Flying robots, such as multi-copters, are increasingly becoming part of our everyday lives, with current and future applications including personal transportation, delivery services, entertainment, and aerial sensing. These systems are expected to be safe and to have a high degree of autonomy. This talk will discuss the dynamics and control of multi-copters, with a focus on making these vehicles more robust to external disturbances, and component failures. We will discuss specific research results relating to increasing efficiency of the systems and overcoming range limitations, as well as design decisions that allow for greater robustness and safety in the face of component failures.
