Watch how Intel’s depth cameras allow you to play ‘drone ping pong’
It is all good and enjoyable if you get to fly a drone, however there are occasions whenever you want it might fly round by itself with out crashing into issues. As we came upon at Intel’s CES keynote simply now, one answer to that is to equip the machine with depth cameras; and in Ascending Applied sciences’ case, it went with six of Intel’s RealSense depth cameras for its AscTec Firefly. The result’s a drone that pushes itself away when individuals strategy it, which allowed the demonstrators to humor the viewers with a recreation of “drone ping pong”: one participant would stroll as much as the Firefly to cross it to a different participant. We additionally watched one other Firefly clear an impediment course autonomously, however belief us, the primary demo is extra entertaining (however perhaps creepy for some). See for your self after the break.
