Coordinated Drones Fly In Synchronized Flocks

Coordinated Drones Fly In Synchronized Flocks

Scientists at the University of Southern California are mastering the coordinated flight of ‘flocks’ of drones.

Flying a single autonomous drone already has its challenges. Now multiply that by 25. That’s what scientists at the University of Southern California are doing: creating ‘flocks’ of coordinated drones capable of intricate, synchronized maneuvers.

Their aerial performances are the result of complicated coding and algorithms – which ensure that each drone maintains its own path, avoiding the airspace of its neighbors. The drones are monitored by a series of cameras which track and coordinate their every move, relaying information between the robots and a master computer.
