Welcome to the research of the Aerial Robotics Laboratory
The research of the Aerial Robotics Laboratory focuses on the design, fabrication and testing of next generation flying robots and it employs biological inspiration as a key design methodology to achieve high performance systems.
The applications that we focus on include search and rescue operations, inspection and in-situ repair with flying robots, assisted agriculture, environmental monitoring and exploration of hazardous environments.
Current research topics include:
Bio-inspired construction with aerial robots.
Hybrid locomotion for robots to move in air, water, on ground and in forest environments.
Aerial robots as tools to study the evolution of flight.
