My Bixler UAV project

 Hello everyone,

Today I am going to introduce my UAV Bixler project.

I bought this Bixler airplane from H.King about several months ago and wanted to put pixhawk in it to test how well it can fly autonomously.

After receiving the plane I searched the web to get any information about how to modify the plane. There are many DIY examples on such thing however most of them requires cutting the fuselage half or cutting the entire nose section. I think this…

The THOR prototype can transition from hover to fixed-wing cruise mode by rotating its wings into alignment

Conventional multicopter drones are excellent at hovering and VTOL, but they can't cover long distances as efficiently as fixed-wing aircraft. A team of students from the Singapore University of Technology and Design is trying to get the best of both worlds with the Transformable HOvering…

Robotized Radiation Mapping

Dear community members,

This is very preliminary work on aerial robotic radiation detection in real-time and in a GPS-denied manner. The robot localizes based on visual-inertial data and integrates a deferentially installed 2-radiation detectors solution to exploit their polarity characteristics. Most of the research is ahead but we…
