Last week we presented the DiDIY project, its task, and what we are currently doing, at the Paris Open Source Summit, in the fossA (Free/Open Source Software in Academia) sub-event. More in detail, we briefly introduced, through these slides:
As in so many other areas, computer-based tools combined with public web platforms for sharing designs, have opened-up the field of agent-based simulation . NetLogo is an integrated development environment for making, playing with and using these simulations in the most accessible manner upto the present time. This system is based upon the computer language Logo that was designed by an educational psychologist (Semour Papert, a student of Piaget's).
The Lab temporarily labeled "Volandia LAB" is focused on flight technologies, unmanned aerial veihcles, Drones, and all related technologies. We use as well 3D Printing technologies to integrate, produce drone parts and for research scopes. Activities also integrates research and projects in the Internet of Things and Hardware field in general.
