Commonly referred as an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), drones are becoming construction techniques, photogrammetry, transportation, agriculture, security, rescue, environmental research and many different applications. As Peter Drucker said “What gets measured gets managed“. Data interpretation is, indeed, part of every daily life in our networked society. The ability of drones to extract data and translate surrounding conditions into numeric information, turns UAV into a highly valuable technology.
 
Exploiting nowadays Fab Lab capabilities we are now able to digitally produce drones by ourselves, and to deeply understand all the techniques and technologies involved. This knowledge is now allowing us to quickly customize ad-hoc drone solutions, but also to digitally distribute, repair and replicate it where needed. From cheap solutions used as learn platforms to fully featured drones having different kind of equipment onboard, we will present and discuss the current state of the art of Fab Lab drones and their applications, in order to let anybody from the community able to access, adapt and use it, but also to provide us feedback about developments and potential applications.
What has been done in the past 2 years?
At the beginning developed as Fab Academy projects, different drone solutions have been released as open source projects. This is the case of standard drones components like the satshakit based flight controller boards, wood and 3D printed frames, protective cages. Furthermore, fully documented complete drones designs have been published, like satshacopter or nero. As main applications, we have been using them as learning platform for teaching digital fabrication, and for data collection and analysis scenarios.
FAB 13 Activities
NERO Drones, in which we will present our drone developments. Setup an hackathon-style workshop in which we help the participants in develop a new drone prototype, then released as open source in the community
Which are de spected FAB 13 Outcomes from the activities
Let the Fab Lab community be able to easily use, adapt and replicate our drones. Understand and identify the most important applications and potential applications of drones in Fab Labs and their context.
Developed outcome*
A research about the possible future of Fab Drones. A new drone prototype built during the conference in a (hackathon-style), that will try to address one of the identified potential ideas.
