Are you excited for Raffaello D'Andrea's upcoming "Engineering the Future" seminar Feedback Control and the Coming Machine Revolution on October 13th? You can get a taste of what's to come by checking out D’Andrea’s amazing presentation at TEDGlobal 2013, as he demonstrates the athleticism of quadcopters that use sensors and algorithms to stabilize and respond in astounding ways. http://ow.ly/BPIe6
In a robot lab at TEDGlobal, Raffaello D'Andrea demos his flying quadcopters: robots that think like athletes, solving physical problems with algorithms that help them learn. In a series of nifty demos, D'Andrea show drones that play catch, balance and make decisions together -- and watch out for an I-want-this-now demo of Kinect-controlled quads.
