The future of aerial robots on SiriusXM

Russ Altman interviewed David for the Future of Everything on SiriusXM Radio: Making Drones Fly Like BirdsThe interview covers much of the bird research and aerial robot innovation in the lab and also touches upon the research culture and philosophy in our lab. First, they delved into the long-term focus of developing new transformative ideas and technology for enabling drones to fly in complex cluttered and turbulent environments by gleaning these abilities from birds. Finally, they talked about how traditional drone technology can already transform today’s economy and how Stanford students prototype this future in a new class on Aerial Robot Design that David developed together with his lab members.
