I came here today to share a project I am currently working on, and also to ask for some inputs on the name of such project.
The Goal is to create a YouTube channel to make Robotics more accessible and help people who are interested in such to develop a passion. The plan I have is to start with something simple that can be very entertaining and captivating and gradually dig into more involved topics. So I would start with High-Level (companion computer) programming of flying Drones using Python and Dronekit. And from there go into other topics such as SITL, introduce Deep Learning in Python to use with Dronekit, flight board hacking with a little electronics, how to use ROS with Ardupilot, and how to start using ROS and Gazebo for other Robot types.
So here’s my dilemma, I initially wanted to name the channel Drone Brains, as to me drones are more than quadcopters. But it seems that in general the word Drone is having a bad connotation (am I wrong?), and also it might not be clear to some people that Drones in the context of My Youtube channel would be more than the flying things a lot of people might be annoyed by.
So I would like to hear from you guys, that know about this topic and might have felt the prejudice your opinions. Is Drone Brains the way to go? Should I make a more robotic-general name? Will the word drone help or hurt the cause? (ps I will be dealing with Quads too, especially in the beginning)
