Now researchers from Intel Labs, University of Zurich and ETH Zurich have used privileged learning to train autonomous drones to fly extreme acrobatic maneuvers using only onboard sensing and computation. Our visual navigation engine, shown on the This paper provides a framework for using reinforcement learning to allow the UAV to navigate successfully in such environments. This paper presents our research on the development of navigation systems of autonomous drone for delivering items that uses a GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) and a compass as the main tools in drone. In the R&D project Connected Drone 2, eSmart Systems has, together with the 22 Norwegian utilities in the project, taken advantage of the power of digital twins to develop deep learning algorithms for semi-autonomous drone navigation. Art (SoA), fully autonomous vision-based navigation system based on deep learning on top of a UAV visual navigation engine consuming less than 284mW at peak (64mW in the most energy-efficient configuration), fully integrated and in closed-loop control within an open source COTS CrazyFlie 2.0 nano-UAV.

Deep reinforcement learning for drone navigation using sensor data Victoria J. Hodge1 • Richard Hawkins1 • Rob Alexander1 Received: 26 November 2019/Accepted: 4 June 2020 The Author(s) 2020 Aract Mobile robots such as unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) can be used for surveillance, monitoring and data collection in In this paper, we propose an autonomous UAV path planning framework using deep reinforcement learning approach. Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Air Traffic Control, Hierarchical Deep Reinforcement Learning I. requirements, as well as, minimize delay. The contributions of the paper can be enumerated as below: (1)We propose a deep learning architecture for autonomous indoor navigation in corridor scenarios. Whether piloted by a human or an autonomous drone, our navigation algorithm acts as a guide while the pilot focuses on flying the drone safely. The grand purpose of our research is to deliver important medical aids for patients in emergency situations and implementation in agriculture in Indonesia, as part of the … Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are commonly used for missions in unknown environments, where an exact mathematical model of the environment may not be available. Their mini-drone, presented in a paper pre-published on arxiv, can run aboard an end-to-end, closed-loop visual pipeline for autonomous navigation powered by a state-of-the-art deep learning algorithm. ∙ 0 ∙ share . Their research has already yielded a fully autonomous drone flight through a 1 km forest path while traveling at 3 m/s, the first flight of its kind according to Nvidia. Speaking at the 2017 GPU Technology Conference (GTC), a team of engineers from Nvidia believe the solution to having freely autonomous drones lies in deep learning. This approach will help the quadcopter to navigate in extreme scenarios where 3D map generation of the surrounding can be erroneous. Motivation The original proposal of an autonomous air traffic control system was from Heinz Erzberger and his NASA colleagues, Improving efficiency and quality of drone power line inspections Trained exclusively in simulation, the resulting policy can be directly deployed in real-world drones without any fine-tuning on real data. We conducted our simulation and real implementation to show how the UAVs can … Autonomous UAV Navigation: A DDPG-based Deep Reinforcement Learning Approach.
