WATCH: Robotic Plane Is Truly Fly This robot is fly.
MIT’s Robust Robotics program is showing off its nifty new robotic plane that navigates itself. Using only on-board sensors, the plane requires neither pilot, remote control nor GPS. A basic Intel Atom processor powers the little self-guided plane that could.
MIT team leaders are hoping to eventually trick out the plane with independent mapping, according to Dvice.com. Then it could truly be an autonomous ‘bot that could fly into duty for military or rescue ops, the site explained.
