One of our customers presented their impressive research results in the well known TED talks, which regularly show ideas worth spreading to the world.

In the embedded video, Davide Scaramuzza, Professor of Robotics at the Artificial Intelligence Lab of the University of Zurich, talks about autonomous vision controlled micro UAVs, which could be used for search and rescue, inspection or environment monitoring tasks.

For their research work during the sFly (link: http://www.sfly.ethz.ch/doku.php) project they used our brand new UAV, the AscTec Firefly (link: Firefly), in combination with our also brand new onboard processor board, the AscTec Mastermind (both now available). In their live demonstration you can see the great autonomous performance of this research platform.
