More and more drones are flying over our heads but how do they work and what at they useful for? If only they could deliver beer...You may have to get your drink yourself but drones still have a lot to bring into our lives!

Robots in the Sky: Drones, Space Clean-up and Beyond

Professor Inna Sharf (Professor - Mechanical Engineering department at McGill University )
In this talk, Professor Sharf will outline her research on autonomous drones and systems for space debris removal. The former includes collision recovery for drones, coordinated transportation of a payload with multiple drones, and development of autonomous gliders for fire surveillance and monitoring. Her research on space debris removal involves using robotic manipulators and tethered-net systems to capture large space debris for subsequent deorbiting them to lower orbit.

How does a drone fly?

Dr. Aldo Vargas (Drone {Designer | Programmer | Pilot})
Recently, there is a growing interest in developing Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) with advanced on-board autonomous capabilities. Unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as drones, are encountered in an increasing number of applications, mostly military but increasingly in the civilian market making them very accessible to all sectors of society. This talk will address the most common question related to civilian drones: how do they fly? and what do they use to achieve that?
