Show and tell

I've been doing lots of demonstrations and presentations lately - here's a collection.

First was a very interesting workshop at the ASAP group in Nottingham, supported by the LANCS initiative, talking about applications of operations research to air transport problems.  Agenda and talks are available for download here, including my report of our work on aircraft taxi optimization and air traffic flow management.

Next was a more high level event at Southampton, the Autonomous and Advanced Systems Showcase event.   This covered various opportunities and initiatives at the intersection of aerospace and autonomous systems, ranging from market opportunities to the latest research details.  Extensive video reporting can be found here, including my report on the work of Bristol Robotics Lab in this area.

The Duke of York visited BRL on Feb 10th and was treated to, among other things, a display of our autonomous flying robots in a building exploration scenario.  The photos are here.

And finally, I was asked to comment on the recent Amazon UAV delivery proposals by a packaging trade magazine.  The article is here.
