Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Campus San Luis Potosí develops an autonomous Quadcopter

Jul 8, 2013.

Dr. Fidencio Tapoia, Professor Rodolfo Quirós and a group of students are heading a project at the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey Campus San Luis Potosí UAV Lab that takes the concept of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to new heights.

They have developed an autonomous quadcopter that can navigate through extremely small spaces, work with other quadcopters, and lift heavy objects.

The identified challenges ahead this team includes to complete coding to achieve full control of the Quadcopter with a smartphone or tablet rather than an RC control and improve the UAV design to apply for the 7th IARC (International Aerial Robotics Competition) for 2014.
