Robotic rovers for harsh frozen environments

Robotic systems for deployment in frozen environments have many operational challenges. This can include:mobilitypower harvesting and storagethermal managementsamplingpath planningcommunications.We're currently developing robotic rovers for persistent (6-12 months) science missions in such frozen environments. A number of projects are available to address these challenges. We aim to test prototype systems that undertake autonomous scientific sampling tasks whilst having minimal impact on the environment and surviving these harsh conditions for long periods of time. …

Wide field-of-view vision-based aircraft detection

Small to medium-sized fixed-wing unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAV) have an incredible range of potential applications in civilian operations including:disaster assessmentsearch and rescueenvironmental and infrastructure monitoringremote sensing in agricultureproduct delivery.The national airspace is heavily regulated with strict rules and safety layers that aim to mitigate the risk of mid-air collisions. The final safety layer corresponds to human pilots using their eyes and judgment to avoid potential mid-air collision threats.Sense and avoid (SAA) refers to the implied regulatory requirement that UAVs be …
