Rotorcraft navigation using inspiration from honeybees
This Biorobotics project will involve embodying knowledge about vision and navigation in honeybees (biological compasses, visual odometry and patch integration) into a multirotor aircraft to enable it to locate virtual food sources, and navigate to them repeatedly and reliably.

Rotorcraft landing using biologically inspired visual guidance
This Biorobotics project will involve using the principles of optic flow analysis that the laboratory has gleaned from studying honeybee landings to develop and test algorithms that will enable rotorcraft to use vision to land autonomously in unstructured terrain.
