Rutgers Q&A with E. A. Elsayed #drone #droneday

Third

From Rutgers Today:

Elsayed has led design teams in the construction of small unmanned aircraft systems. He is a frequent keynote speaker at national and international conferences and is the recipient of many awards. They include the William Mong Distinguished Lecturers Award and the David F. Baker Research Award from the Institute of Industrial Engineers for research contributions to the discipline of industrial engineering, as well as a Senior Fulbright Award. Rutgers Today talked with Elsayed about the future of drones and the summer course he will be teaching.

Q. What are drones and what are they used for?

Drones refer to aircraft that are either controlled from a ground station by a pilot or autonomously programmed to follow a specific flight plan. They vary in size, weight, travel time, payload and purposes. In military applications, for example, they are used in situations where manned flight is considered too risky or difficult, such as their use in reconnaissance and surveillance as well as their use, when armed, in targeting objects or individuals. The civilian applications are numerous, ranging from road traffic monitor and accident assessments to mosquito control and pesticide spraying, to examining miles of above-ground pipelines for oil or methane gas leaks, corrosion or damage.

Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
