Autonomous Drones Learn To Fly As A Flock
Hungarian researchers have developed drones that can fly as an autonomous flock, opening new possibilities for the artificial pollination of crops or search and rescue missions. The scientists originally set out to build flying robots to help study collective motion in animals, but ended up with drones that can fly cooperatively without any central control. Rob Muir reports.
