Research and Development

Autonomous Vehicles

Micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are ideal platforms for indoor operations. We are developing software and hardware that will enable quadropters to operate autonomously and reliably in closed, GPS denied spaces.

 

 

 

 

Computer Vision 

Advances in computer vision promise intelligent sensing systems that can augment functionality of robots to operate autonomusly. Our computer vision projects focus on using inexpensive, off the shelf technologies to build novel control and sensing systems for mobile robots.

 

 

 

 

 

Technology Policy

World governments will play a central role in advancing robotics. We reach out to government and industry experts on technology policy to understand how goverment decsions will shape the future of robotics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Academic Research

YUR members are directly involved in developing flight control systems for the Yale Aerial Manipulator, the first ever platform to demonstrate unstructured object grasping while maintaining stable flight.
