Pink, purple, and blue…..

Yes, you are right. These are just colors, different from each other. But are they just colors or are they representative of something else? No need to struggle so much you are on the right track. While raising my two children, a girl, and a boy, even I was also tempted to buy pink and purple stuff for my daughter and blue ones for my son. I always used to think that why this differentiation on the basis color. There was a change in me, and I started buying my daughter blue toys and clothes too. And why not, I did not want to limit my daughter to think that she can not wear clothes that were any thing other than pink and purple. For my son, I continued to buy blue and other acceptable colors for boy’s green, red, brown, black, grey, and even yellow and orange but never pink or purple.

Now, my kids are grown up, they chose things of their own. My daughter loves every color except pink and purple and my son wants to buy a pink shirt just for a change. I just keep thinking why I ever restricted the colors they can have in their life. It is their life. Why cannot they decide? If my son comes to me asking Mom, why do you not let me buy a pink shirt. I have my answers ready now. I will tell him of coz you can buy a pink shirt, and it will look good on you. But to tell you the truth, my son still does not have a pink shirt. He never bought it.

One day a boy told his Mom, “Mama, I love pink dolls, I like playing with girls, I want to paint my nails, can I buy a purple sweatshirt.” Mom was stunned. She looked at her son and told him, I love you my son and I am proud of you. You do not differentiate on the basis of colors. You are special and you have the right to choose what you want.

Food delivery drones: Problems

food delivery drone

The pandemic time has made most things virtual or online. Food chains are no exception to this. When restaurants were shut down, there was no end to the misery of people surviving on outside food. Then the online and pick up option paved the way for a new concept of dining inside the comfort of your house. Then came a rush of services like Uber Eats, Grub hub and Door dash which has been at the forefront handling food delivery. The idea of drones delivering food did not come as a surprise and why not. But thinking of that what hurdles could there be for a drone to handle and deliver food as efficiently and painstakingly as humans do. Afterall it is a matter of food and one can does not take a chance.

Before we delve into the problems with food delivery drones let us find how this all started. The very first FAA 

In the year 2015, the drone startup, Flirty was approved by the FAA. Flirty was used to deliver medical supplies to a medical clinic in Wise County, Virginia. A year later Flirtey affiliated with Domino’s Pizza to carry out pizza deliveries in New Zealand. The drone food delivery industry has grown in popularity owing to its ease of use and time and cost effectiveness. Despite that the problems hindering this growth can be listed as follows:

1. Safe Place to deliver

Delivering food through a drone is convenient but at same time a hassle because you need to look for an open space to drop the package. A building amidst dense trees or in a busy locality may not have enough option to deliver the package.

2. Weather

Extreme weather conditions like snow, fog and rain makes it difficult for drones to perform efficiently. In regions having extreme weather patterns drone delivery does not prove to be a feasible option.

3. Misuse

Drones often become targets of people who want to damage them and mess with them by sending other drones. This results in loss for the company deploying the drones.

4. Battery Range

The weight of the product being delivered directly impacts the efficacy with which the drone performs. It tends to drain more energy if loaded with heavy items. Other factors impacting the battery drainage is weather. It is important that the packaging of the products is weatherproof too.

5. Power Lines

Most of the areas have power lines on high poles and this leads to constraint in the movement of drones because of visibility. This problem could be solved by programming the drones for vertical takeoff and landing.

Using a drone as a mode of transporting goods certainly has been a help during a time when we want to avoid shopping malls and eateries. It has saved us from being physically present to buy stuff. If used in a planned manner and by keeping all the above problems in view it can prove to be the next best thing for food delivery.

Robotics

Robotics is the creation of science, engineering and technology. All these aspects combine to present the world with machines called robots. They are intended to perform like humans and are termed as artificial intelligence. They can work only when programmed to perform different actions. Broadly, it comprise of five primary areas:

  1. Mobility or Locomotion
  2. Operator Interface
  3. Manipulators and effectors
  4. Programming
  5. Sensing and Perception

The use of robots has become common sight not only in engineering but also in day to day life. In recent times robots acted like the frontline workers by taking over the repetitive tasks of doctors. The basic structure of all robots rely on its structure which has to be sturdy to perform the tasks for which it is built. Then comes the power to move it which comes from a battery or electrical connection. Despite having a strong built and structure, a robot will not budge until guided by computer programming.

Robots can be of different types based on their usage. They can look and behave differently depending on the programming. They have been categorized into five types:

  1. Pre-programmed robots: These types of robots are used on controlled environment where they are subjected to repetitious tasks.
  2. Humanoid robots: A s the name suggests, these robots copy human behavior. They are even designed to look like humans.
  3. Autonomous Robots: These robots are designed to work without human intervention. The Roomba vacuum cleaner is the most popular example.
  4. Teleoperated Robots: These robots are controlled by humans but are meant to operate in extreme conditions.
  5. Augmenting Robots: These kinds of robots are used in the medical field to improve human capabilities.

Robotics has made its presence felt even in unthinkable area and has made tremendous contribution to making tasks simpler for human. Its purely engineered and devised by the humans but has made its presence felt by working shoulder to shoulder with humans.

My Words

I started writing when I was in school. Rhyming words used to inspire me. I loved the way it helped me in weaving my words in to sentences and then turn them into poems. Later I used to write to vent out my feelings and never cared to preserve them. But it made me realize that words are powerful. It can shape your thoughts and was an effective way of expressing yourself.
It’s been long since then. I still write but want to give it a direction and purpose. You can say I want to take my words to the next level. My blogs and contents on WordPress will be about things that inspire me and everything that I learn, observe and achieve. Good luck to me in this journey.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.
