octorotorWe received word earlier in the fall that our infrastructure inspection proposal was awarded by the NSF.  Despite some delays due to the government shutdown, the project kicked off in late fall, and NSFCMU, CMU’s CITCMU’s CEE department, and Northeastern’s CEE department issued press releases.  The project was also mentioned in the Robotics Business Review.

The project officially kicked off this month, and one of our first accomplishments was to christen the project “The ARIA Project.”  ARIA stands for Aerial Robotic Infrastructure Analyst.
