Hi everyone,

Can a drone fly around a pre-mapped environment using only visual position references?

Unless I have missed out on a new update to technology in the UAS market, no. We generally use software or an app to program a flight plan for autonomous flight. I know some of the driving UVs are using pattern recognition to maintain a lane on a highway but I am not sure that UAVs have reached that stage yet.

By pattern recognition are you talking about lines on the road, sign posts or something else?

Yes, generally the striping on a highway is what is being used.

Ok.......who do I need to speak to, to create a custom navigation "app" "software" "program" "autopilot".

Not my area of specialization. I have no idea.

Welcome aboard the forums @Thomo - hope you can find someone to work through this. It sounds like a very big challenge with big potential...
