Research

Innovation comes from constant research.

Our team spends their spare time continuously developing new ideas, concepts, and research concepts. Here are some of our highlights members of our team worked on.


Senior Design

Currently our team is embedded at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering Senior Design CAPSTONE for both Mechanical Engineers and Electrical Engineers. To see the progress we are making on that front, feel free to check out our blog.


Internal Research

Internal research is conducted by our team to advance the future of autonomous platforms. Most of this research is ongoing.

Project ASIMOV

Project Asimov concerns the development of systems which violate Asmiov's first rule of robotics as a viable solution for defending UAVs in high stress environments.  Project Asmiov is kept internally until we can release further information.

Project CENTUAR

Project Centaur concerns the level of autonomy in UAS platforms in comparison to human capability. Project Centaur is kept internally until we can release further information.

Project VISITR

Project VISITR stands for Visual Intelligence System w, Infrared and Thermal Recognition. It's our internal system for optical recognition and targeting which will be standard inside of our UAS platforms.

Project ACOUSTIC

Project Acoustic concerns the autonomous navigation in low light interior terrain using artificial intelligence. Project Acoustic is kept internally until we can release further information.

Project Korone

Unmanned Ground Support Vehicle platform for quadruped research. Being moved to the Project Page.


Supported Research

Supported research comes from either our staff in university or from other organizations we support.

The Reachable Set of a Drone: Exploring the Position Isochrones for a Quadcopter - ICRA21

Swarm Robotics Laboratory at the University of Houston

The Reachable set calculates the maximum moveable position of any drone given the drone's parameters in a given time, useable in pattern mapping opposing force UAVs, calculating safe distances for operating in swarms, as well as for future calculations in drone operations.

Currently unreleased Swarm Robotics Laboratory project

Swarm Robotics Laboratory at the University of Houston

This project is a joint research project with the Swarm Robotics Lab, Limited Technologies, and the College of Computer Science in Natural Science and Mathematics. More information will be released in future.
