Indian scientists have developed a new software programme that increases the ability of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to land accurately without human intervention.

Developed by the Army Institute of Technology (AIT), the MATLAB software programme automatically increases the accuracy of UAV landing by 97% without the guidance of a remote operator, according to

Software project lead scientist Mahesh Khadtare said the development would greatly circumvent difficulties in the present landing systems of UAVs.

“The landing of the UAV will be controlled by the microprocessor, which will recognise previously collected images of the landing space and accordingly guide the UAV for landing,” he said.

“There will be no additional increase in the equipment to be fitted except the conversion of MATLAB software into an equivalent assembling programme for the UAV.”

AIT will test the software programme on the UAVs in cooperation with the Defence Research and Development Organisation.
