Technique protects robot teams’ communication network

Technique protects robot teams’ communication network
In the latest issue of the journal Autonomous Robots, researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and their colleagues present a technique for preventing malicious hackers from commandeering robot teams’ communication networks. The technique could provide an added layer of security in systems that encrypt communications, or an alternative in circumstances in which encryption is impractical.

Drones learn how to land on moving targets

Drones learn how to land on moving targets
The buzzword in drone research is autonomous - having the unmanned aerial vehicle do most or all of its own flying. It's the only realistic way that drones will have commercially viable uses such as delivering that roll of toilet paper to customers, said Manish Kumar, associate professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Cincinnati's College of Engineering and Applied Science.

Will the drone become a vital part of tradespersons toolkits?

Will the drone become a vital part of tradespersons toolkits?
Drones are fast becoming an important piece of kit for many professions, now widely known for aiding photographers, videographers and emergency response teams on a regular basis. But figures from last year’s UK Drone Usage Report revealed another lesser-known industry that also relies on this technology to benefits its services.

Are drones disturbing marine mammals?

Marine researchers have made sure that their research drones aren't disturbing their research subjects, shows a report in Frontiers in Marine Science. And they're hoping that others will follow their example to help protect wildlife in the future. We've all seen the videos - drones and wildlife don't always get along. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) offer unparalleled scientific footage and insight, but how can wildlife researchers be sure that they're not disturbing the very animals they're hoping to study?

Dragonfly to become the smallest aerial vehicle

Dragonfly to become the smallest aerial vehicle
A micro-aerial vehicle is in project focus with surprising components: an actual dragonfly insect being steered to create an aerial vehicle smaller lighter and stealthier than anything that is man made. We are used to scientists wanting to copy insects when engineering the design of aerial items. Well, here the goal of the project is to turn insects into cyborg drones. The research and development project is going on at Cambridge, MA-based Draper.

Drone training offered for EuroUSC students

Drone training offered for EuroUSC students
Many were disappointed to learn that EuroUSC lost its NQE status for drone training recently. In light of this news, many current clients who enrolled on its BNUC-S course to attain a PfCO are left wondering what will happen to their training and of course, their money.

Will you soon need to pass a test to fly your drone?

Will you soon need to pass a test to fly your drone?
UK government ministers have today proposed a safety test for drone users following a consultation on drone safety. This follows a raft of developments around the world as governments begin to crack down on irresponsible drone use.
