Researchers in China demonstrated the ability of an autonomous flying drone swarm to navigate a thick forest it had never before encountered.

The Zheijang University team used commercially available technology to assemble a trajectory planner for the swarm that relies on data from sensors onboard the drones, which the 10-drone swarm processes locally and shares collectively.

The swarm three-dimensionally maps its environment to navigate, and also can perform tasks such as pursuing a human.

These achievements could advance progress toward using swarms for aerial surveillance and disaster response.
