Swarms of tiny coordinated micro-quadcopters

Tuesday, 1 March, 2016

The impossibly gifted Raffaello D’Andrea is a Canadian/Italian/Swiss engineer, artist, entrepreneur and professor of dynamic systems and control at ETH Zurich. He’s taking the concept of autonomous flight and propelling it beyond the popular perception of drones into areas where no one has gone before. What could one do with a swarm of tiny coordinated micro-quadcopters? It’s hard to say at the moment, but we can now begin to think about the use of such technologies.

Raffaello D’Andrea spoke at TED2016: Dream, a week-long conference about ideas that took place from February 15 to 19 in Vancouver.
