#科技头条#【谷歌空中交警系统测试成功  未来将会给满天飞的无人机带来秩序】近日,谷歌母公司Alphabet成功测试了无人机空中交通管制平台,该平台能自动调整无人机的路线来绕过障碍物或避免无人机之间产生碰撞。未来,无人机将会越来越多,其数量甚至会超过传统飞机,因此打造该系统很有必要。另外在商用无人机长距离运送商品,检查输电线路,勘测庄稼时也能发挥重要作用。

Google tests air traffic control system that manages lots of drones

If you've been scratching your head at the FAA's extensive efforts to regulate your personal (or company) drone use, consider the chaos when they start filling the skies. That's why the agency partnered with NASA for a series of nationwide tests to explore potential systems that could track and manage a wide range of drones simultaneously. Google parent company Alphabet's Project Wing tried out its own UAV air traffic control platform yesterday, a system that might one day guide a massive volume of airborne drones to keep them from crashing into buildings, people or each other.

Unsurprisingly, Project Wing's UTM (UAS Air Traffic Management) leans heavily on other Google products like Maps, Earth and Street View to navigate drones around obstacles and plan routes. During yesterday's tests, UTM managed flight paths for multiple UAVs simultaneously, according to the group's blog post. The platform automatically adjusted the routes of three Wing drones on simulated package delivery duty around several airborne Intel and DJI UAVs.

In the future, platforms like UTM will need to plan routes in real-time for a volume of drones, detour them around FAA-mandated no-fly zones (like forest fires) and notify human operators of unexpected deviations. Google plans to have UTM leverage the company's cloud computing infrastructure to handle all these flight paths and adjust them in fractions of a second. It'll probably be some time before a system like UTM is fully capable of managing regional or national drone traffic, but tests like these are promising displays for a future where we'll need a quick-thinking computer megabrain to track and automatically moderate a sky full of UAVs.
