First participant in the DronesBench™ contest
The Institute of Higher Education Galileo Ferraris (Settimo Torinese, TO) was the first to participate in the DronesBench ™ competition, bringing to our attention a drone with a life jacket and potentially capable of saving lives in the water: through the radio control it is in fact possible to unhook the lifebuoy, without the risk for the drone to bathe completely due to a possible immersion.
The school, led by Professor Alessandro Dionisio, has worked to create a drone that is not only useful on a practical level and easy to use, but also able to fly according to law, as shown by the certificate issued by us (within class C2 and the operational area A2).
As per regulation, a video has been created summarizing the experience gained by designing, building and testing the aforementioned machine ( https://youtu.be/3UwENidXHlA ) and its own user and technical manual.
As far as the test is concerned, we first ascertained that there were no mechanical interferences between the various parts of the drone and then tested their actual potential and limits.
At the end of it, the result was exceptional, considering the fact that it was built by boys and professors and not by technicians of the trade: the noise test led to data very close to those taken from our laboratory tests conducted on average. on our other drones, while the test on our Dronescale bench (chosen as the best solution for the “lifeguard drone”) has led to an excellent thrust / weight ratio, a symptom of the good structure of the machine, and to a very high DBIs, symptom of its excellent efficiency.
Sharing TV, one of the competition partners, also interviewed the project’s CEO, Ing. Mauro Pompetti, taking up the laboratory and the first stages of preparation for the DronesBench ™ certification test and publishing it all on their Facebook page → https://it-it.facebook.com/sharingtv272/videos/2023376061303383/

At the next news, where we will describe the experience gained with the second team that will come to visit us in the laboratory!
