Multi Vehicle SWARMS at MIT

Vehicle Tracking
The Quad Rotor multi vehicle flight test is running to see if 2 vehicles can fly together and track what is happening on the ground. The UAVs fly around controlled by a ground computer and can detect stationary and moving objects. Once detected they can be set to follow the moving object and if the object moves in to another zone then a different UAV can take over. This project is run by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and they are trying to build a fully automated system for ground surveillance and it seems they are making great headway. The link at the bottom of this article points you in the direction of some demonstrations and you will see that it’s working very well!
