I 'm sorry if this has been posted before, I couldn't find another reference to it on the site.
Is this the most exciting breakthrough in our lifetimes or have I missed something? It looks like the people at ARCAA have cracked the most horrible sensing problem ever. Is this the end of the line for lasers, sonars and other time-of-flight based sensors?
and video here:
Doesn't clarify if they are using vision. Other projects like the pretty amazing Delft flapping drone are using twin cameras, which, I believe, is not too good for long range. Is this not also the problem for time-of-flight depth cams (Kinect style)? As far as I 'm aware, at long range, the only thing that works (except of course for radar) is LIDAR, which is crazy expensive and heavy. Have I got that wrong?
