SANJIV.jpgOver the years, our perceptions about drones have changed. What used to be treated as big bad flying machines are now being used by companies like Amazon to deliver goods to the customers. Using the drones in the air is fine until we realise that we need some kind of protocols to direct the drone traffic. Some of the world’s brightest minds are already working on the problem and the most prominent of them is Sanjiv Singh, a Research Professor at the Robotics Institute of the Carnegie Mellon University. He is also the CEO of Near Earth Autonomy, where a team of researchers are working on ‘pushing the envelope in autonomy for aerial vehicles’. Singh has a BSc degree in computer science from the University of Denver, an MS in electrical engineering from the Lehigh University and a PhD in robotics from the Carnegie Mellon University. Apart from working on collision avoidance for air vehicles, he is the founding editor of the Journal of Field Robotics and is involved in an effort to bring automation to speciality agriculture robots.
