QUESTION
  ·  Mark as Answered

Hey Steven I am bit confused about our project!!!

You are planning to make drone which can deliver pizza anywhere in a city ( for example). Which means we need long distance control over our drone…
I think using Bluetooth module is not better idea to deal with long distance control (Bluetooth range is max upto 10 meter).

If you guys use raspberry pi instead of arduino , it will solve most of your problems, u can just plug in wifi adapters , control it through ssh remotely, etc. 😃

Maharshi Kansara right now my dream is to actually build the pizza #drone but I need to accomplish a bunch of things first before I get to this level. Right now i need to get my h bridge working so i can reel the pizza up and down with the bluethooth signal.

You are correct about the bluetooth range, so in the next task we are going to need to evaluate which signal control to use.

Reeling up down is one of the choice… but i dont think its the best one… we can simple hand it over without reeling… that will be more easier. But may be in some cases it might be beneficial…

How do you confirm its picked by the person who have orderd it.??.. best option is to calm down the drone to ground and acces the finger print security system or password lock system then we can achive best possibilities . Reel up down might not be a good solition.

Don’t go into finger print Security and all those stuff; it’s only gonna increase the complexity. Try this out. I don’t know how far it’ll work out. After an order is placed give a code to the customer. Now when the drone reaches its destination, notify the customer. Now only when the customer enters the code will the delivery reel down. This ensures the delivery has reached the right person also when the customer enters the code, make a change in your database. This way you come to know it is piced up. If the customer doesn’t respond to the notification after a certain number of times. Consider the order to be cancelled!

why not use a GPS route determining distance control. all u’ll need would be a web server and the necessary sensors. (bump and uv) probably. the programming could always be gotten online, the arduino web site should be able to hook you up.
