Scientists developed a flight coordination system for hybrid drones

Engineers from MIT and ETH Zurich created a system which successfully operates hybrid drones.

The technology tracks location of drones and chooses the optimum way for them. This system was developed especially for hybrid drones, i.e. drones capable of moving on the ground and flying. Developers say that it can distribute routes for 80 drones so that they overcome obstacles and avoid bumping into each other.

Creators demonstrated how the system works on a small town model featuring 8 drones. The algorithm made a special route for every device – on the ground and aloft.

It is supposed that the development will make it easier for drones to deliver goods.
