What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

   The idea of the paramotor drone AUBE was born in front of Marseille's calanques. The wish of flying and staring at this nature wonder, became stronger than a dream.

   L'idée du drone paramoteur Aube est née au pied des calanques de Marseille où le souhait de planer et d'admirer cette merveille de la nature est devenu plus fort qu'un rêve !

   After 5 years of research and development, hundreds of crash tests and lots of technological evolutions...Here arrives our paramotor drone Aube ! Caracteristics :

   5 ans de recherche & développement plus tard, des centaines de crash tests et de nombreuses évolutions technologiques adoptées...Voici notre drone paramoteur Aube et ses caractéristiques :

Details :

  • Le paramotor wing allow Aube to fly for a minimum of one hour, more if you are able to catch some updraft.
  • Thank's to his small size (Lenght = 11.8 inches, wide = 11.8 inches and high = 7.1 inches ) you can transport it easily, even in a backpack.
  • It's playload of 2,4kg, plus his long range, give him the possibility of holding lots of sensor cells, and transmit data straight to the screen on earth.
  • La voile de parapente permet au drone Aube de voler au minimum 1 heure, voire plus en utilisant les courants d'air ascendants.
  • Avec sa petite taille (L = 300 mm, l = 300 mm, H = 180 mm), il se transporte facilement et se loge dans un sac à dos
  • Enfin sa charge utile de 2,4 kg, couplée à une transmission longue portée ; lui permettent d'embarquer un grand panel de capteurs et de transmettre leurs données directement au sol.
  • Well-proven, fully autonomous autopilot with GPS and inflight telemetry
  • Wide range of sophisticated autonomous flight modes including waypoint navigation
  • Pilotage automatique éprouvé grâce au GPS et à la télémétrie.
  • Large gamme de mode de vol automatique, y compris les points de cheminement.
 

   The best of technology, condensed to reproduce the sensation of a slow dance flight, free and quiet. The entire body is made of 3D printed parts, which allows us to create and readjust the production according to the needs of all users.

   Un condensé des meilleures technologies au service de la sensation d'un "slow" vol, libre et silencieux. L'ensemble du châssis est conçu en impression 3D, ce qui permet d'être réactif et adaptable en fonction des besoins de chaque utilisateurs. 

Electronic devise (Electronique embarqué) :

  • Microcontroller Arduino NANO
  • GPS
  • Gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer and barometer
  • Laser Rangefinder
  • Wireless module XBee Pro
  • GPRS Module
  • Microcontrôleur Arduino NANO
  • GPS
  • Gyroscope, accéléromètre, magnétomètre et baromètre
  • Télémètre laser
  • Transmission XBee Pro industrielle et crypté
  • Module GSM
 

  Compétences du drone paramoteur Aube pour la gestion et la surveillance d'espace naturel :

   Julien Lerch, an industrial robotic engineer, founder of the company Ihmati finance the development of this project by himself, until here. Thanks to his it's flexible design based on open source technologies, this drone is made in sustainable way.

   Julien Lerch, ingénieur en robotique industrielle de métier, a fondé Ihmati et auto-financé, jusque ici, le développement de ce projet. Ce dernier s'inscrit dans une démarche durable, car évolutif et s'appuyant sur des technologies open source.

   Now it's time to open Aube for everyone ! Because we would like to keep financial indepedance, we choose the crowdfunding solution, and ask you to help us.

   Le moment de rendre disponible Aube au grand public est venu ! Souhaitant préserver cette indépendance financière, le choix d'opter pour la mise en place d'une campagne de crowdfunding et de solliciter l'aimable contribution de tous s'est imposée !  

Presse et partenaires

After being part of the Icare Cup in septembre 2016, and being the winner of the Jea-Marc Mouliné prize, we are pleased to be followed on our journey ! Also by some magazine : Cross Country and Parapente +.

Suite à notre participation à la Coupe Icare 2016 et à l'obtention du prix Jean-Marc Mouligné de la meilleur invention volante, nous avons le plaisir d'être suivis dans notre aventure, notamment par les magazines Cross Country et Parapente +.

Risks and challenges

The idea of the paramotor drone AUBE was born in front of Marseille's calanques. The wish of flying and staring at this nature wonder, became stronger than a dream.
Risks and challenges
After numerous iterations of test and improvements, the Aube paramotor drone is now ready for commercial exchange. Only the ergonomy of radio-controller still need some finishing work.
Thank's to our 3D printing tools, and numerical control carving, we are already able to produce one entire drone per week. We are also able to create and build all the gifts, for you, our partners.
To improve our production, we need to buy some machines that are faster and more performant. 
Please share your ideas with us, your questions, reactions... About our product. 
Your comments will help us understand the wish and expectation of our


Après de nombreux tests et améliorations, le drone paramoteur Aube est maintenant abouti pour la commercialisation. Seul l'ergonomie de la radio-commande reste à finaliser.

Grâce à nos outils d'impression 3D et de gravure à commande numérique, nous avons déjà les capacités de fabriquer entièrement notre drone à la cadence d' un par semaine.
Nous sommes ainsi en mesure de réaliser l'ensemble des contreparties proposées.

Pour optimiser la production, l'achat de machines plus performantes et plus rapides nous est nécessaire.
Nous aimerions aussi que vous nous fassiez part de vos idées, questions et réactions sur notre produit afin de pouvoir comprendre les attentes des futurs utilisateurs de notre drone paramoteur Aube.
