TED Talks feat. the AscTec Hummingbird

10. June 2013

In a robot lab at TEDGlobal, Raffaello D’Andrea demos his flying quadcopter – an AscTec Hummingbird with a special configuration. He is showing our robot, while trying to make it think like athletes and solve physical problems with algorithms that help it learn in progress.

D’Andrea is professor at the  ETH Zurich (Federal Institute of Technology Zurich), one of our great customers and pioneer on that domain. The institute is using our innovative UAVs for research and development. To demonstrate the ability of that robots they produced a series of astonishing action clips starring our multicopters.
