Truck, drone collaboration could optimize package delivery

Truck, drone collaboration could optimize package delivery

A top-view of a truck carrying six drones on its roof for last-mile delivery tasks. The figure was included in Sharan Srinivas' paper in Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies. A Mizzou Engineer has developed a way trucks and drones could collaborate to most efficiently deliver packages. What makes Sharan Srinivas’ research unique is that [...]

Building Smarter AI

Associate Professor Derek Anderson is working to improve the way artificial intelligence responds to environments. Artificial intelligence is smart, but it’s also too trusting. Currently, AI blindly trusts sensor data and decisions derived from that data. Now, Derek Anderson, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science, is trying to figure out how to [...]

Team Devising Way to Analyze Images from Drone Footage

This photo illustration shows how a drone captures aerial video of a farm. A Mizzou research team is devising a way to pull high-resolution images from that video footage automatically. Imagine being able to assess the health of a single plant in the middle of a field by automatically analyzing a photo of it. The [...]
IT Program Tackles Drone Technologies

IT Program Tackles Drone Technologies

When you want a cloud-computing service at work, you call IT. But who do you contact to integrate a company drone into daily operations? That may not be an everyday problem now, but unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) are quickly becoming a reality for many businesses. And that’s where the Information Technology Program at Mizzou Engineering [...]
Aerial Reconnaissance

Aerial Reconnaissance

Currently, when the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) wants to keep track of the waterfowl population in the state or monitor wetlands for invasive plant species, they send a natural resource manager into the field to do a manual count, which is very labor intensive and not very accurate. Other methods to monitor bird populations […]
