Honors & Awards

Start-up Grant: I've been winner of Working Capital 2012 with the project FLYAQ: an open source platform to support mission planning of autonomous quadrotors. The platform allows to easily program these kinds of UAV through a graphical and high-level language. In this way a swarm of quadrotors might support humans during environmental missions.
