Construction with Quadrotors

Robots already build cars, sort mail and clean homes, but when you add four helicopter rotors to one, things start getting really interesting.

Using unmanned aerial vehicles called quadrotors, a team of Penn Engineering graduate students has built an autonomous airborne construction crew able to build small towers.

The two mechanical engineering students, Quentin Lindsey and Daniel Mellinger, working with the School of Engineering and Applied Science's Deputy Dean for Education Vijay Kumar, are taking the web by storm with a video of the quadrotors in action.
