MOST-AERO’s Sophia Mitchell has been given the award of College of Engineering and Applied Sciences Engineer of the Month. Sophia is in her fifth year of the ACCEND (dual BA and MS degrees) program and has spent four of her co-op rotations at the NASA Jet Propulsion (JPL) Laboratory.
An article on the UC site by Liz Daubenmire highlights Sophia’s excellent career at Cincinnati. Congratulations Sophia!
Partnering with AMP Electric Vehicles, MOST-AERO researchers are developing a UAV that works alongside an electric delivery truck in order to minimize costs. Rather than a UAV traveling straight from warehouse to delivery site, this duo will be able to more efficiently deliver a large amount of packages.
The UAV can recharge wirelessly using the truck’s battery, and safety redundancies are in place such as the octorotor design. Other ease-of-use features are planned, such as the ability for the HorseFly to scan a package’s barcode and then autonomously navigate to the destination.
