    In the last five years, advances in materials, electronics, sensors, and batteries have fueled a growth in the development of microunmanned aerial vehicles (MAVs) that are between 0.1 and 0.5 m in length and 0.1-0.5 kg in mass [1]. A few groups have built and analyzed MAVs in the 10-cm range [2], [3]. One of the smallest MAV is the Picoftyer with a 60-mmpropellor diameter and a mass of 3.3 g [4]. ... View full abstract»

    Each fall, a group of intrepid students converge in a classroom on the third floor of the University of Pennsylvania's Towne Engineering Building for what they know will be one of the most challenging courses in their academic career. That first class begins with a discussion of where it will end. In particular, we talk about what they will accomplish in the final project, where they will design, ... View full abstract»
