Warren County Community College and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Study Burmese Pythons in Southern Florida #drone #droneday
Warren County Community College and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University researchers are working together to develop better methods for detecting the invasive species, via Unmanned Systems Technology:
Warren and Florida-based Embry-Riddle are combining their efforts in researching new methods of detecting and removing pythons in select southern Florida waterways, including the Everglades. The research project, which was enhanced with assistance of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the South Florida Water Conservation District, is deemed essential as the pythons have been causing excessive damage to the area’s ecosystem for over 10 years.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
