Concept archetypes — update

No Comments, Gramada, by admin.

An observant reader indicated that in the previous post where I was trying to implement a concept archetype — a type with minimal interface that models a given concept — I actually failed. This deserves a closer examination. Let’s recall. … Continue reading Read the rest

Concept archetypes

No Comments, Gramada, by admin.

Concepts in the form added in C++20 used to be called lite. This is because they do not provide one quite important functionality: having the compiler check if the author of a constrained template is only using operations and types … Continue reading Read the rest


We’ve given this professional training to dozens of international and national disaster management organizations during the past half-decade. We’ve also run this training for both new and highly experienced drone pilots in dozens of countries around the world. The purpose of this training is to make you an effective and responsible team leader when deploying drones in disaster response. This training is also a great fit if you’re simply curious to learn more about the latest on the use of

Commercial drones are now becoming a mainstream technology, with the 2020 pandemic serving as a showcase for how drones can save human lives.

Drones have been used for delivery long before Amazon announced its Prime Air service. Founded in 2011, Zipline, a US-based company focused on medical drone deliveries became the pioneer in long-distance drone delivery, with distribution centers in Rwanda and Ghana. With an exponential growth since then, Zipline now delivers 65% of blood samples in Rwanda, particularly … Read the rest

Ordering by constraints

No Comments, Gramada, by admin.

In the previous post we have seen how constraint conjunction and disjunction works, and how a function template with constraints is a better match than a function template without constraints (provided that the constraints are satisfied) when determining the best … Continue reading Read the rest

Within the bustling world of drones there are always open opportunities to be followed and a drone show service is certainly one of them. Even if you don’t have the funding or the technical knowledge of setting up your own fleet of drones, there are other convenient ways to score that investment pitch without even having touched a drone. 

Let’s start with the basics of your show – it’s the vision of what you want to present your audience. Get Read the rest

Drone technology has witnessed a rapid maturity curve – with regards to not only hardware and software technology but also the use cases across industries and sectors. Consumer drones have gone past the typical use in film production and recreational uses. These prosumer off-the-shelf drones are now solving complex business problems – for example, in logistics, drones are being deployed to do last-mile delivery, managing inventory, and conducting security patrols.

In this blog, we will specifically focus on … Read the rest

Drones with cameras have both commercial and recreational applications. For commercial use-cases, the ability to live stream videos, with low latency, is crucial for the effective use of drones. This enables enterprise stakeholders to see things happening far away, in near-real-time, from a bird’s eye view. Many industries, sectors, and use-cases can leverage such remote drone operations, for example:

  • Search & rescue
  • Surveillance and security
  • Monitoring and inspection
  • Public safety

A cloud-connected, user-friendly solution can thus be leveraged by drone … Read the rest
