"A new robot 'brain', based in part on the workings of the human inner ear, has enabled the production of the world's first small robotic helicopter that can see and think for itself, say Australian researchers."

I saw this on my local news the other day, I believe the Australian x-call importer Fred Proos is involved with it.

I'd like to see how smart it is when the engine quits

MIT the greatest engineering school in the country already has something like this. MIT's heli is completely autonomous and has a full range of sensors for in-flight stability. Infact the last time i checked their site, they had the damn thing doing loops and rolls.

rover,

MIT has a pretty cool UAV, but this one is different. It doesn't use GPS [or any other external source] to gather information on its heading, velocity, or whatever.
"This is the first UAV to use computerised vision with all its equipment on board," he says. "It can maintain its position without using GPS, which hasn't been done before."
