UAV finds 'dummy bushwalker'

Chew the fat on any non-RC subject. It's a free-for-all but common rules of decency do apply so act like adults and don't embarrass yourself by trolling or cuss'n.

UAV finds 'dummy bushwalker'

Interesting bit of news I spotted on Stuff this morning, forgive me in advance if it is old news to the rest who have already seen it.

An unmanned aerial drone was able to find a dummy of a missing bushwalker with no human intervention in what CSIRO believes is a world-first for a non-military drone

This competition is a great idea and I like this quote especially

"We're all amateurs; prior to this project none of us had any sort of experience with UAVs or aircraft or autopilots. Over the last two years we taught ourselves everything there is to know about this," Dade said.

Good on ya mates :D
