Autonomous Helicopters

Claire Tomlin, formerly of Stanford and currently with Berkeley, is pushing the envelope of aerospace design, building a new class of autonomous helicopters, with support from the National Science Foundation.  These aircraft don’t need a “pilot” steering them remotely because they navigate themselves.  Applications include the military, civilian search and rescue, and more.
