Professor of Institute for Aerospace Studies and the Director of Centre for Aerial Robotics Research and Education,
University of Toronto
Research Interest: Autonomous unmanned aerial system (UAS) surveillance for traffic data analysis, target detection and tracking, as well as networked UAS and integration with transportation data centre.
Title: Coordinated control for Autonomous Drone Sampling Applications
Abstract: In this talk, we will present recent research and development projects involving multi-unmanned aerial systems for several autonomous missions. The focus is placed on the aerodynamic impact and the corresponding control solutions. Based on our investigation, the major conclusion is drawn to demonstrate the promising feature of integrated flight dynamics and control.
