Douglas Altshuler on the flight of birds

Listen to Wall Scholar Douglas Altshuler on Roundhouse Radio talk about his research on:

  • the challenge of flight through complex environments
  • the role of vision in bird flight
  • the algorithms that birds use to safely guide their flight
  • how avian visual guidance strategies differ from those of insects and why
  • how understanding avian visual guidance strategies can lead to robust algorithms for self-driving cars and self-piloting aircraft
