The Fourth of July shall be a bit of completely different tomorrow at Travis Air Pressure Base in Fairfield, Calif. As a substitute of fireworks, 500 Intel Taking pictures Star drones will take to the sky to carry out an aerial routine in honor of the vacation and the bottom’s 75th anniversary.
One particular person controls the fleet of drones because of a classy management platform that pre-plans the route of every drone. Intel engineers instructed me that the system can management a limiteless quantity of drones. Within the model I noticed, the drones used GPS to remain in place and the drones lacked any collision detection sensors.
It’s a powerful present of expertise. I used to be in attendance for the primary present at Disney World and the drones are an exquisite different to fireworks. Positive, fireworks are a Fourth of July custom, however they’ll’t do the issues these drones can do, plus, as a result of they’re rather more quiet, extra folks can benefit from the present.
