At building collapse sites, aerial drones and ground robots can extend the eyes and ears of search and rescue personnel to places people can’t go – above and inside the rubble pile.
New research uncovers the impact of weather on the safe operation of common commercial drones.
Glacial lakes around the world are expected to flood downstream areas more often as climate change makes them less stable.
Bees mate in mid-air, where it’s almost impossible to observe them.
When policymakers reduce electricity scarcity to a few factors like theft and vandalism, to be solved with technology and stiff penalties, they miss other factors that contribute to electricity theft.
We used drones to track the way terns forage around offshore energy structures.

From his positions at the United Nations, Professor Heyns made a huge impact on the protection of the right to life and the right of peaceful assembly.
We’ve devised a way to factor in noise annoyance levels in drone design.
As African economies recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, governments should explore technologies like global positioning systems and blockchain for use in the registration of land rights.
High-power microwave weapons are useful for disabling electronics. They might also be behind the ailments suffered by US diplomats and CIA agents in Cuba and China.
New research suggests individual bees are born with one of two learning styles – either curious or focused. Their genetic tendency has implications for how the hive works together.
They began as wartime technology, but now drones are changing the way we witness the world, especially when we can’t see it for ourselves.
Avoiding drones’ prying eyes can be as complicated as donning a high-tech hoodie and as simple as ducking under a tree.
The COVID-19 crisis highlights the importance of supply chains. But even with the increased recent attention, most supply chains remain murky. Consumers can play a key role in lifting that cloud.
Inspired by the aerobatic manoeuvres of the swift, a new “flapping wing” aircraft can hover, glide and dive much better than quadcopter-style drones.
Recent shark-related deaths fuel the debate around the best way to keep people safe in the water, without hurting marine wildlife.
An influx of drone technology will mean changes to how cities are built.
Koalas are notoriously difficult to detect. Traditional methods are costly and labour intensive. So we found a more efficient way to locate koalas in eastern NSW, using drones.
Wild dolphins are fast, smart and hard to study, but it is important to understand how human actions affect their health. So we are building a drone to sample hormones from the blowholes of dolphins.
