Drone Shoots Internet to Safely Seize Rogue Drones

Sooner or later, drones might patrol the skies, looking for different drones. They may not want lasers or superior know-how to do it — as an alternative, they might merely use a internet.

Researchers from Michigan Technological College’s HIRoLab have created a "drone-catcher" that ensnares rogue unmanned aerial automobiles (UAVs) by capturing out a internet.

It is just like a system developed by Tokyo police to cease drones that fly into restricted airspace. The Japanese UAV is somewhat totally different as a result of it flies with a internet hanging beneath it.

HIRoLab’s drone truly launches a internet. It may well fly autonomously or could be flown by a pilot.

Just like the Japanese drone, the UAV from HIRoLab does not let its prey drop to the bottom, as an alternative carrying it till it could possibly attain a safe space.

Mo Rastgaar, an affiliate professor of mechanical engineering at Michigan Technological College, acquired the thought after he heard concerning the quadcopter that crashed on the White Home garden final January.

"I assumed, ‘If the menace is a drone, you actually do not need to shoot it down — it’d include explosives and blow up,’" he stated in a information launch. "What you need to do is catch it and get it out of there."

Researchers have filed a patent for the drone-catching system.
