How do they do that.

Intel a fait voler 1500 drones pour ce ballet.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KhDEEN4gcpI

Comment font t'ils ?

Je ne m'y connait pas trop, mais j'ai imaginé que le vol de chaque drone est programmé et téléchargé avant le vol. Et ayant une horloge commune, chaque drone sait exactement ou il doit être à chaque instant. On imagine aussi que les drones ont des capteurs pour éviter les collisions. Essentiellement le gros du travail est de calculer le vol de chaque drone et durant le ballet ça vole tout seul sans signal des "pilotes".

Mais ce n'est que mon imagination. Je trouve ces ballets aériens fabuleux.

I found it - fabulous too ????
Definitely pre-programmed.
What I find amazing about these shows is that there rarely seems to be a “programming error” where drones move out of pattern, collide or simply fly away or crash because of battery failure.

Wow! I don’t know how it’s done, either, but it sure is impressive.

I wonder how the cost compares to a pyrotechnic fireworks display ...

Seems that they are called "shooting star" drones.

Here is an interesting article:
https://www.recode.net/2016/11/4/135...-shooting-star

"Instead, the drones are completely controlled by the master computer and operator on the ground. The drones don’t communicate with each other either, so they’re not a swarm, but are rather radio controlled."

Quite a feat flying 1500 at one time with no hardware failures.

How many times did they try it before having one perfect shot? I am sure this was not done on the first try.
