A UCAM student creates his own artificial intelligence software for drones


Although it seems that only companies like Google, Amazon, DJI ... have the most qualified engineers of the moment in their ranks, the truth is that in Spain there are still many great developers such as José Antonio Rubio López-Atalaya, a student of the Computer Engineering Degree at the Catholic University of Murcia, UCAM, who has managed to develop software capable of making drones learn to perform their tasks intelligently.

For this project, its creator has used techniques based on artificial intelligence. Thanks to this, any type of unmanned aircraft can perform its takeoffs and landings in a much safer way. In addition to this, this peculiar software helps any device to detect and avoid obstacles that may be encountered during its flights. Going into a little more detail, tell you that a neural network so that any device that makes use of it can learn in a similar way to the way a human brain does.

José Antonio Rubio López-Atalaya, from UCAM, has managed to develop a complex artificial intelligence system for drones.

Based on the statements of José Antonio Rubio López-Atalaya, apparently this software, with more development time invested, could reach serve as support in manned flights assisting, for example, in emergency situations. A clear case of assistance would be that the software could take control of the aircraft in a hypothetical case in which the pilot fainted, thus allowing the aircraft in question to land autonomously and safely.
