Flyability Recruits College Graduates to Advance Underground Drone Technology

Recommended Posts

U.S. government agency DARPA wants to revolutionize how we operate in the underground world with drones. Underground settings, also called subterranean settings, are difficult and sometimes unsafe to work in. DARPA believes drones could help military and civilian first responders operate more efficiently in subterranean settings such as tunnels, urban underground, and cave networks. 

To help overcome some of the challenges associated with subterranean environments, DARPA has launched the Subterranean or “SubT” Challenge. The challenge seeks novel approaches to rapidly map, navigate, and search underground environments during time-sensitive combat operations or disaster response scenarios.

Flyability has joined forces with the Autonomous Robots Lab at the University of Nevada, the Robotic Systems Lab of ETH Zurich, the Autonomous System Lab of ETH Zurich, the HiPeR Lab of U.C. Berkeley, and Sierra Nevada Corporation to compete in the challenge. Together, they form Team CERBERUS. Team CERBERUS envisions the collaboration of walking and flying robots as the groundbreaking robotic solution for subterranean deployments. Take a look at Team CERBERUS’ concept developed for the SubT Challenge in the video below:

How do you think Team CERBERUS will perform during the SubT Challenge? Do you think they will excel in one circuit event category over the others or fair evenly in all three? 

Additionally, those interested in contributing to Team CERBERUS can pursue one of the many openings at Flyability. Flyability is now recruiting specific profiles opening the door to talented graduates to join the Flyability adventure and contribute to the success of Team CERBERUS. For a list of all internship and job openings at Flyability, visit Flyabiliy’s jobs page.
