Are face-reading blimps and quadcopters in "top hats" the future of drone safety?

Georgia Tech is developing safer drones, including autonomous blimps that can read faces and gestures As more autonomous aerial vehicles crowd into the airspace, we’re going to need some measures to keep them from crashing into each other. Air traffic control networks are in development, but in the meantime researchers at Georgia Tech are teaching drones a few simple rules to help them avoid collisions on their own. When humans do need to interact with the drones, an autonomous blimp, kitted out with gesture and facial recognition, could be our mediator. Before they took this idea to the skies, […]
