FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) –┬áStudents at U.C. Merced are working on technology that could have a major impact on agriculture and other industries in the near future.


Flying these robots is serious business for U.C. Merced students, but they admit it’s also a lot of fun.

Brendan smith, a U.C. Merced student, said, “it’s something I look forward to coming to every single day, and it’s not even like I have to be here, it’s because I want to be here and I choose to be here.”

18 undergraduate researchers are now working with unmanned aerial vehicles in their lab — which just opened in August at the university’s building near castle airport.
