Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) are small, lightweight flying robotic systems that make ideal research platforms in a number of fields. MAVs development requires expertise in electronics, mechanics, aerodynamics, navigation and control, and many more. Thanks to the scientific progress and availability of open-source control systems, research can now also focus on cognitive aspects of MAVs.

The deadline for abstracts has been extended to May 20, 2009. The organizers particularly encourage papers that go beyond MAV hardware, and address issues such as the collaboration of multiple MAVs, applications of computer vision, and non-GPS based navigation.

The event is sponsored by ASTI Institute (TU Delft) and the D-cis Lab of Thales Research.
