The drone will learn to independently change the flight path

It seems that the obstacles to follow the drone is no longer an obstacle. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are testing a new program that helps drones overcome the route without colliding with trees, rocks, and other objects. The video shows how a drone equipped with special optical sensors easily runs between the trees of an impromptu forest, making an independent decision where it should fly. Using new software, the drone analyzes the free space between obstacles and uses this data to build a new safe route. It can take up to 10 minutes to form a new flight path, however, MIT engineers claim that this problem can be solved by simplifying the system.
