Paley:

Paley: "We work with differential equations and model the movement of the aircraft in the wind; then we design steering control algorithms using those models which could be subsequently be implemented on the aircraft."

 

A new National Science Foundation video features ISR-affiliated Assistant Professor Derek Paley's (AE) unmanned aerial vehicle research to help predict the strength of hurricanes.

Paley's Collective Dynamics and Control Laboratory focuses on collective behavior, specifically on how groups of unmanned vehicles can work together to solve problems.

"Our work focuses on how we might use unmanned aircraft to collect observations or measurements of temperature, moisture and wind inside a hurricane to improve the forcasts of a hurricane's strength and give people more time to evacuate if necessary," Paley says.
