Our main team has begun working since 2004 and MAV team members gathered from 2012 to build and develop quadrotors. Our laboratory is located in the Electrical faculty of K.N. Toosi University of Technology, under the branch of ARAS robotic lab.
The primary purpose was to get the knowledge of building a quadrotor for implementing high-tech control algorithms and artificial intelligence onboard and offboard. We aim to have a fully autonomous MAV for video capturing, mapping, load lifting and performing rescue operations.



Our aim is to make the robot operate fully autonomous, avoid obstacles and decide on it’s own using artificial intelligence.


Provides stable flight in turbulent environments and disturbances like tunnels, wind, lifting unbalanced loads.


Using on-board cameras, embedded systems and different algorithms we get the structure of the environment, hold the position of the robot or navigate through the environment.


The ability to detect face, marker, writings, objects with specific color and following them.
