Current Projects
Indoor Flight in Degraded Visual Environments
Our goal is to fly indoors in degraded visual environments to localize people and fire. We are developing accurate real-time localization and control to be able to fly in these challenging conditions.
Micro Air Vehicle Scouts for Intelligent Semantic Mapping
The goal of this project is develop the next level of capability for a low-flying, map building MAV scout. The research will demonstrate rapid scouting in cluttered environments and acquire relevant semantically annotated maps.
Riverine Mapping
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.
