But I would think that if ALL are using the same software and algorithms, it would be easier to resolve than with a mix of unknown, and therefor unpredictable algorithms, isn't it?

If it can avoid bad weather (which it most probably detected by the radar) it can also avoid birds, isn't it?

I wonder how the system will handle a swarm of aircrafts and UAVs which are ALL programmed the same way. Won't that lead to lead to deadlock all over again? A higher "cooperative" layer would need to be placed again.

This is more exciting news. Of course, there will still be a lot of work to be done in actual real-time implementation. And then there are the security issues as well. Hopefully those are being looked at and worked along with the software.

How does the system handle bird strike hazards? Birds can be easily seen on radar, pose clear threats to aircraft, are often found in the vicinity of airports, and are not very cooperative in responding to requests to change their flight paths.

I would expect that such a system would lend itself to mixing UAV and piloted traffic. It sounds like it in fact treats piloted aircraft as if they are UAVs, leaving the pilot as just an emergency backup system.

Simulation is easy.When it comes to real time it needs lot of interfaces. This software needs various inputs from the airport base station. getting them in right time and the speed of processing this data by the software are highly crucial and similarly getting the use full output and sending them to all the flying objects are also delicate. Needs lot more work to be done.

The air travel is already the safest way of transportation. Implementation of such systems will make it safe further. Hopefully we find and implement such systems for ground transportation to be able to save lives.

Great challenge for embedded designs, this is. At DESIGN West, week of March 26, there are plenty of opportunities to investigate all the angles: http://www.ubmdesign.com/sessions/esc

Excellent news. The technology keeps advanced in fast pace. When most people believe auto driving car is advance. Here comes 3D navigation. I can't imagine what is going to be invented if these 2 groups of scientists/ engineers work together. What's the world is going to be like 5/10 years from now?
