Aerial robotics is one of the fastest growing areas of research and development in engineering. Flying robots can be effective in many areas of work where elevation and rapid response are required. These include search and rescue operations, inspection and in-situ repair with flying robots, assisted agriculture, environmental monitoring and exploration of hazardous environments.
Dr Mirko Kovac is Head of the Aerial Robotics Lab at Imperial College London. His research focuses on the design, fabrication and testing of next generation flying robots, employing biological inspiration as a key design methodology to achieve high performance systems.
When & Where
The Engineering Club
TheEngineeringClub was founded over twenty years ago to host events about the broad culture of engineering in an informal setting.
Activities include a series of talks on all facets of engineering. The talks are free to attend, with refreshments and a lively and informed discussion afterwards.
The Engineering Club is made possible by the support of the following companies:
AKTII, Arup, Atelier Ten, BuroHappold Engineering, ChapmanBDSP, Civic Engineers, Connisbee, COWI UK, Davies Maguire+, Eckersley O’Callaghan, Elliott Wood, EngineersHRW, Entuitive, Evolve, Expedition, Form Structural Design, Heyne Tillett Steel, Knight Architects, Lyons O’Neill, Malishev Engineers, Max Fordham, Michael Barclay Partnership, Michael Hadi Associates, Milk, Momentum, Morph Structures, Newtecnic, OR Consulting Engineers, Price & Myers, Ramboll, Robert Bird Group, Sinclair Johnston, Structure Workshop, Structured Environment, Skelly & Couch, StructureMode, Techniker, Webb Yates Engineers, WME
