We running a Proof of Concept  (PoC) using our 360 sensor together with quadcopters open source flight controllers such as the Naze32, CC3D or other flight controller with a standard serial port interface.

As the 360 degree sensor gives proximity feedback in a semi-sphere, by adding two sensors together we form a proximity "bubble" where the quadcopter can fly in. PoC is to get more autopilot support when flying in constrained environments.The initial tests are inside our lab where we have more control of the environment.  A special micro quadcopter / drone chassis is being designed and 3D printed  to accommodate the 360 degree sensor We'll be posting the  initial results as soon as we get some exciting stuff to report.
