Use the Nano 33 BLE Sense’s IMU and gesture sensor to control a DJI Tello drone

Reading Time: 2 minutes Use the Nano 33 BLE Sense’s IMU and gesture sensor to control a DJI Tello drone Arduino Team — September 8th, 2021 Piloting a drone with something other than a set of virtual joysticks on a phone screen is exciting due to the endless possibilities. DJI’s Tello can do just this, as it has a…… Continue reading Use the Nano 33 BLE Sense’s IMU and gesture sensor to control a DJI Tello drone

This aerial system launches Nano 33 BLE Sense darts for data collection

Reading Time: < 1 minutes This aerial system launches Nano 33 BLE Sense darts for data collection Arduino Team — October 29th, 2020 Sensor deployment via unmanned aerial vehicles is an interesting concept. Up until now, you’ve had two options: use a drone that drops sensors onto the ground, or one with some kind of manipulator to stick them in…… Continue reading This aerial system launches Nano 33 BLE Sense darts for data collection

Light painting with a gesture-controlled drone

Reading Time: < 1 minutes Light painting with a gesture-controlled drone Arduino Team — October 9th, 2020 Researchers at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) in Moscow, Russia have come up with a novel way to interface with a drone via hand movements. As shown in the video below, the device can be used to create long-exposure light art, though…… Continue reading Light painting with a gesture-controlled drone

Control a swarm of drones with this wearable tactile device

Reading Time: 2 minutes Control a swarm of drones with this wearable tactile device Arduino Team — October 1st, 2019 If you fly drones for fun—or perhaps even for work—you know that piloting them can sometimes be a difficult tasks. Imagine, however, trying to control four drones simultaneously. While also “challenging,” researchers at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and…… Continue reading Control a swarm of drones with this wearable tactile device

Building gas thruster-controlled drone

Reading Time: 2 minutes Building gas thruster-controlled drone Arduino Team — June 13th, 2019 In the Earth’s atmosphere, a drone can adjust its heading by varying the speed of the propellers, and thus the thrust output of each. If you wanted to land something on a lunar surface, or maneuver a spaceship, the lack of atmosphere means a different…… Continue reading Building gas thruster-controlled drone

Augmented office chair provides hands-free drone control

Reading Time: 2 minutes Augmented office chair provides hands-free drone control Arduino Team — May 29th, 2019 Multi-rotor drones are normally controlled using handheld devices, but what if you wanted to instead operate them with your whole body? Flight Chair, developed by researchers at Simon Fraser University in Canada, allows you to do just that, and is envisioned for…… Continue reading Augmented office chair provides hands-free drone control

Arduino-powered ornithopter takes to the skies!

Reading Time: < 1 minutes Arduino-powered ornithopter takes to the skies! Arduino Team — April 16th, 2019 While much less common than quadcopters or airplanes, if you want a device that truly soars like a bird, you need an ornithopter. To help others make their own flying contraption, YouTuber Amperka Cyber Couch is outlining the build process in a video…… Continue reading Arduino-powered ornithopter takes to the skies!

Autonomous drones (only slightly flammable)

Reading Time: 3 minutes I had an email a little while ago, which opened: “I don’t know if you remember me, but…” As it happens, I remembered Andy Baker very well, in large part because an indoor autonomous drone demo he ran at a Raspberry Pi birthday party a couple of years ago ACTUALLY CAUGHT FIRE. Here’s a refresher.…… Continue reading Autonomous drones (only slightly flammable)
