Drones Must Learn To Navigate Populated Areas

CBS Houston

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — For drones to make it to the big time, they will need to learn to get around in towns and cities — without falling on car hoods or crashing into pedestrians.

Technology has advanced to the point where hobbyists can fly the unmanned aircraft with their iPhones. But nobody has yet developed a successful system for the devices to sense and avoid other objects like trees, streetlights, buildings and even other drones.

That ability to be fully autonomous will be critical before legions of drones can buzz over our neighborhoods.

Similar technology does exist. Commercial jets, for instance, are able to detect other planes in the sky and warn pilots of mountains in their path. The problem is how to make the detection system small, light and cheap enough to work on drones.

Military drone-maker Aurora Flight Sciences, of Manassas, Virginia, is trying to tackle the…

Extreme Cold Continues Through The Weekend

CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Don’t let the clear, sunny skies fool you – it’s still freezing outside.

Saturday will continue to see sub-zero temperatures with wind chill. But the afternoon sunshine should help the temperatures rise a little.

“It’ll be a little more tolerable by lunch time,” said meteorologist Kristin Emery.

The sunny skies won’t last long though, as another storm system is headed toward Pittsburgh after the weekend.

“It will be a quiet 48 hours until we get another system coming in,” said Emery.

It’s expected to bring a wintry mix of sleet and snow Sunday night into Monday morning.

Next week will continue to warm up a bit, with highs in the low 30s.
