Research Projects

RUASRT are undertaking a large program to enable safe and effective UAS operation in complex and cluttered environments. The urban canyon represent such challenging environment and represents the research focus at RUASRT. There are a number of focal research areas including; resilient autonomy,
bioinspiration, intelligent guidance navigation and control, acoustics, and swarming/formation flight. 

Resilient Autonomy / Turbulence Mitigation Strategies

  • Gust Mitigation strategies
  • Gust Vehicle interaction
  • Gust / Turbulence Modelling and replication
  • Novel Actuation strategies
