Students designing winged drones for long-range flights

eLearningworld News Stanford is offering undergraduate the engineering course Aerial Robot Design, a class, led by David Lentink, assistant professor of mechanical engineering. At the course, the students learn to build delivery drones both quadcopter and winged drones. Besides the learning from hands-on collaborative teamwork of making a drone and fly the prototype, the ambition is also that the course fosters skills in robotics, aerodynamics, user-centered design, and systems engineering, which is of great benefit… Continue reading

The design thinking process of building a drone for disaster-zones, MIT research

eLearningworld News Engineers at MIT have designed a drone that can work without interruption for more than five days. At the same time as it stays connected, and can continue gathering data as well as provide temporary telecommunication, even if it is in a disaster zone where communication-problems goes with the territory. However, these vehicles do already exist, but the engineers at MIT have with new design managed to lower the cost dramatically, while the… Continue reading

Latest News: Build your own custom drone with MIT

eLearningworld News from US Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT launching the first system to allow users to design, simulate and build their own custom drone. This should be seen in the light of that US government has made much easier for companies and consumers to use drones.  Users can customize the size, shape and structure of their drone based on their requirements of payload, cost, flight time, battery usage etc. MIT… Continue reading
