A Creative Approach to the Control of Autonomous Flying Robots

Flying RobotThis project is in collaboration with the Institute of creative technologies (IOCT) to research in novel and creative ways to control highly unstable flying robots, and to create novel behaviours and collaborative task performance methodologies.


The research includes evolutionary computing and sonic signatures approaches. The picture shows the Mark 2 version, Flyper (FLYing PErforming Robot) .

Research Student: Ben Passow

Supervisors: Dr. Mario Gongora (CCI / IOCT), Dr. Sophy Smith (IOCT), Prof. Adrian Hopgood (CCI)
