Our reserach focuses on varity of technical fields related to marine/industrial robotics and renewable energy.
- >> Remotely operated vehicles smart systems- fault tolerant control, auto tuning, one-click auto survey, augmented reality visualisations (transparent ocean).
- >> Remote & auto flight control of tethered parafoil kites for airborne wind energy & aerial sensor/comms platforms.
- >> Sensored telemetry streaming from fixed wing aircraft, system identification, controller design.
- >> Emergency response exercise planning & coordination. UAVs deployed in segregated airspace over three day exercise. Key partners: Irish Aviation Authority, Irish Naval Service, Irish Coast Guard, Commissioner of Irish Lights.
- >> Long Range High Bandwidth commsremote presence, live interaction with distant robotic vehicles independent of existing infrastructure.
- >> Ocean sensing platforms with daughter mini ROVs- for persistent remote presence offshore with global satellite comms (controlled & monitored anywhere in world independent of existing infrastructure).
- >> Virtual and augmented reality.
- >> Airborne Wind Energy Systems Modelling, Control and Optimisation
- >> Battery and Electric Vehicles
