|Topic:||Fully Actuated UAVs and their Outdoor Applications|
|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 field is still in its infancy and many research topics are open, in particular outdoor flight with or without physical interactions are particularly promising and unexplored.
The domain to be explored comprise, but are not limited, to mechatronic design, planning techniques, sensor fusion, localization, control for physical interaction, estimation of external wrench, external wrench classification and swarming behavior.
Requirements: nonlinear control theory, estimation techniques, C/C++, Python, ROS, Matlab
