algorithm to help drones monitor their own health in real time and alternative path find while on mission

Boeing sponsored research at  MIT where Agha-mohammadi and pals have developed a new algorithm based on Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDP) that allows self monitoring of the vehicles health status in real time and alternative pathfinding, accessing recharging stations and landing zones if needed during mission execution.  The paper will be presented the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and…
