Watch a drone dodging a SWORD as researchers test gadget in video

Researchers used an offline-online system to teach the droneSensors gather real-time data of area, send it to computer then the droneUsed a collision detection module and obstacle-dodging algorithmPlans to add ‘a range of visual, laser, and ultrasonic sensors’ in the futureBy Stacy Liberatore For Dailymail.com Published: 01:18, 6 April 2016 | Updated: 01:24, 6 April 2016 Picking a fight with a drone may seem a bizarre way of testing your theories – but one Stanford researcher has done just that.Ross Allen, a researcher at Stanford, decided the perfect way to test his drone avoidance system was to attack it with a sword.Wearing full fencing gear, he recorded a video putting the drone through its collision avoidance paces. Scroll down for video  Researchers are testing quadrotor drones with the ability to dodge…
