Winners Announced…Intel® Aero Compute Board Giveaway

In partnership with Mouser Electronics

Congratulations to our winners!

Congratulations to our winners!
Henry B. & Francis G..


Mouser is giving away 2 Intel® Aero Compute Boards! The Intel® Aero Compute Board is a purpose-built, UAV developer kit powered by a quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor. The board combines compute, storage, communications, and flexible I/O in a form-factor the size of a standard playing card. Match the board with the optional Vision Accessory Kit and have endless opportunities to launch sophisticated drone applications into the sky. For more information about the board, view the datasheet

    I’m working on a project to help visually impaired people walking in the street. Even with many facilities and tools applied, it is still dangerous for visually impaired people to walk on the street because of so many obstacles like light poles or scaffolding pipes, and moving objects like cars and bicycles. Using Intel® Aero Compute Boards allow me to quickly implement the system by using Intel RealSense computer vision tool to identify obstacles and send out alerts when they are dangerously close.

    I have another existing project that will benefit from this powerful board.  I had a drone project which was using voice to control the drone. You can use commands like “up 10 inches”, “forward 10 inches” etc. But given the drone only use a nRF52 chip as both flight control and bluetooth communication, there’s not enough computing power to do more than hard coded flight path. It will be a huge upgrade to this project to use this board as UAV controller to take more complex and flexible tasks like “fly to the north until reach the wall”, or “follow the road for 10 feet”, and the drone should be able to do real time vision analyzing and figure out how to apply the commands.

    Last year I was involved in a team researching constructivism and machine reasoning. We had a land-robot with a webcam attached to the top scouting an environment we had made for it. We were trying to use machine learning to pick up on patterns and identify objects. In the end we all just got busy with other things and lost interest in our club. With this board, we could build a drone to similarly identify objects on the ground by surveying with a webcam. This would be helpful in numerous scenarios including search-and-rescue, military, and land surveying. The Intel Aero certainly has these high-performance capabilities.
