MultiAgent Lab & Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

Multi Agent Lab

Bonita Vicon Tracking Space

A tracking hall of size 7.55m x 6.18m x 3.5m and equipped with tracking capabilities (6 VICON®  Bonita cameras, software Vicon® Tracker) is used as a main testing space for our multi-robot research. The room hosts also several PCs and the whole communication infrastructure to allow decentralized multi-robot algorithms to be implemented and tested, with the possibility of obtaining ground-truth data from the external VICON® system.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

Multi-robot research is conducted by the group by exploiting UAVs (quadrotors) as experimental testbeds for implementing and evaluating advanced complex strategies for multi-robot estimation and control, with a particular focus on decentralized solutions. The quadrotors used by the group are based on a commercial product from the german company MikroKopter (Germany), and have been then modified both in their hardware and control software to suit our particular needs. Absolute position/orientation measurements are obtained form an external tracking system (VICON® ), although several quantities are also estimated onboard exploiting accelerometers, gyroscopes and onboard cameras.
