Hypepotamus talks with computer science professor about latest drone research

MARIETTA, Ga. (Jul 18, 2017) — With companies like Amazon and UPS  exploring unmanned aircraft delivery as a shipping option sooner rather than later, the drone may soon become your preferred delivery method. Drones have a lot of advantages — faster delivery and traffic alleviation among them. But once the technology becomes more readily available, how will companies ensure that their drones are taking the most efficient routes through the sky?

This problem caught the eye of Donghyun (David) Kim, assistant professor of computer science at Kennesaw State University and an expert in computer algorithm optimization.
