Aerial Robotics Lab

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.
