Drones will become more reliable with a development platform for image processing components

Whether for the car or the drone: Developing image processing software for embedded systems takes a lot of time and is therefore very expensive. Now the Tulipp platform makes it possible to develop energy-efficient embedded image processing systems more quickly and less expensively, with a drastic reduction in time-to-market. The Fraunhofer Institute for Optronics, System Technologies and Read more about Drones will become more reliable with a development platform for image processing components[…]

Drone swarm capable synchronize and reconfigure its flightpath

Specialists from the Academic Laboratory of Industrial Robotics of Tomsk Polytechnic University are developing a multi-agent robotic system for flying a swarm of intelligent drones. Now they are tasked to ‘teach’ a swarm of 10 drones to fly without crashing into each other, avoid stationary or mobile obstacles and safely land on the point specified Read more about Drone swarm capable synchronize and reconfigure its flightpath[…]

Using VR students can learn better from a drone

he teacher is just as important in a virtual learning environment as in a normal classroom, but a new study shows that boys and girls differ greatly in terms of how they learn best: Boys learn best when their virtual teacher comes in the form of a drone, while girls get more knowledge from VR-teaching Read more about Using VR students can learn better from a drone[…]

A New Rescue Missions Drone

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters. Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is Read more about A New Rescue Missions Drone[…]

Future wireless networks can be designed by drones

New technique provides an accurate 3D model, which improves the prediction of the propagation of radio waves at millimetre-wave frequencies. The development of mobile devices has set increasingly high requirements for wireless networks and the emission of radio frequencies. Researcher Vasilii Semkin together with a research group at Aalto University and Tampere University of Technology Read more about Future wireless networks can be designed by drones[…]

UAVs and insect cyborgs or biobots to map large unfamiliar areas

Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a combination of software and hardware that will allow them to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and insect cyborgs, or biobots, to map large, unfamiliar areas – such as collapsed buildings after a disaster. “The idea would be to release a swarm of sensor-equipped biobots – such Read more about UAVs and insect cyborgs or biobots to map large unfamiliar areas[…]
