The Distributed Aerospace Systems and Control Laboratory (B203 FXB Building, Department of Aerospace Engineering) is a 7m x 7m x 9.5 m lab space directed by Dimitra Panagou.
The lab is equipped with a state-of-the-art fleet of small UAVs, namely six Hummingbirds and one Firefly from Ascending Technologies, two Solos from 3D Robotics, and a motion capture system (14 VICON cameras) for high precision object tracking. The motion capture system is effective in a volume of 7m x 7m x 5.5m and provides low-latency (2.5 msec) and high accuracy measurements of the vehicles position and attitude. The UAVs are equipped with onboard cameras for stereo vision, IMUs, GPS receivers, wireless communication links. Additionally, a drone LiDAR from Velodyne (Puck 16 Lite) and a range sensor from Leddartech are available in the lab.
Aerial vehicles and sensors available at DASC Lab.
