Flying Smart with Autonomous Vehicles

November 8, 2013

“Flying Smart with Autonomous Vehicles” Awed by the precision flying of the Blue Angels pilots? Imagine autonomous drones performing complex group maneuvers with no human intervention, or satellites orbiting together around the sun, jointly searching for exoplanets. Mehran Mesbahi, Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the UW, offers insights from engineering and biology to reveal how networked “smart” vehicles will take on challenging aerospace missions.
