AR.Drone 2 is An HD Eye In The Sky

Author: Administrator
The impressive smartphone-controlled Parrot AR.Drone quadcopter, first shown at CES in 2010, is getting some really good up-dates that are to be announced around this year's seminar.

The greatest adjustments for the AR.Drone 2.0 are typically hardware and software upgrades to make these devices quicker to take flight. Far better location and position sensors must create the drone extra stable in the air, and also a all new demands sensor should help it hold its height better whether it is a lot more than a number of feet above the ground (when the ultrasonic ground proximity sensor is ineffective).

On the application facet, a brand new "absolute flight" mode allows you to control the drone all-around up by simply tilting your smartphone; the copter points by itself in the course of journey instantly. In order to fly it in an increasingly typical way, like a radio-controlled helicopter, there is a professional mode as well. The control application is intended for iOS and Android.

Moreover, there is "director mode" that lets you hover the copter in any sideways orientation, which is useful for documenting video.

Having the view coming from above it is exactly what this bird is about. A whole new 720p camera with the copter's nose supports the snapshot to your smartphone, and you can record that dream as well (possibly without the pilot controls that happen to be overlaid on the mobile phone).

However, the AR.Drone's non-toy software will probably be minimal by its dependence on Wi-Fi for control as well as video transmission. As well as it makes use of a direct Wi-Fi network (the drone acts as its own hub), you cannot rely upon signals from many other Wi-Fi hubs to extend the range (officially, you could, but that could be a topic for AR.Drone discussion boards). Of course, many other Wi-Fi can hinder the drone, as well as Parrot team would not fly the thing indoors with CES given that they've previously experienced what the results are in the "Wi-Fi war zone" of a large seminar. I found a drone zoom off crazily in to someone's head last year; the good news is, the Styrofoam bumpers across the drone eliminated all damage.

The AR.Drone comes with several "virtual reality" game titles where you fly the drone all around and the screen on your smartphone illustrates target information as well as game data, which might incorporate "missiles" shot at drones that friends are traveling, superimposed around the control screen. Which is unnoticed. With this revise, the AR.Drone gets over a model, as well as will probably become well-liked more for the capability to get aerial video. It is the excellent device for filmmakers.

The AR.Drone 2.0 will ship in Q2 this season and list for $299, the latest good price for the merchandise. Find more details on the official site.
