Coordinated drones fly in synchronized flocks

Coordinated drones fly in synchronized flocks

Scientists at the University of Southern California are mastering the coordinated flight of ‘flocks’ of drones.

Flying a single autonomous drone already has its challenges. Now multiply that by 25. That’s what scientists at the University of Southern California are doing: creating ‘flocks’ of coordinated drones capable of intricate, synchronized maneuvers.

Their aerial performances are the result of complicated coding and algorithms – which ensure that each drone maintains its own path, avoiding the airspace of its neighbors. The drones are monitored by a series of cameras which track and coordinate their every move, relaying information between the robots and a master computer.

    Need any custom music for flights

    where can i buy this?

  7. flint fuentes on August 25, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    so this is what disney used at its drone show

  8. aes on August 25, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    next decade taxi drones

  9. Jamari Edwards on August 25, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    It looks like galaga

  10. Daporan on August 25, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Coding and alorithms? No way!!!

  11. Watermelon Arangas on August 25, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    What drones are they using in the video

  12. greg kirby on August 25, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    this is how the star trek holodeck will work but will have holographic for images and soundwaves for touch

  13. IVSR DT on August 25, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    0:45 So easy.

  14. KpopNiDontStop on August 25, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    2 years later China makes the ultimate display of art in the sky with these.

  15. Spackolatious on August 25, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Guess my idea of synchronizing a handful of drones to work as a makeshift, scalable treeshaker by myself is more of a dream now :’D

  16. Jason M on August 25, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Get them to move like birds or a school of fish and you really got something.

  17. picandvideo on August 25, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Nice DJI drones 👍🏼
    I thought USA sanctioning that company.

  18. GuninGames on August 25, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Hey those are parrot mini drones, I recognize the motor noise and there frame

  19. Miguel De Jesus Tavares on August 25, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    How could these drones be used for any of the applications stated if they need fixed cameras around their perimeter to work?

    Your daily dose of internet

  22. Faith Works Studios on August 25, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Who’s the contact? I need more information

  23. Kyle Hagerman on August 25, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    trying to confuse the public with legitimate UFO sightings….now everyone will dismiss legit sightings as "drones"…… disinformation disinformation disinformation then conquer.

  24. ashemgold on August 25, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    2017? Five years ago? Well, what’s new today? Probably got kill droids on the loose. Thanks for giving Skynet exactly what it wanted. I’m not paranoid.

    Watching it after the Tokyo Opening Ceremony!

  29. mrpresidenterey on August 25, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    Boy did this tech explode into the Olympics and super bowl!

  30. Adrian D on August 25, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    Thought my left ear wasn’t working

  31. J.D. Vision on August 25, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    Weaponize Them!…

  32. erica on August 25, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    Came here because of BTS

  33. Sketch my House on August 25, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    Great

    THE LOCUSTS OF REVELATION

  35. kemparo on August 25, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    nah keep dreaming, american government will buy the rights and turn it into weapons.

  36. Bluecavemen on August 25, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    Might as well.turn in your UAV licence and go into RC industry.

  37. Cameron Bean on August 25, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Anyone else here because of daily dose

  38. Give Me The Outdoors on August 25, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    I wanted to see a video like this after playing for hours Call Of Duty Advanced Warfare (Those drones were impressive seeking me out while trying to get into his mansion) with Exo-Suits and the extreme use of drones. Atlas Corporation!! Kevin Spacey (As the villain) was awesome at having this in his plan to take over military defense. Nora at USC (go work for Draper Industries) is doing great work on this.

    This was 5 years ago. Imagine where it’s at now. A privately funded company could end the war in Ukraine rather quickly if this technology was deployed in a military aspect. Example- 100,000 drones divided into sub groups each with specific task. From humanitarian trips into sieges cities…to strategic deployment of incendiary devices or recon on enemy troops. The applications are endless and it’s all ready to go but instead the world prefers mass casualties of all forms of life….not just human.

  40. David Haas on August 25, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Is it bad that I don’t care that much about real world applications and I just want to play with them?

  41. M I K E Y 3 D on August 25, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Well Done

  42. Rudder on August 25, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Damn this was just 4 years ago !!

  43. A Hat on August 25, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    i love you maam!!!!!!!!!!

  45. Domo Brah on August 25, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Incredible! I love when tech becomes autonomous!

  46. Mr SteezyOctopus on August 25, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Hows this work though? Where can I find out
