PRG's work Gapflyt highlighted in IEEE Spectrum media

The Perception and Robotics Group Lab’s (PRG) work on drones able to pass through small gaps in walls—thanks to vision inspired by insects—was featured as a project on IEEE Spectrum media on September 11th 2018. Gapflyt is led by Professor Yiannis Aloinmonos and Dr. Cornelia Fermüller along with their graduate students Nitin J. Sanket, Chahat Deep Singh, and Kanishka Ganguly.  Soon after being highlighted on IEEE, the group’s work has become the subject of over twenty-five web publications from around the world.
