Astro Drone App

Post by pbody2013 » 18 Mar 2013, 08:14

Found a new app today as per title by European Space Agency. App for attempting to dock drone to International Space Station and compare one's self to real astronauts lol. Looks interesting and cool part is one can contribute the info from the drones camera during 'docking" by letting them extract "abstract mathematical features" to "improve capabilities such as autonomous docking,landing,and obstacle avoidance" So if some astronaut smashes into the ISS just remember YOU had a hand in it :lol:

i havent had much luck with it yet, Drone seems to gain altitude on it's own as if it's searching autonomous mode. Have to spend some more time with. Neat concept though.
