Embry-Riddle and the Daytona International Airport have been awarded a Certificate of Authorization for the operation of an autonomous Octocopter. The Octocopter will be able to autonomously fly through a field while monitoring the health of various crops. Early detection of infected crops will allow more effective farming that will result in savings of time and money. The Octocopter is currently being flight tested to demonstrate its safety features.
