Christian Hugo Hoffmann Talks Drones and Cirque du Soleil on The Drone Girl #drone #droneday


Fun read from The Drone Girl:

DG: I’m guessing the drones all are flying pre-programmed flights — there isn’t someone actually flying them, right?

CH: The drones navigate autonomously, piloting themselves, only supervised by a human operator. To navigate autonomously, these drones require a reliable method for determining their position in space.

DG: I was going to say, I’m guessing you’re not able to rely on GPS since the drones perform indoors.

CH: Since GPS is usually not available indoors, Verity Studios has built a proprietary indoor localization method.
