LISA-S: “the world’s smallest open source autopilot”

he Micro Aerial Vehicle Laboratory at the TU Delft faculty of Aerospace Engineering has designed, built and tested the world’s smallest open source autopilot for small unmanned aircraft. A smaller – and lighter – autopilot allows these small flying robots to fly longer, fit into narrower spaces or carry more payloads, such as cameras. That […]

Swarm of Hybrid UAVs for the Acquisition of Distributed Measurements

A Swarm of Hybrid UAV can perform measurements in a large area. To cover this area, the drones need quite some range. However, to perform their measurements, they should be able to land anywhere. That is why the choice is made for hybrid UAVs. A hybrid UAV can take off an land vertically (VTOL) like […]

DelFly

In the DelFly project, we design and study autonomous flapping wing MAVs. Our approach is to always work with flying platforms that can carry payload such as a camera. On the one hand, we work toward ever more autonomous flapping wing MAVs that can be used for actual applications, ranging from search-and-rescue to entertainment. On […]
