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
Current research topics include:
Bio-inspired construction with aerial robots.
Hybrid locomotion for robots to move in air, water, on ground and in
Aerial robots as tools to study the evolution of flight.
