A Drone Shows You Fireworks Like You've Never Seen Them

From tactical to practical, unmanned aircraft systems are becoming a more constant presence in our everyday lives, and one of the reasons for this is that they are expendable to varying degrees. Flying a camera equipped drone through a barrage of fireworks is just another indication of this, albeit a spectacular one.

The holy grail -‘Sense-and-Avoid’ could it be within reach

The holy grail -‘Sense-and-Avoid’ could it be within reach | All about civilian drones & UAV's (and more) | Scoop.it

Panoptes UAV, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based start-up, has created a system that uses echolocation to help small quadcopters avoid collisions. The product, the eBumper, contains acoustic sensors that work outdoors, indoors and in all weather conditions, said Terrence McKenna, chief executive officer.

Currently, the system is only available for the DJI Phantom, he said. The eBumper is sold as a hard shell with integrated sensors that replaces the top half of the Phantom’s airframe and can easily be plugged into its electronics.

The company plans to manufacture shells for other UAS, McKenna said. The avionics systems are vehicle-agnostic.

“Any kind of quadrotor that’s out there, you can just plug it into the autopilot, and it will work out of the box,” he said.
