About the Project
U-Flyte now wishes to recruit PhD candidates to join this aerial robotics team based within the National Centre for Geocomputation (NCG), an established research centre at Maynooth University. We would especially like to hear from candidates with good primary degrees in Computing or Mathematics interested in developing careers in Aerial Robotics, Machine Learning, Computer Vision & Geospatial Data Analytics. If you feel you have the right background and want to know more – please get in touch.
At the heart of this PhD will be the principle that drones can only fly safely,
undertaking BVLOS operations, if all relevant aspects affecting flight safety are known. One key part of this is emerging optical, radar and RF-Sensor technology for detecting, locating and tracking both fixed and dynamic obstacles at low altitudes. This PhD will focus on how these new emerging technologies can be fused and analysed using the latest Machine Learning techniques to allow drones to fly autonomously over cities, towns and farms, along critical infrastructures and coastlines.
Please contact Dr. Lucy Cradden, U-Flyte Project Manager at [Email Address Removed] to discuss further.
Scholars will have a dedicated work-space/I.T. within the NCG’s postgraduate area and join an experienced team operating in an innovative, dynamic environment.
