Fun read from The Drone Girl:
DG: I’m guessing the drones all are flying pre-programmed flights — there isn’t someone actually flying them, right?
CH: The drones navigate autonomously, piloting themselves, only supervised by a human operator. To navigate autonomously, these drones require a reliable method for determining their position in space.
DG: I was going to say, I’m guessing you’re not able to rely on GPS since the drones perform indoors.
CH: Since GPS is usually not available indoors, Verity Studios has built a proprietary indoor localization method.
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.
