The Mind of a Quadrotor
Welcome to The Air Force Collaboratory's second project--Mind of a Quadrotor. Visit http://airforce.com/collaboratory to work with U.S. Air Force engineers to develop the next generation of quadrotors. Quadrotors can see and do things humans can't. The only thing they can't do is think like a human. But maybe you can change that. This project will further the development of autonomous quadrotor systems--teaching them to think and act with minimal human intervention. At the conclusion of this project, all the research and code will be shared with the open-source quadrotor community to apply to their efforts.
