Hi Michael,During our Melbourne meetup and fly today, in which we did several autonomous flights with several quads, we found that there is potential for unusual/unexpected/unwanted behaviour at the…Continue
I'm presently a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Deakin University in Australia. I'm married, with two lovely daughters (5 & 11). In my spare time (which isn't much), I enjoy computer games, building robots, programming, golf, sports and astronomy. I've been flying R/C (gliders and powered aero) for nearly 20 years and have recently defected to flying helis, playing with my Blade 450 and T-Rex 600. If I ever find quiet time I love to read, particularly anything by Terry Pratchett!
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I worked on the Aerosonde UAV development team and undertook my PhD research developing intelligent navigation software for autonomous cyclone/hurricane reconnaissance using UAVs. I eventually abandoned this PhD (for many reasons) and completed a PhD in mathematics and computer vision. My research is now in the areas of computer vision and UAVs (and in particular, coupling the two and looking at the role of vision in biological and engineered flight systems).
