Brain-Controlled Drones Forecast in Next Five Years

(ScienceDaily) A single operator using emerging human-brain interfaces can now control a swarm of drones, making possible new classes of applications, according to Panos Artemiadis, director of the Human-Oriented Robotics and Control (HORC) Lab at Arizona State University. Until now, the use of multiple drones required multiple human operators–which presented a coordination problem.
Artemiadis thinks it is likely that drone swarms using human-brain interface mechanisms will, in the next three to five years, make inroads where individually controlled UAVs cannot.
