MOST-AERO HorseFly Project in Wired Magazine

June 16th, 2014  / Author: Nick Ernest

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.

June 16th, 2014  / Author: Nick Ernest

MOST-AERO Director Dr. Kelly Cohen along with Ms. Amy Jameson of Dater High School as the co-PI were recently awarded an Ohio Space Grant Consortium (OSGC) Mini-Grant to host a Flight Camp.  The camp was organized by MOST-AERO’s Bryan Brown for students of Shroder High School, Dater Middle and High Schools, and Western Hills High School along with their advisors Audra Fields (Western Hills), Amy Jameson (Dater), and Lillian Sims (Shroder).

Prior to attending the Flight Camp event at UC, students in the program were challenged to build their own model airplanes and develop presentations about their design process.   Upon their arrival at UC on Wednesday, students were given the opportunity to showcase and fly the planes that they worked diligently throughout the year to build.

The Flight Camp took place on June 4, 2014 and was a major success.
