Crash-proof drone Researchers in Zurich have developed a drone that does not crash – even if one of its rotors fails. University of Zurich teaches drones tricks Thanks to a navigation algorithm, drones are learning to autonomously perform acrobatic maneuvers. Using simulations, the autonomous aircraft are trained to become faster, more agile, and more efficient. Researchers at the University of Zurich develop extremely agile drones Researchers at the University of Zurich (UZH) have developed a system that enables flying robots to be very agile. A new type of camera allows autonomous drones to respond much faster than if they were controlled by a human pilot. Drones and AI provide information about the melting ice How fast is the ice melting in Antarctica? Autonomous drones and AI could help reduce the uncertainty of sea-level rise. Aerial water drone hitchhikes An international research team with Empa participation has developed a drone that can glide through water as well as fly through the air. To save energy, it attaches itself to other objects for a ride. Drone searches independently Researchers have developed a drone that can locate missing people in dense forests. It performs all calculations on board, flies fully autonomously and continuously optimizes its flight path. App against fear There is a new app that uses 360-degree images shot by drones to help people overcome their fear of heights.
