Welcome to the future… where all it takes to control a swarm of drones is the power of your mind. [Read More]
Summary… * Machine-Made
The scientist that heads the Human-Oriented Robotics and Control Lab at Arizona State University has come up with a way to control multiple drones using simply the power of your mind.
Unlike joysticks that allow controlling only one drone at a time, this mind-control technology can handle up to 4 drones collectively.
While the researchers claim to know what section of the brain is responsible for communicating thoughts to the drones, the technology is not yet perfect.
For one, it is key that the controller is completely focused on the task at hand to fly the drone(s) successfully or otherwise the system won’t work.
What’s particularly noteworthy is that this technology allows wider applications since it can also be adapted to support other robotic machines.
