Tiny Solar-Powered Drone

For years, scientists have wanted to create flying robotic vehicles the size of insects. The tricky bit has been building something that can produce enough thrust while still being light enough to fly, without being tethered to an external power source. Now, a group of researchers have hit on a new design. At half the […]

One Competition, Three Challenges

“IT’S NOT ABOUT THE DRONES” We experience this first hand on a daily basis at WeRobotics and across the Flying Labs network. Only approximately 10% of time is actually invested in the drone itself, the other 90% is all about data and community and stakeholder engagement. So why is it that most organizations concentrate their efforts […]

Developing AI for High-Speed Drones

Lockheed Martin and the Drone Racing League have announced the nine teams that were accepted into the 2019 AlphaPilot Innovation Challenge, an open competition to develop artificial intelligence (AI) for high-speed racing drones. These teams have earned a coveted spot in DRL’s inaugural autonomous drone racing series, the Artificial Intelligence Robotic Racing (AIRR) Circuit, which kicks off later this year. The […]
Autonomous Drone Plays Dodge-Ball

Autonomous Drone Plays Dodge-Ball

In this video, you’ll see how researchers at the University of Zurich have equipped an autonomous drone with an “event camera” that allows it to avoid moving objects while in flight. Event cameras only send data when the pixels in its field of vision change in intensity, so they have super-fast response times. Of course, […]
