Product Portfolio
  • Welcome!

  • 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.
      • Research

          • The AquaMAV Project
             

          • The development of a multimodal Aquatic Micro Air Vehicle (AquaMAV).
          • Aerial Construction
             

          • Versatile construction methods and mechanisms for flying robots.
          • Microrocket Thrusters
             

          • High power density propulsion systems for micro scale flying machines.
          • Robots for Tropical Forests
