Drones hitting a tree or other obstacles is not fun to see. Today’s drones are getting smart enough to offer basic obstacle detection and avoidance. A researcher fro MIT’s CSAIL has developed an obstacle-detection system that allows a drone to fly through trees and avoid them at 30 miles per hour.

PhD student Andrew Barry is behind this idea. His stereo-vision algorithm enables a drone to detect objects and map its surroundings in real-time. The software is open-source and operates at 120 frames per second. More information is available here.
