MAAV strives to be the premiere autonomous aerial vehicle organization at the University of Michigan. It offers students a unique way to expand their knowledge outside the classroom. By competing in the International Aerial Robotics Competition, MAAV has found a venue in which to challenge its members to push the limits of their abilities and demonstrate their success on a global stage. MAAV members engage in designing, manufacturing, programming, and testing every aspect of a small, autonomous drone. Members will gain experience and apply skills in areas such as structural design and manufacturing, embedded programming, control theory, navigation and mapping, and computer vision.
