DJI proposes electronic accountability for drones

Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: There may indeed be laws limiting the places in which aerial drones can be flown, but if someone sees a drone breaking one of those laws - particularly if it's from a distance - how do they know who's responsible? Drone manufacturer DJI has suggested a solution, in the form of what amounts to an "electronic license plate." The idea is that all drones would come equipped with inexpensive radio equipment that transmits both their location and a user-specific identification code.

Reuters: Airspace is among some 70 companies working on counter-drone systems as small consumer and commercial drones proliferate. But unlike others, it aims to catch drones instead of disabling them or shooting them down.

Accurate Motion in Inaccurate Situations

It can be difficult to install and adjust two parallel linear guides for smooth and precise motion. The most common obstacle is binding which can result when mounting surfaces aren't exactly parallel. UtiliTrak® linear guides are designed with some unique features to compensate for mounting surface errors so that absolute parallelism is not required. This can save time and frustration.
