+ - MIT drone finds its way using Kinect vision->

Submitted by

garymortimer writes "This MIT multicopter is able to fly in GPS denied environments by creating a 3D map of its surroundings on the fly (no pun intended) based on point clouds generated by a Kinect. Also pretty handy for avoiding trees and other obstacles outside at low level.

Moores law is making this happen in small drones quick! This processing is onboard, unlike other systems that depend on motion capture rigs."
