Jan 31, 2024 | | Sticky post

What will the future of drone technology look like? It will be fully autonomous. Also with the support of the National Centre of Robotics, research into the autonomous flight of micro UAV systems is carried out within the Institute of Robotics and Cybernetics. In his dissertation, Filip Štec demonstrates using such a system for exploring unknown spaces in the photorealistic simulator NVIDIA Isaac Sim. Reconnaissance flight works on gradually expanding the known space by searching for border areas and navigating to them. It can help rescuers find natural disaster victims or help police find a dangerous offender more quickly. It also shows what a successful collaboration between the academic world and a technology company, Airvolute, can look like. You can learn more in the video below.
