Student working on a research project.

Structural Health Monitoring Using UAVs

This project aims at developing a structural health monitoring system using unmanned air vehicles. The students will be required to develop a portable, low-power and compact sensor system that utilizes any or all of the following hardware to detect defects in civil, mechanical and manufacturing infrastructure:
1. Visible/IR cameras
2. Ultrasonic sensors
3. Magnetometers
4. X-Ray and other multispctral imaging systems.
The system will be integrated and flight tested. Size weight and power considerations to be portable on a UAV system need to be considered in the designs.
