Our new laser cutter arrived today. It is second hand cutter but there is no problem for us, because a laser cutter including only 2 step motor, a laser tube and a driver board. I fixed the lens holders and mirrors and done!
The Flying Machine Arena (FMA) is a portable space devoted to autonomous flight. Measuring up to 10 x 10 x 10 meters, it consists of a high-precision motion capture system, a wireless communication network, and custom software executing sophisticated algorithms for estimation and control. The motion capture system can locate multiple objects in the space at rates exceeding 200 frames per second.
This is a program to stabilize a multicopter (copilot), runs on microcontroller like Arduino or Teensy++ and only a wii motion plus, no other electronics needed. These project started April, 2010. Supported are planes, tricopter, quadricopter (+ and x config), hexacopter (penta and coaxial). The self-leveling capability helps when doing FPV (first person view).
Welcome back! It’s been another week and we have several new products to talk about. So let’s jump right in and see what we’ve got.
UAV - Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
What is ArduCopter? ArduCopter is an easy to set up and easy to fly platform for multirotors and helicopters. Its features go far beyond the basic manual control RC multicopters on the market today. Unlike RC-only multicopters, ArduCopter is complete UAV solution, offering both remote control and autonomous flight, including waypoints, mission planning and telemetry displayed on a powerful ground station. ArduCopter is on the cutting edge of aerial robotics and intended for those people who want to try advanced technology, leading edge techniques and new flight styles. The Arducopter project is based on the APM 2.x autopilot created by the DIY Drones community.
