Autonomous Drone Plays Dodge-Ball

In this video, you’ll see how researchers at the University of Zurich have equipped an autonomous drone with an “event camera” that allows it to avoid moving objects while in flight. Event cameras only send data when the pixels in its field of vision change in intensity, so they have super-fast response times. Of course, they’re also very expensive, so it could be some time before commercially available drones have this game-changing equipment.
