In spite of the fact that Genesis utilized an essentially bigger number of drones for the record, it fails to measure up to the complexity and artistic merit of Damoda’s 2020 endeavor with less drones.
Beginning’s robot show takes a to a largely 2D approach by utilizing the UAV formation to render flat images. Damoda’s robot bunch, then again, created spectacular 3D renditions of the globe and satellites.
What makes drones ideal for such aerial shows?
Remarkably, instead of single-rotor R/C helicopters, drones are quad-rotor aerial vehicles that are inherently stable by design, while striking a good balance between maneuverability, speed, and stability.
This makes them ideal for such shows. Be that as it may, the true complexity in these endeavors lies in the control automation aspect, which utilizes AI sub-routines as a significant piece of accomplishing such feats.
Drone shows pay rich dividends due to near-certain press coverage
