In Spring 2015, I started working in the Advanced Controls Research Laboratory, under Professor Naira Hovakimyan. Here, I have worked on projects involving Control Theory and its Application
Particle Image Velocimetry
In Summer 2015, I worked with Gianluca Blois and Venanzio Cicella to explore the use of quadcopters in recording data for Particle Image Velocimetry. This was especially fun as it involved flying a huge quadcopter over a flowing river. The project concluded in a paper submitted to River Flow 2016.
In Summer 2015, I worked with the Illinois Fire Service Institute and performed test flights to use drones in standard operating procedure. This involved the use of IR Cameras and OpenCV to identify key areas of danger. Unfortunately, due to ambiguity in FAA rules at the time, we were barred from further outdoor flights.
