Other recent advances have produced drones with the ability to grab stationary objects in-flight using a mechanical claw, much like a taloned bird grabbing prey. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania are currently advancing the “avian-inspired”¯ drone’s capabilities in hopes to be able to literally snatch humans off the street. Read more:

Here some extracts from an article of today:

 

Drones with face detection cameras obey visual and vocal commands

The project, which was presented during the annual IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS) earlier this month in Japan, revealed the ability of multiple drones to obey group commands through the use of face detection cameras and voice command recognition.

Using a facial scoring system, each drone’s camera determines which direction a user is focused towards. Once the drone with the highest “face score”¯ has been targeted, small color-changing LEDs provide confirmation to the user.
