NTU-built drones to fly at Singapore Airshow
Uni researchers’ system allows UAVs to fly without crashing into each other
The air force's Black Knights will not be the only ones flying in formation at the Singapore Airshow. A group of drones built by the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) will be showing off some fancy aerial moves as well.
This has been made possible after a research team from the university developed a system to solve the tricky problem of getting drones to move together, without crashing into each other.
A possible use of the system, which took over three years to build, could be to co-ordinate the drones as they search for survivors in a disaster zone.
