The Guidance and Navigation Aerosystems Lab
Co-Directors: Demoz Gebre-Egziabher, and Peter J. Seiler
Location: 309 Akerman Hall
The Aerosystems Laboratory focuses on guidance, navigation, and control algorithms, with applications to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), CubeSats, and wind turbines.
Professor Gebre-Egziabher's groups work on state estimation and sensor fusion techniques for solving problems related to navigation and attitude determination. Particular areas of focus are GNSS-based and GNSS-denied navigation. More information here.
Professor Seiler's group works on advanced control techniques for wind turbines, fault-detection methods for safety-critical systems and robust control of disk drives. Details on these projects can be found on his lab webpage: http://www.aem.umn.edu/~SeilerControl/.
Both groups have several projects on UAVs. More information on these projects can be found at:
