Here’s a video of a swarm of quadrotor drones performing a light show. A great demonstration, showing that drones can be used for benign purposes. The good part of video starts at around the 4 minute mark:
This video is hot. It’s a swarm of quadcopters performing fast, aggressive maneuvers using convex optimization. Intriguing! Let’s just make sure we install a kill switch on these devices, so that we’ll be safe from swarms of rogue micro-drones.
Filmmaker Timo Arnall has put together a collection of clips that show us the world through the eyes of robots and machines. It shows systems and algorithms at work, as robots count cars, track motion, analyze traffic and recognize human faces.
