Guido De Croon, PhD
Department of Aerospace Engineering
Delft University of Technology
Received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) at Maastricht University, the Netherlands. His research interest lies with computationally efficient and often bio-inspired algorithms for robot autonomy, with an emphasis on computer vision. Since 2008 he has worked on algorithms for achieving autonomous flight with small and light-weight flying robots, such as the DelFly flapping wing MAV. In 2011-2012, he was a research fellow in the Advanced Concepts Team of the European Space Agency, where he studied topics such as optical flow based control algorithms for extraterrestrial landing scenarios. Currently, he is associate professor at TU Delft and scientific lead of the Micro Air Vehicle lab (MAV-lab) of Delft University of Technology.
Tom Richardson, PhD
Mechanics in the Department of Aerospace
Engineering at the University of Bristol
Dr. Richardson lectures Flight Mechanics and Control in the Aerospace Department at Bristol University. He obtained his first degree (MEng) from the Department at Bristol in 1998 and stayed on to undertake a PhD in Nonlinear Flight Mechanics. Awarded his PhD in 2002 he moved over to the Mechanical Engineering Department in Bristol as an RA. In June 2003 he moved back to the Aerospace Department when he was appointed to the Lectureship in Flight Mechanics.
