The drone that flies itself

There’s no need for a remote control to watch this drone fly safely without colliding with houses, bridges or other drones. Its maker, Ascending Technologies, fitted the Firefly not just with six rotors but also with ultra-lightweight RealSense cameras by Intel to give it 360°, 3D vision. The drone can manage its own trajectories, enabling it explore out of reach places for military, commercial or medical uses.
