Remote Controlled Dragonfly is not just for Geeks
The DelFly II is a remote controlled Dragonfly with an onboard camera weighing only 16 grams. The camera is used to analyze different surrounding objects which are then sent to a controlling computer for analysis of depth, distance, and velocity.
The images are then compared with the actual navigating pilot’s maneuvers and resent back to the Dragonfly for optimal flying and steering.
Additional information, specification, and “about” this project details may be found at the DelFly site, and you can also watch the great demonstration video below, although the explanation and language are not in English.
The DelFly II is a wonderful electronic device that I wish would truly go into mass production.
