Autonomous flying vehicles

I am watching you: drones for private use are getting real. A live presentation of actual devices in real action.

The main aspect of this talk is the demonstration of an autonomous flying Quadrocopter microdrones md4-200 with 200g payload, which is a small 4-rotors-helicopter with a radio transmitting color-videocamera and a bunch of sensors on board. I will show the very first prototype of the md4-1000 with 1000g payload. We will discuss the technology, the usage scenarios and the social aspects of such devices. Part of the talk will be an introduction to an homebrew approach to drones technology. Last but not least I will show which drones are existing right now, what is planned to do and who is using such devices.
