Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) navigation is more complex in GPS denied scenarios. In this project, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) approach for the UAS localization to aid autonomous navigation will be implemented.
Many birds travel in flocks comprising many individuals. During flights, decisions have to be made about who leads and follows, who is positioned where in the flock, and who you want to be flying beside.
How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’).
