How drone navigates through forests and buildings in real time without intricate maps

  • Staff Reporter

Researchers at MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have devised a a new system called NanoMap – a way to teach small drones to see and detect the environment they fly through rather than depend on strict, intricately put together maps for navigation.Traditional navigation systems usually have images or maps which the drone uses to stay on path constantly. While this might work in a static and ideal environment, it does not really exist in the real world.
