concerning this safety topic, it may be also of interest that there is the political discussion in Germany/EU to allow a regulated operation of UAS in BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) mode which has many scientific and of course commercial applications (even though the private UAS use will probably be more restricted in Germany). One of the discussed requirements for BVLOS operation (besides some kind of pilot licences, redundancy and mechanisms like parachutes) will for sure be "geofencing" (which is virtually the same as obstacle avoidance). Thus I think this will be a must in the near future. However some kind of geofencing is already implemented if I'm right: the max_dist_from_home routine. May be that can be generalized to set other way points with a circle line (distance) which must not be exceeded (optionally in either dircection, not nearer or not farer away)? Of course the reaction should not be "home mode" or "kill mode" as it is in the moment, but just a turn away. Just some thoughts ..

More and more drone company or orgnization have obstacle avoidance function
for there project and I believe it will become more improtant for drone
safety, so how can we build obstacle avoidance system ? Any one want to talk
about it ?
