Zurich Researchers Teach Drone to Dodge with Dynamic Obstacle Avoidance

One of the many things preventing urban drone deliveries reaching Amazone Prime levels of mass adoption is the threat of interference, whether that’s from pets, kids, thieves, gun-toting neighbors or rogue footballs. Researchers at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, are working on sense and avoid technology that could provide drones with a more dynamic form […] The post Zurich Researchers Teach Drone to Dodge with Dynamic Obstacle Avoidance appeared first on DRONELIFE.

TORUS: Atmospheric Scientists Using Drones To Understand Tornadoes

During spring and summer supercell thunderstorms roam through the central United States, bringing with them lightning, huge hailstones and dangerously high winds. Some develop tornadoes, and a collective of atmospheric scientists led by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are using drones to better understand why. The TORUS research project (Targeted Observation by Radars and UAS of […] The post TORUS: Atmospheric Scientists Using Drones To Understand Tornadoes appeared first on DRONELIFE.

Gunning For GoPro: DJI Launches Osmo Action Camera

Not too long ago DJI played a major role in forcing GoPro out of the consumer drone market. Admittedly, it didn’t help that GoPro’s Karma drone started falling out of the sky at random, but the timing of the release of the original Mavic Pro was another nail in the coffin for the US action […] The post Gunning For GoPro: DJI Launches Osmo Action Camera appeared first on DRONELIFE.
