PREVIOUS THESIS PROJECTS & STUDENTS

See below just some of the projects we've provided to undergraduate and masters students. We've been assisting students with their thesis projects for over six years. These students have been in-valuable in the development of new technology at ADR and their impact on industry has been immeasurable. 

ADR University Students with Explora XL

Underground Collision Avoidance UAV System - Raza Nawaz (Griffith University)

Raza designed and implemented a position control system onto an existing drone platform provided by ADR.

 

The final outcome of this project was a semi-autonomous drone that over-rode the operators controls in the event of a potential collision that was detected using Lidar and other sensors.  

Australian Droid + Robot Inspecta Underground UAV

Feasibility of a Triple Modular Redundant UAV Flight Controller - Daniel Esparon (University of Queensland)

Daniel designed and implemented a redundant flight control system which used three individual flight controllers and interfaced with external actuators and sensors.

Feasibility of a Redundant GPS System for UAV/UGV Platforms - Callum Macdermid (Macquarie University)

Callum designed and implemented a redundant GPS system that interfaced with three separate GPS units and blended them into a single GPS stream to a flight controller. 

The final outcome of this project was a GPS redundancy system that was capable of experiencing a GPS failure and increased the positional accuracy through the blending algorithms.
