CalTech Uses PyTorch To Build Smooth Landing Drones

Here’s an interesting (and cool) use of AI on drones. Next-generation vehicles such as drones have a hard time landing. Drone controllers usually bring the drone near the ground and then drop it. How low the drone can be brought down depends on the aerodynamics of the drone and other reactions from the ground. Since […]
