easyLab and Nevada NanoTech receive U.S. ARMY funding to develop flying robotic sensor

With a new contract from the U.S. Army, the University of Nevada, Reno easyLab is partnering with NevadaNano to develop a robotic flying vehicle that can be used for environmental health and safety monitoring of large areas.

The project combines the autonomous systems expertise of Dr. Leang with the unique sensor technology NevadaNano has developed for chemical sensing.  The goal of the proposed program is the development of a flying robot with integrated chemical sensing, inter-unit communication and the potential for self-powering. It will be able to “swarm” with other similar units to monitor, collect and analyze samples while in flight and relay data immediately.
