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.

    Weaponize Them!…

    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

    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.

    Coding and alorithms? No way!!!

  11. Miguel De Jesus Tavares on September 12, 2020 at 11:15 am

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

  12. Domo Brah on September 12, 2020 at 11:19 am

    Incredible! I love when tech becomes autonomous!

  13. Ralgondo on September 12, 2020 at 11:21 am

    already got idiots recording this shit from a distance thinking it’s aliens

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