Barely Droning

Barely Droning

Summary

Barely Droning is coming to Urban Burn!

We are a group of engineers who build low-budget drones from scratch. Come co-create drones with us! The sky is the limit (literally..)!

Full description of the concept

A robot lab for everyone!

Everything we create is fully open source and can be found here: https://github.com/barelydroning

We have two (barely) functioning prototypes at this moment, one with a cardboard body and one with a Lego body.

We use Android phones for sensory data, Arduinos for motor control and JavaScript for frontend and backend to communicate with our drones.

We will supply some hardware, tools and other stuff:

ESCs
Brushless motors
Propellers
LiPo batteries
Arduinos
Ultrasound sensors
Accelerometer boards
PSU for dev power
Cables and connectors
Soldering iron
Lego
Cardboard
Tape
Glue
Other (cheap) building materials

About the group/Artist

We are a group of engineers that like to create stuff. Most of our sessions include beer and some (barely) droning.

How can other burners co-create with you?

Do you want to help us in our quest of a functioning (autonomous?!) drone? Come as you are and help in any way you can!
Do you want to create your own drone? Bring any materials you want and a laptop and get creative!
Do you have other robot ideas? Grab an arduino and make something cool!

What is this?

Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Urban Burn Stockholm is a platform that allows you to share your dreams.

    Details

  • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? We need some power for a PSU, laptop power and maybe an external screen for our command center. ~1500w maybe?

  • Will there be light? Bring some LEDs and our drones will light up the sky!

  • Will anything burn? Probably an ESC or two, nothing major

  • What is your audio footprint? The propellers make some noise.. We might play some ambient music for feels

  • Next random dream
