30 Apr Drones more and more autonomous
The application of a drone, either in the military, in filming or in agricultural production, needed to be remotely controlled by man. Nonetheless, this scenario could be altered as soon as possible using a technology that will enable drones to fly autonomously. To make this a reality, drones will be able to understand and respond to the surrounding environment, by modifying its trajectory and by deflecting from objects. The companies Intel and Ascending Technologies have presented a prototype capable of deflecting itself from people and obstacles, by having incorporated an extremely light sensor and camera.
