"Merci Charles! We're starting to have a lot of great research projects on drones, and robotics in general, at uSherbrooke. You can have a look at Createk Design Lab's website to see those: https://www.createk.co/"

"Thank you Marc! The airplane can definitely take on some wind before being dislodged from a perched position. However, we haven't characterized precisely the maximum levels of gust that it can support. It should be part of future work that…"

"That is just fantastic work. Well done. How easily would a serious gust of wind dislodge a perched UAV? In other words do you need a calm environment. Also, I imagine that this could be easily adapted to allow landing in tight spaces -- probably a…"

Drone Landing Autonomously on Walls

Hi everyone, here is a video of a new perching drone that we developped, called S-MAD (Sherbrooke's Multimodal Autonomous Drone).It's the first fixed-wing drone that autonomously perches and takes off from vertical surfaces, both indoors and outdoors. This kind of ability enables small UAVs to perform extended missions, offering new types of applications. Ultimately, such bird-inspired platforms could be used for long duration surveillance, energy harvesting, inspection of structures or…See More
