Topic(s) Autonomous Agile Aerial Robots

Large autonomous vehicles already exist and have a variety of functions, however they do have some flaws. Autonomous agile aerial robots are much smaller and seek to solve problems not previously attempted because of the size limitations, such as search and rescue in small spaces. These robots are capable of mapping out their environment and figuring out the best path to take given certain obstacles. They can learn and remember maneuvers previously used to move through a space and they can work in union with other aerial robots to complete a larger task.
