Scientists Training Search And Rescue Drones To Help Lost Hikers Get Home

A team of researchers and robotics and perception experts develops an algorithm to train drones to follow hiking trails for search and rescue operations. Take a look at how their drones fared against human hikers.(Photo : AAAI Video Competition | YouTube) A team of researchers led by Prof. Davide Scaramuzza have developed a way to train drones to follow forest trails in an effort to assist search and rescue missions for lost hikers. According to the research, Prof. Scaramuzza’s team figured out a method of machine learning through Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) which enables an unsupervised drone to determine the direction of a path using an on-board camera. The system was created by first setting up a hiker with three cameras that cover about 180 degrees of visual information: one…
