|Topic:||Sensor Fusion for Fully Actuated Outdoor UAVs|
|Supervisor:||Nicolas Staub Ph.D.|
|Description:||In the past couple of years the community interest for fully actuated aerial vehicle grew steadily, fostered by projects focused on aerial physical interactions.
Nowadays only a handful of labs have working prototypes, mostly indoor.
The goal of this work is to participate to the development a fully actuated prototype able to flight outdoor. In particular, a focus will be given to the estimation of external wrench e.g. to retrieve wind estimate.
The development tasks of the prototype will be mostly software oriented (from driver to high-level controller) but can contain mechatronic activities.
The work will involve both simulation and outdoor experiments to validate the proposed solutions.
Fields of Interest: control theory and estimation techniques, filtering techniques, C/C++, Python, ROS, hands on experience preferred
