Look for NASA’s first-class test cities to manage the drones
NASA has started the last phase of the four-year endeavor to develop a national traffic management system for the drone, which for the first time is testing in cities, beyond the operator’s point of view because in future the unmanned instruments in the draw The business looks to bring. Busy roads and buildings
Multiple drones took air this time on the Reno of the city at the same time, Simulation Testing in a series of emerging technologies that will be used to supply hundreds of small unmanned commercial planes on a day to provide package, pizza and medical supplies.
“This activity is the latest and most technological challenge that we have with unmanned aerial systems,” said David Corsmayer, Associate Director of Research and Technology at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California.
An autonomous drone flew on a roof of a five-storey casino parking garage on Tuesday and landed on another outside terrace across the road. Before returning to the center of the launchpad, it was as a sensor on the adjusted ship for strong winds.
Equipped with GPS, others flew on one another compared to the street lights of the city but were able to avoid falling on the ground through the onboard tracking system associated with NASA computers.
Similar tests have been done in remote and rural areas. The Federal Aviation Administration has authorized individual test flights in the first cities, but never for many drones or outside of the operator’s view.
Reno and Corpus Christi, a new round of trials that continue this summer in Texas, for the first time simulations have added all those scenarios, said Chris Wallach, executive director of Nevada Autonomous Systems Nevada Autonomous Systems, who ran the renowned Reno test Used to be. Vehicle, or UAE
“When we started this project four years ago, many of us would not have thought that we are flying UVV from high-rise buildings with advanced drone systems today,” he said.
The team adopted the “crawl, walk, run” philosophy after starting the test in 2015 and with the simulation of this fourth round NASA’s Ames Research Center, unmanned aircraft system traffic management project manager Ron Johnson said.
