Engineers at MIT have developed a virtual reality system for drones to reduce crashes during training sessions. Called “Flight Goggles,” the system utilizes “a motion capture system, an image rendering program, and electronics that enable the team to quickly process images and transmit them to the drone,” according to an MIT press release. The drones are programmed to “see” the images rendered by the system and can “train” in a gymnasium lined with motion-capture cameras to track their movement. Typically, practicing with drones must take place in expansive areas as they are likely to suffer frequent crashes. [MIT]
