Landing drones smoothly is not as easy as some companies make it look. CAST researchers have come up with an AI system to help autonomous drones learn how to land more safely and quickly. The Neural Lander
is a learning-based controller that tracks the position and speed of the drone, and modifies its landing trajectory and rotor speed accordingly to achieve the smoothest possible landing.
This approach enables drones to fly more smoothly and land without any accident. They will also eat up less battery as they land faster.
