Wireless Gateway Integrates Wireless Sensors with Existing Aircraft Systems at the ‘Speed of Software’
Wireless sensor technology offers considerable advantages for aerospace vehicles. In traditional hardwired avionics systems, sensor integration requires installation of literally tons of physical cable, resulting in significant increases in weight, development and maintenance cost, and time to make required repairs and modifications.
Despite the promise of wireless avionics systems, they have yet to gain mass adoption throughout the aerospace industry. Innovators at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center realized that the core of the issue was that any avionics system would need to be physically modified to incorporate new wireless capability.
The answer: A single universal wireless access point or “gateway” that can be reprogrammed to communicate with any wireless device. With a gateway, new wireless capability can be incorporated ...
This idea is to build a flying machine which can be anybody’s personal vehicle like a bicycle, bikes...etc. These devices will be more compact and will be designed like a skateboard which can fly. The person can float over the streets with this device. This device will be lifted with a dozen high power electric ducted fans which can produce the thrust to lift a payload of 100kg. This is build with the auto stability gyro unit so that it will be stable in any condition and very safe device to fly on.
The power system for this device will be a unique one. The difficulties in the board is the power source which needs to power a dozen ...
