    SPARKED: A Live Interaction Between Humans and Quadcopters

    Published on Sep 22, 2014

    Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios have partnered to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters in a flying dance performance. The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync. Precise computer control allows for a large performance and movement vocabulary of the quadcopters and opens the door to many more applications in the future.

    Flight Plan: Charting a Course for Drones in Washington

    Published on Oct 1, 2014

    This one-hour television special from TVW looks at the growing popularity of civilian drones, and the privacy questions they raise. TVW introduces you to hobbyists who are flying drones for fun, as well as professionals who want to use them for things like selling real estate or growing grapes. We also take you inside Washington's booming drone industry, where unmanned aerial systems are built primarily for military customers. And finally, we show you how police and Washington state agencies could use the technology -- and hear from those who say government drones threaten your civil rights.

    Sergei Lupashin: A flying camera ... on a leash

    Published on Oct 28, 2014

    Let's admit it: aerial photo drones and UAVs are a little creepy, and they come with big regulatory and safety problems. But aerial photos can be a powerful way of telling the truth about the world: the size of a protest, the spread of an oil spill, the wildlife hidden in a delta. Sergei Lupashin demos Fotokite, a nifty new way to see the world from on high, safely and under control.

    Ella Atkins | Drone Policy or Not?

    Published on Nov 20, 2014

    Professor Ella Atkins, Aerospace Engineering, will be giving a seminar to the Aerospace Department about FAA regulations and UAV’s.
    Professor Atkins' research program focuses on the integration of strategic and tactical planning and optimization algorithms to enable robust, autonomous aircraft and spacecraft flight in the presence of system failures and environmental uncertainties. Onboard automation must enhance performance while maintaining safe long-term operation robust to unexpected or failure scenarios. Mission and trajectory planners must yield acceptable low-cost solutions for single vehicles or coordinated teams operating nominally or, worst-case, in unfriendly, uncertain environments with degraded performance characteristics. Researchers have begun to speak of humans "on the loop" rather than "in the loop". Under this paradigm, humans are the mission managers and theatre commanders supported by an array of computational tools. These tools must acquire and accurately summarize mission-critical information for human supervisors while providing the underlying infrastructure that plans and executes missions in accordance with specified high-level directives. Hardware-based demonstration of single-vehicle and collaborative systems is a key component of Dr. Atkins' research. Current platforms include the Solus UAV and a planetary surface rover

    Why Use 3D-Printed Drones?

    Published on Nov 26, 2014

    A crash for a typical model aircraft can mean disaster in the form of dollar signs and hours of labor. Enter 3-D printing, which allows for quick modification and the rapid creation of replacement parts. The University of Virginia and Mitre Corporation have teamed up to create a fully autonomous, hand-launchable drone made using a 3-D printer and off-the-shelf parts.
