Reactions, In 5years we will all have a small Drone next to our phone! Bart Remes @TUdelft #TedxAms #cool #drones #open!okWxdab, Very neat demonstration of two personal sizes drones by Bart Remes @TEDxAms #TEDxAMS, - Be careful what you wish for - BartRemes: 'i hope to see more drones in the future' #privacy #TEDxAms #creepyfuture

your smartphone and this small drone are pretty similar

senors used in your phone:



accelerometer, to tilt your map upside down

the same sensors in these small drones

we were able to make small autopilots due to smartphone revolution

parts get smarter and smarter

in 5 years: everybody will also have a small drone is his/her pocket

The Delfly drone


flapping wing UV

mostly created from foam

weighs only 17 grams, important because of safety

equipped with a camera

Small autopilot from TU delft

controls, either

manually, using remote, using your iPhone, in follow-me mode

autonomous, using Google earth, combining, smart software, small sensors, Tiny GPS

open source

all software

all hardware

so eveybody in the world, can contribute, can create their own small drone

why, if all people have access to these drones, some great things will be popping out

remember, your smartphone, first as a gadget, you didn't really need your smartphone, then Facebook apps appered, now you can't live without it, we hope to have the same development for these drones


small drones filming, instead of big camera crane

making it small

why make it so small, to create smaller drones, we're engineers:, we want to do research, we want to do hard things

smaller = making it harder, limited power, limited processing power, need to make, smart hardware, smart software
