It has been said that via a study of the eyesight of insects, independent drone flights may be aided immensely. Here culture mimics Nature in a beautiful manner.

Scientists studied how insects find their way around objects in Nature. This selfsame system may be applied to drone robots. These drones may choose their flight paths on their own once their camera systems are fine-tuned so that they may navigate their way through space.

Humans will finally be out of the picture. Bees find their way easily through thick and lush forest vegetation. This was studied in order to apply it to drone technology.

The bees found tiny chinks in the verdure to go through. Such vision complexity could be reproduced in drones. At least the scientists are busy working on it.

The art lies in avoiding impacts with objects in space. For this to take place, care is needed. Insects such as the green orchid bee gauge the light intensity and quality to avoid collisions with objects.

They never crash into stuff and this is an important skill. It is a likelihood that other animals use the same mechanism to be more physically articulate about their complex environments.

Small, featherweight drones will probably be built in the next five to ten years. They will be able to navigate of their own accord. This will be a giant step in the world of AI.

Math models and digital mechanisms will be employed to make this dream a reality. As for human intervention, it will be a thing of the past. These will be autonomous drones. The crucial factor will be the quality of light and its ins and outs which the drones will employ to find their destinations in a jiffy.
