Robots from Scrap Metal Parts

Robots from Scrap Metal Parts

Gille Monte Ruici is a French artist, based in Paris, He builds sculptures, essentially robots, exclusively using recycled scrap metal parts. He finds his materials in trash cans, in the street, or in second hand trades. His approach gives these scraps a second life and repurposes them. He invents and makes unusual constructions. All the assemblies […]

3 Crucial Characteristics of an Autonomous Robot

For a robot to truly be considered autonomous, it must possess three very important characteristics: Perception, Decision and Actuation.   Perception: For an autonomous robot, perception means sensors. Laser scanners, stereo vision cameras (eyes), bump sensors (skin and hair), force-torque sensors (muscle strain), and even spectrometers (smell) are used as input devices for a robot. […]

What is Catapult Launching of Drones

What is Catapult Launching of Drones

This is one of the methods to launch airplane drones, because airplanes need initial speed in order to fly. Catapults are used in order to throw airplanes into the air easily and quickly, where there might not be enough distance to speed up, or the drone might not have the gear to speed up (which […]

Batteries for Drones

Batteries for Drones

Batteries provide essential power to the motors, receivers and controllers. For multirotors, the most commonly used batteries are Lithium Polymer (LiPo) types, as their energy efficiency is high. Usually 3-4 cell batteries are used, which provide currents of up to around 5000 mah (miliamperes – hour) capacity. To understand what mah means, consider this example: […]

What is “bank angle” of a drone?

What is “bank angle” of a drone?

This is the angle between the longitudinal axis of the aircraft and the horizontal axis, when the drone flies inclined. For example, when the drone flies in perfectly horizontal position, the bank angle is zero. When it starts to turn its axis the bank angle starts to increase. When flying straight, planes bank angle is […]
