Flocking flight demonstrated by Sensefly at IROS 11

Inexpensive and easy to use MAVs, developed by Severin Leven and Sensefly, are shown here to be able to flock in formations up to ten robots. The project, presented by Sabine Hauert from EPFL’s Laboratory of Intelligent Systems, will be shown at the IROS 2011 annual meeting.

The aircraft are made by SenseFly an EPFL spin-off

SenseFly was recently awarded the first prize for the “Most Innovative UAV Application and Demonstration“ sponsored by the Hexagon Technology Center/Leica Geosystems at UAV-g conference in Zurich, Switzerland. The demonstration involving two swinglet CAMs had been carried out with the collaboration of R-Pod to provide an intensive user perspective.
