Zano Drone – Will it fly again?

13:15-14:00

Vernon Kerswell, Founder, Extreme Fliers

This talk will share the story of Zano – a Kickstarter project that aimed to develop an autonomous, swarming nano Drone but came crashing down to earth before the product could be completed. Since then the project has been taken on by a group of developers (with support from Extreme Fliers) who managed to obtain the original source code and hardware. They set about developing the features that the original product tried to achieve, this talk will provide an insight into the findings of Zano.

DURING THIS SESSION DELEGATES WILL LEARN:

1. An overview of the Zano Hardware
2. Analysis of the technology and associated problems (evaluating the electronics, structure and software)
3. Improvements made to overcome these issues
4. How the technology can be used in future Drones
