This AI Drone is So Smart, it Pilots Itself

Posted in Gear for Men and Photography and Tech

Designed by a team of MIT eggheads and four years in development, Skydio’s R1 pro-grade autonomous quadcopter drone uses advanced AI for its computer vision system, giving users precision flight control without any expertise; it’s so smart, it doesn’t even come with a controller. Rather than GPS stabilization used in most drones, the RI uses 13 onboard cameras to do real-time mapping, path planning, and obstacle avoidance. All controls for the drone, including takeoff, landing and manual controls are managed through Skydio’s mobile app.
