Researchers at MIT Develop Virtual Reality Training System for Drones

Drones need extensive training to fly around. However, training drones in a surrounding full of obstacles is an accident-prone exercise, which can translate into the need for engineers repairing or replacing vehicles on frustratingly high pace. Now, engineers at MIT have developed a novel virtual-reality training system for drones, which enables a vehicle to visualize a rich, virtual environment during its flight in an empty physical space. This system, which
