Graz University of Technology develops drone technology  

Institute of Computer Graphics and Vision  at Styrian Graz University of Technology wants to enable computers to orientate themselves in a non-standard environment. Research and development work will be carried out within robotics with a focus on artificial intelligence. Together with US chip manufacturer Qualcomm, Graz University of Technology will put its emphasis on developing spatially “seeing” drones that are able to identify objects. The results of the project will be highly relevant for among others Amazon, which wants to utilize the local expertise for its Prime Air delivery system and has announced an investment in Styria´s capital.
