Remotely Piloted Systems
This is a media curation page for the PIRatE Lab's AARR Program.  We are developing practical, low cost programs to monitor resources in our coastal zone (the land near the ocean and the ocean near the land) with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs aka "drones") overhead and subtidal Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) .  Enjoy!!

Tesla and Google are both driving toward autonomous vehicles. Which company is taking the better route?

Tesla and Google are both driving toward autonomous vehicles. Which company is taking the better route? | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
Google won't release a self-driving car until it can do away with human drivers entirely. Tesla, on the other hand, has turned customers into test drivers. Which strategy is smarter -- and safer?
PIRatE Labs insight:
Different pathways to apparently different end points in autonomous navigation and the degree of algorithmic control of movement.

Could Drones Revolutionize Agriculture?

Could Drones Revolutionize Agriculture? | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
Tiny, autonomous planes call drones made of foam could be used to detect crop damage, reduce pesticide use, and track irrigation leaks.
Elliot Benders insight:
this is definitly going to take farming technology into the 21st century. No longer are logs and detailed tracks going to be hand written and stored on the dash board of an old farming pick up truck.
