Don’t Fear the Dawn of the Drones; Someday One Might Save Your Life

“Drones have gotten a very bad rap for various reasons,” says Kelly Cohen, associate professor of aerospace engineering and engineering mechanics at UC. “But our students see that unmanned systems can have a positive impact on society.”

Cohen and a team of researchers have developed an experimental capability to capture the dynamic behavior of the UAV platform, which complements other work they’ve done with UAVs in disaster management operations. Wei Wei, one of Cohen’s students and the lead author of “Frequency-Domain System Identification and Simulation of a Quadrotor Controller,” will present the UAV dynamics research Jan. 16 at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics’ SciTech 2014 conference in National Harbor, Md. The event unites international aerospace scholars and professionals to collaborate on advances in research, development and technology.
