Its glad to know the development of new technology in this information booming era. When many government and company compete each other with new development of satellite and sensor with new constellation and in big size, now we are served with the development of small vehicle research and nano technology.
In the field of remote sensing, it seem in the future the use of small vehicle equipped with nano-sensor will become new actor on earth-environmental monitoring. From this video on youtube, we can see how is the development of small -even very small if we compared with satellite- vehicle is incredible! According to the explanation of the up-loader the “experiments performed with a team of nano quadrotors at the GRASP Lab, University of Pennsylvania. Vehicles developed by KMel Robotics.”
I am wondering how if this technology used in the monitoring inside the mining hole, to understanding the geological structure more details. Or how if we used this kind of small vehicle in remote wetland area to explore more details about the vulnerable environment. Or to monitor the flower agriculture in large area, to know it’s healthy or not
Next stage I think is the development of nano-sensor to be added on the small-vehicle. With the availability of nano technology it seem not to difficult to build new nano-sensor that can attached on.
