Drone

University of Michigan (UM) researchers supplemented automatic drones with nail guns to repair roofs. Relying on DJI S1000 Octocopter, researchers placed several cameras and markers to facilitate this invention to do their job.
Reported by Techeblog, the virtual switch is programmed so that the drone automatically pulls the trigger of the nail gun when it is in the correct position. The video is uploaded to the video-sharing site, YouTube.

Drone’s Test Attempt

This seems to be only an attempt to test the drone when doing the task of replacing human work. Reportedly, this device is only able to operate for 10 minutes.

The software used is a modified version of Ardupilot (APM) that runs on an embedded BeagleBone Blue single-board Linux computer.

“It would be very easy to have a camera system mounted on an octocopter that understands the orientation of the shingle and its position,” said Ella Atkins, a professor of aerospace and robotics engineering.
