Incredible computer-controlled drone lands on moving car. The German
<p>The German Aerospace Centre (DLR) has developed a computer-controlled drone that can land automatically, even on a moving target.<br /> <br /> In a video posted by the DLR on YouTube, an unmanned aerial vehicle tracks a specially-kitted out Audi with a net on top to catch it.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> With a barcode like the one you would find on a magazine - along with other trackers on top of the car - the drone tracked the speed and position of the car, slowing down to match the Audi&#39;s 47mph.<br /> <br /> The UAV then drops perfectly onto the centre of the net. This technology could possibly provide a new way for remote vehicles to land safely without the need for landing gear.<br /> <br /> According to E&amp;T Magazine, this could be useful for solar-powered research drones to stay in the air for longer as weight would be reduced. It could also help drones to land in inclement weather.</p>
