|Helicopter Obstacle Avoidance and Landing
In this project we develop the trajectory planning system for an autonomous helicopter. The helicopter is used for cargo delivery. To read more about the trajectory planning system see the following publications.
This project is developing technology to map riverine environments from a low-flying rotorcraft. Challenges include dealing with varying appearance of the river and surrounding canopy, intermittent GPS and a highly constrained payload. We are developing self-supervised algorithms that can segment images from onboard cameras to determine the course of the river ahead, and we are developing devices and methods capable of mapping the shoreline.
