    Paper: Towards a swarm with pocket drones – IROS 2017

    In a previous post, we showed that a tiny 40 gram pocket drone can fly autonomously inside a room. Now we stepped it up a notch, by adding another pocket drone in the mix.  This time, they are not only avoiding the obstacles and walls, but also each […]

    Towards an autonomous pocket drone for indoor navigation

    In recent experiments, we were able to show a 40-gram pocket drone flying inside an indoor environment, autonomously, using nothing but a 4-gram stereo-camera. With a new computer vision method, called Edge-FS, the pocket drone […]
