxis.

Making a 4G LTE Raspberry Pi Drone with Limitless Range

With standard drones your range to control it is bound by the range of the radio controller. This only gets you a couple miles. But what if your drone were connected to a mobile network? Well, then the power of limitless range of drone control is unleashed. Or at least as long as the battery held […]

Drones And AI Help Combat The San Francisco Bay’s Trash Problem

Here’s a great use case for AI and Drones to help with a common environmental problem. With drone photography, “we can track all of the trash in a creek, river, or stream, examine how it’s distributed, and then apply machine-learning algorithms to analyze those images as often as we want,” Hale says.

CalTech Uses PyTorch To Build Smooth Landing Drones

Here’s an interesting (and cool) use of AI on drones. Next-generation vehicles such as drones have a hard time landing. Drone controllers usually bring the drone near the ground and then drop it. How low the drone can be brought down depends on the aerodynamics of the drone and other reactions from the ground. Since […]
