Programming drones to fly in the face of uncertainty

Programming drones to fly in the face of uncertainty

Feb 23, 2018 United States
Companies have big ideas for drones that can deliver packages right to your door. But even putting aside the policy issues, programming drones to fly through cluttered spaces like cities is difficult. Being able to avoid obstacles while traveling at high speeds is computationally complex, especially for small drones that are limited in how much they can carry onboard for real-time processing.
