Jamming devices to combat new forms of cheating

Civilian drone activity has increased exponentially as drones become more easily accessible and affordable. With more drones in the sky every day, there have been some creative and sometimes dangerous attempts to disable drones. The reasons for disabling a drone can vary from boredom and curiosity to privacy and safety concerns. To be clear, the Center for Technology Innovation does not condone or promote the act of harming drones.

Own a drone and want to have some fun with it? Then check out this tutorial from Make magazine that shows you how to build a device that’ll disable a drone in an instant. The technology uses a Wi-Fi cell phone jammer that will interrupt the connection between the drone and the controller. It can be quite effective at bringing down drones that use Wi-Fi as their method of communication.

Schools became the main users of the equipment

In addition to the school order framework, Mr. Brown stressed that the phone ban is also a “public health message that is good for the family” and is good for children. He warned parents not to let their children touch screens for long periods of time, especially before the age of seven. That was the promise of Mr Macron’s presidential campaign.

But the implementation of the measure is expected to be complex. The education law has stipulated that mobile phones should not be used in primary and middle school classes. The teachers’ unions are particularly sceptical. On the one hand, many parents believe that children are not connected with their mobile phones. On the other hand, students’ schoolbags are likely to become new jobs for school employees, which can easily lead to conflict.

The device will eventually be installed by Italian authorities throughout Italian schools in an effort to prevent students from using their phones to cheat during exams. Ryan left says the device has been very successful in the testing process. Some schools in Italy now plans to also open this kind of equipment in un-con time, because all day to start the this signal jammer can make the teachers’ normal communication also is interrupted, it will make the teachers are unhappy. ‘we’ll minimize the impact,’ says Mr. Raine. ‘schools, for example, should shut down the device at noon.
