We are awaiting the next breakthrough in AI: to be able to pilot a vehicle better than a human can. In novel and challenging environments, a vehicle can easily get lost, use up all its energy or collide into other objects. The faster the vehicle can problem-solve, the faster it can safeguard the passengers. Split-second decisions can make all the difference. 


In my project, I race a drone through an obstacle course, and I train it using various forms of artificial intelligence. By bringing drones to their physical limits, they can serve as a testing ground for better decision-making and energy-efficiency in autonomous vehicles.
