How radars will help deliver your pizza!


About the research

Imagine drones could deliver pizzas or packages to your doorstep. Therefore, such a drone would have to be self-navigating, and able to detect obstacles in its path. Most drones are currently equipped with cameras to help navigate, but cameras are quite expensive and they don't perform well in harsh weather and light conditions. That's why Adnan Albaba (Imec - VUB) is developing new algorithms to help drones as well as other autonomous vehicles navigate with radar technology.
