This seminar aims at covering the most important topics required to understand most aspects of current research on Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) and should ideally enable motivated participants to engage in their own projects afterwards.

Participants are expected to independently familiarize themselves with a one of the proposed seminar topics and prepare both a 45 minutes (+ 15 minutes discussion) presentation and a short written report (15 to 20 pages). The written report is due two weeks after giving the presentation. We provide introductory reading for each topic that can serve as a starting point for further literature research.

Participants are required to attend every session to pass. The final grade depends on the quality of the presentation and the written report.
