Dr Donald Dansereau’s work in developing the world’s first single lens wide field-of-view (FOV) light field capture camera may have huge implications for drone landing, delivery robots and self-driving cars.
Innovative aeronautical research aims to predict safe conditions around ships, oil rigs and within urban environments to allow helicopters to land in gale force winds and high seas.
PhD student Anastasia Volkova is developing an alternative way for drones to see in areas they are unable to navigate by GPS satellite. She hopes visual navigation algorithms will change the way drones operate.
Combining their passions for science and engineering, three University of Sydney Alumni are using marine robotic technology to help industry reach some of their most challenging and inaccessible underwater locations.
