Jake Dostal successfully designed and implemented an optical communication link that allows hybrid (RF/Optical) communications between a micro aerial vehicle and ground mobile robot. This research is supported in part by the Army Research Labs, MAST Program.
Corbin Wilhelmi presented his MS project Wednesday Feb. 24th. This project applied the idea of quantum mechanics to robotic movement. In a sense, he created a program where the robot senses its surroundings and moves around obstacles like water does around rocks in a stream. Corbin will now be heading off to Washington DC to work in Naval Research.
