G-Bot autonomous golf ball collecting robot

The G-Bot is an autonomous golf-ball collecting robot looking for backers on Indiegogo. A nice looking robot with a real world use case.

Hope they get the funding they’re looking for!

UAV Electric Propulsion System Survey

Greetings everyone,

We at Zubax Robotics research, design, and manufacture highly energy-efficient motor controllers and integrated drives for aerospace applications. One of our primary goals is to deliver better motor controllers for the UAV industry. To advance our research, we created a survey that will help us capture some of the needs of the industry.

The obtained data will be used to optimize our solutions for the current and future needs of the industry and help us alleviate one of the most significant issues of battery-powered UAV, limited endurance. Results of the survey will be shared via email with everyone interested.
