Aerospace engineers at MIT have devised an algorithm that combines simulations with data from experiments of a real drone, that helps them find the fastest route around obstacles without crashing. 

The researchers found that a drone trained with their algorithm flew through a simple obstacle course up to 20% faster than a drone trained on conventional planning algorithms.
