Over time I have worked with dozens if not hundreds of different electronic sensors for many different environmental factors. Of all the different types of sensors I have used, those that sense distance have always been my favorite. However, in the past I have been limited to store-bought sensors such as the generic HC-SR04 ultrasonic ranging sensor if I needed something cheap and easy and the SHARP GP2Y0A21YK infrared ranging sensor if I had some extra money to spend and needed a more accurate measurement. I wanted to play with the holy grail of distance sensors, a radio detection and ranging (radar) sensor.
Note: I was paid for my endorsement of this website.
I have three major systems that I interact with on a daily basis, my laptop, my desktop tower and my server.
This website works in what I like to think is a rather unique way in the world of modern web-apps, so I thought that it might be interesting to describe it and the rational behind creating it.
I had an old bootleg DJI 450 air frame lying around my basement from a past project. It had some low cost clone brush less motors and speed controllers installed on it from the days of yesteryear when I was testing different flight controllers on it. I wanted to create a basic, docile multi-rotor to have some fun with, but not just any multi-rotor, one that runs on Linux. I got the project to a point where, technically speaking it can fly by itself, not that I would ever want it to. It will require more work to make it better.
Below is an essay that I wrote my English class at school about free software and the Free Software Foundation. I thought it may be interesting to include here.
