A startup called Exyn Technologies Inc. today revealed #AI software that enables drones to fly autonomously, even in dark, obstacle-filled environments or beyond the reaches of GPS.
A spin-out of the University of Pennsylvania’s GRASP Labs, Exyn uses sensor fusion to give drones situational awareness much like a human’s.
In a demo video shared by the company with TechCrunch, a drone using Exyn’s #AI can be seen waking up and taking in its surroundings.
The startup’s CEO and chairman Nader Elm is hoping Exyn’s #AI will yield new uses for drones, and put drones in places where it’s not safe or easy for humans to work.
Ultimately we want to move from one drone to multiple, collaborating drones that can work on a common mission.
