MEAM Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “Flying Modular Robots: From Self-Assembling Structures in Midair to Embedding Grasping Capabilities”

November 16 at 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Flying modular robots offer a suitable autonomous platform for multiple applications such as: search and rescue, cargo lifting, and object transportation. In addition, modular robots in a swarm can use their own bodies as building units to assemble large structures. This thesis introduces ModQuad, the self-assembly structure that can cooperatively fly based on autonomous modules. […]
