What is an accelerometer?

An accelerometer is an electromechanical device, a sensor, that measures acceleration both horizontally in both horizontal axis due to speed, slow down, or high G turns, and vertically due to gravity and lift up or down. For example, accelerometer and gyroscope sensors are often combined in one sensor called Inertial Measurement unit and connected to […]

Uses of Drones

Drones are used more and more all the time. It is for sure that we will see more applications in the near future, due to increasing battery power and auto piloting capabilities. Here is a summary of uses of drones at present: Military Examples: Reconnaissance or Attack drones   Visual inspection, photography or video recording […]

Types of Drones

Planes: Unmanned planes follow the same principle as manned planes, which is based on lifting the aircraft by means of pressure differential lifting force at different sides of the wings, when a propeller in the front pushes the air towards the wings. Planes fly forward faster than helicopters or multirotor drones but they cannot hover […]

What is a drone exactly?

What is a drone exactly?

So, what are drones? They can be defined as robotic devices, without a human on board, that are either remote controlled by humans or moving autonomously. Almost everyone, immediately thinks that drones represent only flying unmanned vehicles, but technically it is not true. Unmanned Ground or Sea Vehicles are also drones. However, our focus in […]
