ONLINE COVER Can't Touch This. To dodge, you must first perceive. To dodge quickly, you must perceive quickly. Standard frame-based cameras operate with high latencies due to their long exposure times. Thus, these cameras operate too slowly for situations requiring fast reactions. Falanga et al. use event cameras, a bioinspired neuromorphic sensor, that can distinguish between static and dynamic objects with low latency. This month's cover shows a custom-designed drone with event cameras, using only onboard sensing and computation, dodging fast-moving objects in an outdoor setting. [CREDIT: D.
