Autonomous drone flight That is the objective with drone ser #2
Autonomous – able to operate on their own without humans controlling them from somewhere with a joy stick. Some autonomous machines are run by artificial intelligence which allows them to learn, getting better each time. These autonomous drone applications are having an impact in many industries, including telecommunications, energy & utilities, oil & gas, insurance and public sector.

The online community building with the navio2 is robust and active
