Small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have garnered much attention in recent years because of their potential in a variety of civilian applications, such as aerial vieography, surveying, remote sensing, and wireless connectivity and location. Much of this excitement stems from technology advancement in areas such as low-cost computation platforms, small form factor sensors (inertial, GPS, lidar, etc), and miniaturized timing units.

We have assembled a team of undergraduate and graduate students to investigate various aspects of small UAV technologies. Of particular interest to us are the following topics:

UC Davis is part of the Federal Aviation Association’s (FAA) Center of Excellence for UAV Research (ASSURE).

Contact Dr. Liu (lxgliu@ucdavis.edu) if you are interested in joining the team.
