____SCB eco-light - Heliports________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Smart Controlled Biofly, hence the acronym "SCB", are lights signalation devices with high efficiency LED lights controllable remotely through a wireless comunication ZigBee module and powered by photovoltaic panels.

Arise from the need to provide the pilot of a message immediately noticeable, that aids in a critical path, even in low visibility conditions and in the presence of other moving vehicles. The aircraft equipped with transponders, or other means to communicate through radio frequency, or even a simple enabled phone to send text messages, sends its data identification, position, velocity and / or direction and makes contact with the unit master on the ground, able to incorporate the information, process it and transmit it to other nodes to generate a visible light signal from the pilot.
