Quadcopter Test Platform

This customized quadcopter will be used as a test platform for sensors, motors and imaging tools. Using GPS, an FPV camera, the Ardupilot flight controller and the DJI Flamewheel 450 frame, this multirotor will test autonomous and controlled flight for reconnaissance, search and rescue and drone racing. A few features have been customized like 3D printed prop guards, landing legs and camera mount. One of the sensors being tested is the open source vision platform ...

Sumobot

I am coaching a school robotics team at Blue School in Manhattan. The students have some coding experience, some building (LEGO) experience. We are using the Makeblock platform to learn on. I am building a prototype with ultrasonic sensor mounted with a 3D adapter and light reflectance sensor (line follower) to show the design and coding involved. Robot-sumo, or pepe-sumo, is a sport in which two robots attempt to push each other out of a ...

Robotic Reconnaissance

Whether by fixed wing, multirotor or airship drones, amongst a professional team, we can capture the shot you're looking for. We capture visually impactful imagery for journalism, cinema, events, environmental monitoring and a much more. HD to 4K color video, 360 VR, 3D stereo - high resolution still and video imagery captured at any angle brings dramatic and unique perspective to any project. Multispectral overlays stitched from a mosaic of images reveal elevation and vegetation ...

Project: Multirotor Wings

This device is a portable, wearable, semi-autonomous and tethered multirotor (aka drone, UAV) that is carried as a compact backpack but when engaged can lift or pull a user by various amounts. For sport, safety, strategic advantage, the ability to lift, even partially or in bursts, gives a physical advantage in a multiple uses. Imagine hiking in the canyon lands of Utah, skipping across plateau to plateau. Or jumping cross a ravine with a roaring ...

Project: Ball Robot

Currently we are designing a Robot Ball that utilizes a Sphero-like drive system.  Designed to be used in Search and Rescue scenarios, the robot ball can be thrown into any environment and situation and actively navigate a dangerous or hard to reach place to search for victims and assist in rescue. A platform like this could also be used by researchers in the field who need to "look around the bend", research what's beyond your ...
