NanoMap: How uncertainty helps this drone fly

A drone which uses models of uncertainty to help it fly has been developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).

The NanoMap system uses depth-sensing technology to measure the environment around it and allows the drone to avoid hitting objects while flying at speeds of 20mph (32km/h).
