Drones Lighting Prescribed Fires In New Conservation Effort
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s NIMBUS Lab has unveiled new fire-starting drone technology used for lighting prescribed burns. Fire plays an important role in maintaining the health of prairie ecosystems, and the use of drones in this effort could play an important role in conservation efforts- as well as reducing fire related casualties.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
