Main Focus

I am at the Max-Planck-Institut for Biological Cybernetics.

I am currently working with the under the supervision of , , .

My research deals with the problem of aerial grasping for a quadrotor.

Aerial Grasping on a quadrotor helicopter

This project deals with the problem of planning trajectories and developing controllers for a quadcopter during the grasping of a target object.

Both kinematic and dynamic constraints must be satisfied in order to accomplish the task in a feasible and safe way. Care must also be taken to avoid collisions with the ground and possibly with any other obstacle populating the environment.

Possible applications of the study are in search and rescue operations, goods transportation, research.
