A wide perspective of the current state of the art in autonomous aerial vehicles. Speakers will explore development and challenges for everything from small delivery-style drones to full-scale electric flight. Development of autonomous air vehicles has been ongoing for quite some time, but has become more pressing recently, after regulation changes have let in a little room for commercial enterprises.
