PCB designing, camera imaging and sun sensing

Hello World!

This very professional-looking setup was used by Emil (who later turned into a blonde popsicle out in the freezing Swedish Cold) to measure how far away it is possible to capture camera images of our LED. This will tell us a lot about the distance between the FFUs which will be optimal for good tracking. And we must say we were very impressed with the preliminary results! One single LED was visible from 1300 meters away.

This week we are working very hard with designing the PCBs that are going to manage the tracking. It’s a time-consuming process, but we’re confident that we’ll produce something cool.
