Drone Mirone

A 3D printed vampire quadcopter

José Carlos Pescada brings us the Drone Mirone, a drone aimed at counting people in beaches and find their maximum capacity. It’s made in collaboration with the research work of a team from the e-GEO da FCSH-UNL.

This drone was made out of printed parts from the Centro Ciência Viva de Tavira 3D printer, uses an Arduino based controller and a creative commons design, adapted to the specific needs of the project.

Also, it carries the vertical GoPro camera which counts people in spaces but avoid facial recognition.
