About us

DRAFT PoliTo is a student team at Politecnico di Torino that researches and develops innovative solutions infused with Artificial Intelligence with the goal of increasing the autonomy of current drone technology. The Team was founded in 2019 to promote the technical and social growth of students by engaging in challenging projects and competitions. The Team is a wide multicultural and multidisciplinary community whose members come from several education levels and fields of study. The Team is organized into the following groups, managed by Group Leaders (GLs) and conducting R&TD (Research and Technology Development) activities under the supervision of Squad Leaders (SLs).

Groups

Robotic Systems
Engineering

Handles the analysis, design, fabrication, assembly, integration, and test of aeromechanic and avionic systems. Performs software DevOps and develops virtual environments for the integrated simulation of robotic systems.

Deep Learning
and Computer Vision

Focuses on proximity obstacle avoidance, decision making processes and strategy policy identification.
Performs environment perception and mission target localization by exploiting stereovision.

Obstacle Avoidance
and Motion Planning

Oversees path optimization, including computational mapping, motion planning, optimal control and path tracking.
Performs behavioral prediction by exploiting real time data elaboration, data skimming and selective attention.

Simultaneous Localization and Mapping

Addresses architecture design and integration of sensors suite for detection, localization and mapping. Performs sensor data acquisition, analysis and fusion to perform state estimation.

Business & Outreach

Supports the Team through administration activities such as business development, finances and outreach.
