At 8:31 in the evening, nearly 1000 UAVs were shining like stars in the night sky.
Over the past year and a half, the Intel Shooting Star UAV has been flying successfully in 14 countries and has performed more than 200 performances, including the 1218 UAVs lighting show in the Pingchang Winter Olympics, South Korea, which broke the Guinness world record.
Intel Shooting Star UAVs are manufactured and assembled in Germany and Finland, weighing only 330 grams, built-in GPS receivers, barometer and inertial measurement devices (IMU), compass, and software control systems that can carry Intel for precise management of large unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), and can also present 4 billion combinations of colors.
The control software is also IntelDevelopmentAnd it runs on a HP machine.

The Yun Wei of the Intel UAV team is observing 100 UAVs flying on test flights to screen any unplanned UAVs.
The Clay Coleman, which carries the walkie talkie, is also licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration for commercial UAVs. Clay is talking to a number of teams, including a crew of the UAVs from Losangeles, who is holding a large UAV with a Hollywood camera camera behind the scenes.video.
Madeleine Ong is checking the formation of UAVs to be released. Each of the 958 UAVs can be controlled by one person on one machine, and any unmanned drone with abnormal performance can be ordered to return.
Ready to take off!The specific plans of Intel UAV formation are all Intel secrets, including the placement of UAVs on the ground, how to charge and so on.
Take off!The 958 UAV propeller rotates at the same time, flying to the sky at a speed of 10 feet (3 meters) per second and not less than 3 feet (less than 1 meters). It takes only 2 minutes to form the "time" cover word that hangs in the air.
In formation! In order to control the top of the UAV formation in the Federal Aviation Administration's legal limit, the cover pattern is a few degrees forward, so that a few miles can see the cover of time magazine, a Intel UAV suspended at a height of 300 feet (90 meters).
