DroneShowSoftware (previously UgCS Drone Dance Controller (DDC)) is the first commercially available software, developed to manage a swarm of drones equipped with lights, fireworks, smoke generators or other payloads for astonishing shows. DroneShowSoftware relies on ArduCopter platform and almost all of the ArduPilot ecosystem. ArtNET integration enables drone payload management integrated into the scenario of shows, e.g. music or live performance.
“It is marvelous to see a swarm of drones dance according to a pre-planned flight formation synchronized with music, displaying brand logos or messages. The diverse payload options add “WOW effect” to any show - smoke generators for daytime shows or LED-lights and fireworks for night shows,” says Janis Kuze, SPH Engineering Sales director. See a list of videos of DroneShowSoftware in action with diverse payloads from demo-flights and integrated into shows in the USA and Poland.
For testing purposes of DroneShowSoftware SPH Engineering is operating a fleet of 25 UAV running ArduCopter and equipped with RTK GPS units, RGB LED modules, and a WiFi adapter. Instructions to replicate the drones used for DroneShowSoftware swarm testing are published on GitHub.
