Can high voltage power lines provide a super highway for drones?

Sure, a drone can land on a powerline. That's a standard task like the "peg in hole problem" for robotarms. The aim is to maneuver a UAV near to a highvoltage line and eating all the energy. The ...

Can I create an autonomous robot that can adapt its strategy using machine learning?

I think the problem you're going to find is that machine learning requires learning. If the goals or objective vary just a little, then manually adjusting the software shouldn't be too difficult (if ...

Neural Nework code or library for MSP430G2553 microcontroller

One page linked says the algorithm is fine for the ATmega328's 2KB of SRAM, another is for the ATmega2560's 8KB of SRAM. Your MSP430G2553 has 0.5KB of RAM, so I think that's the primary reason you ...

In Dynamic Motion Primitives, why we need to approximate f if f_target is given?

The idea of Dynamic movement primitives is to encode a target motion into a flexible machinery that can quickly generalise to new instances, but still imitating the overall shape of the target motion. ...
