Title: Making Hovering Robots Useful

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) hold tremendous promise in a broad variety of applications. However, they seem forever on the cusp of true utility: always too expensive, too limited in endurance, or too dangerous to cross the threshold into utility. The Robotics Design Lab Aerial Robotics Group aims to address these problems by finding novel design and construction approaches to reduce costs, increase performance and improve safety of miniature robotic aircraft.

Speaker bio:
Dr. Paul Pounds is a senior lecturer in mechatronics at the University of Queensland. He completed his PhD in robotics at ANU in 2008, and his post-doctoral studies at Yale in 2011. He co-founded the UQ Robotics Design Lab in 2012. He is a 2013 ARC DECRA fellow, and 2015 Queensland Science Tall Poppy winner.
