UAVs especially micro air vehicles (fixed wing, rotary wing and flapping wing) are an emerging area and the research team at FET is working on various aspects of them. Some areas of research include Structural design, High efficiency propeller design, Obstacle avoidance, Visual SLAM and Autonomous navigation in GPS denied environment and Cooperative flying.

Low Cost EMG driven Bionic Hands
A Low cost bionic hand has been developed by the members of Centre for Biomedical Excellence at FET, UAS. The developed prototype perform actions based on the EMG signal captured from a below elbow amputee. Optimised pattern recognition algorithms help the prototype to classify the different actions captured in the EMG signals. The research was sponsored by DRDO-LSRB (Life Science Research Board) The team that includes both staff and students are also working towards classifying the finger movements. A prototype which performs desired actions using audio instructions, tactile and keypad controls is also being developed.
