Watch: Autonomous drone can avoid mid-air crashes

A video has recently been published by researchers of a drone which is able to dodge moving objects. Drones have been able to avoid stationary objects for years now, but this autonomous drone ducking and diving around a football that is being thrown at it is a real game-changer.

The video, which was shared by researchers from the University of Zurich, was part of a project by Davide Scaramuzza’s Robotics and Perception Group. The group recently published a paper around studying the effects that latency in perception can have on how quickly robots are able to navigate through an unfamiliar environment.
