New algorithms allow an autonomous robotic plane to dodge obstacles in a subterranean parking garage, without the use of GPS. For decades, academic and industry researchers have been working on control algorithms for autonomous helicopters – robotic helicopters that pilot themselves, rather than requiring remote human guidance. Dozens of research teams have competed in a series of autonomous-helicopter challenges posed by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International...

By Hoffman, Ross N Ponte, Rui M; Kostelich, Eric J; Blumberg, Alan; Szunyogh, Istvan; Vinogradov, Sergey V; Henderson, John M ABSTRACT Data assimilation approaches that use ensembles to approximate a Kalman filter have many potential advantages for oceanographic applications. To explore the extent to which this holds, the Estuarine and Coastal Ocean Model (ECOM) is coupled with a modern data assimilation method based on the local ensemble transform Kalman filter (LETKF), and a series of...
