So what have I been working on for the past year? This is my thesis. Let me introduce to you, Vectored Thrust.
I've implemented a PID controller as a flight controller. It uses an Xbox 360 controller for user input. It has 8 servos and 4 motors. It weighs 2.2kg (illegal to fly recreationally). Overall cost of about $2000-$2500 including Advanced Navigation's Spatial INS.
Hopefully I can get back into some of my hobbies including photography and cycling.
Thank you to the people who helped me the most and also to those who supported me emotionally. Thank you Dr.Jay, Steve from the labs, the "mech boys" and my partner.
5.5 years of study. Thank you UNSW for all the education and time. Despite your flaws, I have no regrets choosing the best educational institution for mechatronics.
Futuristic technology.... Advanced Navigation has released their new subsea acoustic positioning transponder called SUBSONUS.
Subsonus Tag is a acoustic positioning transponder that operates with the Subsonus USBL. It was developed to provide fully integrated positioning capability to users across a broad array of applications.
Subsonus Tag features an integrated battery and a revolutionary acoustic processing architecture that allows it to operate for up to 18 months on one charge.
Subsonus Tag’s multi-track technology also allows up to 65,000 subsea tags to be tracked by one surface Subsonus unit. A pressure tolerant e-ink display built into the unit allows for fast identification of multiple units and their status.
The design of Subsonus Tag is fully hermetically sealed with no air cavities or connectors which provides unparalleled reliability and cost savings. Communication is via bluetooth and the unit is charged wirelessly using the same high speed Qi wireless charging found in smartphones. #lltechinternationalsecuritysystemsolutions#advancednavigation#advancedtechnology#subsonus#submarinetechnology#submarinenavigation#futuristictechnologies
