FireSwarm

In this project, research is performed on a swarm of MAVs that will be able to search in a large area in order to detect and monitor forest fires. The MAVs make use of distributed control, so that they do not rely on a central ground station for executing their task as efficiently and effectively […]

Evolutionary Robotics

Evolutionary Robotics for Micro Air Vehicles

Small robots with limited computational and sensory capabilities are becoming more commonplace. Designing effective behaviour for small robotic platforms to complete complex tasks is a major challenge. A promising methodology to address this problem is found in Evolutionary Robotics (ER), in which a robot’s controller, and possibly its body, is optimised using Evolutionary Learning (EL) […]
