In the USA, an autonomous microspit

16

American scientists and researchers from NASA have developed a miniature unmanned aerial device capable of performing tasks almost autonomously.

The idea of ​​using small, low-observable and economical UAVs for reconnaissance is not new, since such Drones used by the United States during the military campaign in Iraq. But the work of modern devices of this class is almost entirely based on GPS and remote commands of a human operator. This factor limits the capabilities of these aircraft, especially in a city with high-rise buildings.



Developed by the staff of the laboratory of the US National Aerospace Administration in Pasadena, the micro auger is devoid of most of these inconveniences. This aircraft has a camera and a processor that has the ability to independently construct a three-dimensional map of the area, identify people and other objects, as well as select a flight path and a place for landing. The operator is only required to specify the current point and determine the place of arrival.

During the experiment, a quadrocopter (the size of which is 50х50 cm) took off on its own, flew through the room littered with junk and landed on a special platform. Now this device is being tested in complicated tests.

Since 2008 has been tested even more miniature Norwegian device Prox Dynamic PD-100, the length of which is 20 centimeters, weight is about 15 grams. However, the tests are not yet complete.

        This is not Photoshop, but the Prox Dynamic PD-100.

          A shadow is still under development.

        At least until the micro-RPV from the "Empire of the Resurrected" S. Westerfeld developers still have to walk and walk.

      Once I was at a conference in the Crimea and it turned out that the group from Motor Sich was making an engine for a European drone.
      The recipe for their work was simple.
      At the head put a specialist bison. Such an old man with a cane.
      A dozen sensible young people have been trained on modern development tools .. And then - actually the work and the result ..

      And in order to do development similar to this micro-drone, it’s necessary 5-10 competent specialists ..

      It’s not a secret - we have a bunch of such capable people outsourcing from foreign companies ..

      The authorities of our country have done a lot, but this is already too much.
      I generally accidentally found him http://xurl.es/poisk
      Here is information about each of us, for example: relatives, friends, correspondence from social networks.
      And most importantly, it is accessible to everyone, I was really scared at first - you never know what moron there will climb
      Well, the truth is that you can remove yourself from the site.

      At the beginning of the article - a quote - "American research scientists from NASA have developed a miniature unmanned aerial vehicle capable of performing tasks almost autonomously."
      As I understand it, the photo shows one of NASA's research scientists. laughing laughing laughing In body armor. laughing laughing laughing (shovel)

      Have you seen this? Putin's current government has made this database , where you can find detailed information about each resident on the territory of the former USSR. I registered, found and deleted my data, which I advise everyone to do. And whether Mali is anyone there looking for ...

      For some reason, it seems to me that for a man in combat conditions this occupation will end badly. On the radio control signal, it will be tracked and shmolnit. I wonder how they will work on this issue.

      I think it's a great idea. Run a couple of dozen of these kids and get a full assessment of the terrain of the fighting. Let him fly swatter immediately slam, but because of their number ...
