Film Tech: Autonomous Drones (Video)

Yes there are autonomous drones out there on the market already, but today’s “autonomous” offerings are just sensational beginnings to what fully autonomous drones are going to be able to do. We’re talking about sentient drones with built-in knowledge and algorithms on everything from filmmaking techniques (shot sizes, viewing angles, and screen position) to corrective obstacle avoidance and open source technology for developing the drone cinematographers of the future.

You can read more about autonomous drone technology from the developers at MIT.
