The Fourth of July might be somewhat totally different tomorrow at Travis Air Drive Base in Fairfield, Calif. As an alternative of fireworks, 500 Intel Capturing 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 individual controls the fleet of drones due to a classy management platform that pre-plans the route of every drone. Intel engineers advised me that the system can management an infinite 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 formidable present of know-how. I used to be in attendance for the primary present at Disney World and the drones are an exquisite different to fireworks. Certain, fireworks are a Fourth of July custom, however they will’t do the issues these drones can do, plus, as a result of they’re rather more quiet, extra individuals can benefit from the present.
