National News // Jan. 14, 2021

Researchers in Zurich have developed what they call is a crash proof drone. One of the main reasons for drones losing control is a failure of one of the four rotors.

Using an algorithm, the new drone will be able to orientate itself before coming in for a controlled landing.

The system uses GPS tracking systems to accurately place itself which means it can overcome uncontrolled spinning, which is normally the result of a failed motor.
