Ok, In this episode, I'm joined by Christopher Lum, Research Assistant Professor in the University of Washington's Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Chris also co-heads the University's Autonomous Flight Systems Lab, where he and his students are working on the guidance, navigation, and control of unmanned systems. In our conversation, we discuss some of the technical and regulatory challenges of building and deploying Unmanned Autonomous Systems. We also talk about some interesting work he's doing on evolutionary path planning systems as well as an Precision Agriculture use case. Finally, Chris shares some great starting places for those looking to begin a journey into autonomous systems research.
