Drones will soon be the guardian angels for lost hikers

Drone with AI for search and rescue missions_1

Drones are becoming a major tool in search & rescue operations with quite a lot of them already being tested for the same. The next step in making drones do all the decision-making and fly autonomously in search of human trails in the forest is by providing AI to the flying machines. For this a team from the University of Zurich, Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and NCCR Robotics have developed a machine-learning software which allows drones to identify and follow man-made trails in a confusing forest. That would be able help for search & rescue teams on the lookout for missing hikers.
