Calgary Research on Vision-Based Navigation for Drones

Dr. Mozhdeh Shahbazi, professor of geomatics engineering at the University of Calgary's Schulich School of Engineering is working on developing autonomous navigation technology for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs.) She anticipates the technology will be used in a next-generation breed of 'intelligent' drones that will aid in everything from search and rescue to aerial evidence collection for law enforcement.
