The king’s coronation in the U.K. came to a close on Sunday with a multi-location drone display said to be the largest of its kind in the nation.
The coronation concert featured light displays from 1,000 drones across three locations. The display was created and deployed by Skymagic, the company behind the Queen’s Jubilee drone display.
After the coronation ceremony, the festivities continued with a concert where the drones made their debut. For the occasion, the drones formed shapes including a lion for Katy Perry’s performance of her song ‘Roar’, as well as a whale, a clematis flower and a multi-colored butterfly.
The U.K. Department for Culture, Media and Sport said the display was the “largest ever multi-location U.K. drone show.”
Skymagic uses swarm drone technology, integrating its drones with geofencing and a single ground-control system to maneuver the drones and prevent them from colliding. The company also uses 3D simulation technology, an in-house autopilot system and flight simulations to improve safety and predictability.
