Flying Aircraft over Internet

RicouFrom the 24C3 conference, Paparazzi aircraft operated in Hildesheim, Germany and in Castagnac, France were remote controlled in real time by Martin and Antoine (the station in Istanbul, Turkey was lacking a security pilot). The three local ground control stations and the remote one in Berlin were connected to a central server (located in Germany). Video from the 2 aircraft was also visible from the conference room in real-time. It was the result of great team work and … a lot of fun. See media section for some press coverage. The session video is available as a torrent here in Matroska or MPEG-4 format and these are the presentation slides.
