Robot Reverse Engineering: Designing an Autonomous Transatlantic Boat

Posted on March 06, 2014

By Jeffrey Arcand & filled under Entertainment, Robotics Projects & Kits.

Some of you may have hear about Scout — The Autonomous Transatlantic Robot. She is a 12-foot long robotic solar-powered boat designed and built by 7 college/university students from the USA. She was launched in August 2013 from Rhode Island and programmed to autonomously cross the Atlantic Ocean to her destination in Spain. Although she [...]

Basics: How Do I Choose Appropriate Sensors?

Posted on February 06, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry, Where to Start.

For a robot to react to its environment, it must first obtain information about its surroundings. Robots are not limited to just sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Robots can not only sense but give accurate values for a variety of environmental factors that humans are otherwise unaware of or incapable of doing.  Measure Distance [...]

There are not really higher range ultrasonic sensors out there. You can get more range but will never be able to use such sensor ... have not been tested with UAVs specifically. Usually the use of a Barometer (pressure sensor) is more common in altitude measurement.
