At the High Performance Robotics Lab, we focus on low-level research on fundamental robotics capabilities, especially for for Unmanned Aerial Systems. Areas of particular focus are safety, localization, and design. We aim to enhance the systems’ capabilities by advanced algorithms, mechanical design, and control strategies.
We have a strong focus on experimental validation of ideas, and therefore we expend substantial energy in ensuring that algorithms etc. can be implemented on a real system, and run in real time.
Some specific research areas of interest are linked below:
- Vehicle design
- Firefighting and challenging environments
- Trajectories and efficiency
- State estimation
