Using AirSim to train an autonomous racing drone

Using AirSim to train an autonomous racing drone

Very cool research from Microsoft on using their AirSim simulators to train racing drones for the real world: Humans subconsciously use perception-action loops to do just about everything, from walking down a crowded sidewalk to scoring a goal in a community soccer league. Perception-action loops—using sensory input to decide on appropriate action in a continuous real time loop —are at ...

Microsoft AirSim drone racing at NeuroIPS

From the Microsoft Research Team: Drone racing has transformed from a niche activity sparked by enthusiastic hobbyists to an internationally televised sport. In parallel, computer vision and machine learning are making rapid progress, along with advances in agile trajectory planning, control, and state estimation for quadcopters. These advances enable increased autonomy and reliability for drones. More recently, the unmanned aerial ...
