A summary of our solutions, our problems, and what we see moving forward.
We look back at a year of development.
Ascend NTNU was founded with the primary mission of participating in (and winning) the International Aerial Robotics Competition (IARC) in 2016 and onwards.
Asking the questions that really matter, and then not answering them.
This week I continue down the rabbit hole in the search for ground robots.
Guiding the search for ground robots turns out to be more difficult than anticipated.
Ascend NTNU søker nå etter 2 engasjerte studenter til å ta på seg rollene som markedsansvarlig og økonomiansvarlig.
Wednesday this week we will have a stand at Elektrobygget at NTNU and hold a presentation about the project at Kjelhuset, in relation to Your Extreme. Come by and say hi.
We are very pleased to announce that Kongsberg is now the main sponsor of our team.
An accurate probabilistic model of the ground robots is a step towards bulletproofing a robust state estimator.
Since we first published this web site, a lot of stuff has happened. This post tries to cover the gap from our first post in July up until now.
Ascend is a new aerial robotics team from NTNU, established to represent NTNU in the annual International Aerial Robotics Competition (IARC). After using the spring to gather a team, we are now very exited to start on our first IARC-mission.

The control group takes care of all the physical aspects of the drone. Bridging the gap between commands and actions.
State estimation of the drone and beyond. The perception group converts sensor input to meaningful information about the drone and its environment.
Finding the optimal behaviour to solve the mission at hand. The Planning group takes the latest AI research from theory to practice.
The hardware group is responsible for the design of the drone. Material choice, strength calculations, electrical, aerodynamics, propulsion and production.
3D Robotics are the makers of Pixhawk - the worlds leading autopilot system for UAVs. Our drones are powered by their hardware.
