THE DRONES ARE COMING!!!!!!
That sounds like a line from a terrible Tom Cruise movie, but imagine you were lost in the woods on a hike and it was a drone that found you.
Then you would say, ” THE DRONES ARE COMING, YIPPEEEE!” See how different that is?
The University of Zurich has designed a drone that uses incredibly complex software and a camera to identify the human made paths in the woods and autonomously fly along them. Given how undermanned and underfunded search and rescue teams tend to be, having a drone do some of the work to free up the human search and rescuers to be doing other jobs would be invaluable.
