An algorithm that helps drones to fly around obstacles: New research update

The world has to be ready to witness faster-flying drones, says a team of researchers at MIT after they devised an algorithm that helps drones find the fastest route around obstacles without crashing. It combines the simulations of drones flying in a virtual space and the data from examinations of a real drone flying through the same course in a real space. The new algorithm trains the drone to fly through obstacles at a speed of 20 percent faster than the conventional one. “At high speeds, there is intricate aerodynamics…
