VikaCopter swarms 4 U


Fuggedaboutit it using GPS. If sonar panned out & we could get it up to 20Hz, a VikaCopter swarm would definitely happen someday. It would take precise alternating of pings from 2 separate computers. It would use 1 ground station & a lot of new software.

A swarm can do a lot of things a single vehicle can't. 3 GPS guided vehicles can surround a building & provide UWB positioning for a vehicle inside. 1 vehicle can fly a light while the other one flies a camera. They can refuel each other. They can hand off payloads to eliminate refueling. Most of the money these days goes to mapping obstacles using swarms. They can do other things which R too crazy to mention.

Sonar hell

Aligning 3 channel audio is hard. You're better off sending 3 channels + 1 empty channel & eating the clockcycles. Also not sure of exactly the best way to determine the phase of 3 audio channels.

& listening to it during 10 hours of traffic every week, U realize the purpose of universities isn't what it was 15 years ago. People R learning everything they need from the internet. They're getting brand recognition from universities.

The MIT degree means they physically sat in a room, were lectured to by the best, & waited on a lot of stupid questions. That's the kind of thing big companies value. So MIT doesn't spend money on calculus & theory. It pays to have celebrities give lectures.

At least we now know the SSME's exploded 14 times on the test stand.

It really sux when $56 can't buy walking on carpet, but we suppose this funny money is the only way to pay off your mortgages & SUV's. The problem is she sinks into the carpet & her feet can't get enough altitude to move horizontally. U can get her to stop falling over with snow shoes but the altitude is hopeless.

With direct PC control of the servos, she could probably take big enough steps to move. What a major soldering operation. The stock IR commands wouldn't do the job.
