CalSMV races in the Shell Eco Marathon which competes around the globe across four continents to spread awareness of alternative fuels and to foster the ingenuity of tomorrow’s engineers.
We design, fabricate, & compete with small formula-style race cars against other colleges from around the world.
The group focuses on low-level research on fundamental capabilities for Unmanned Aerial Systems. Areas of particular focus are safety and localization; we aim to enhance the systems’ capabilities by advanced algorithms, mechanical design, and control strategies.
Mechanical Systems Control Lab
The MSC Lab focuses on designing and developing control strategies for mechanical systems. The laboratory has engaged in pioneering research in precision motion control, robot control, vehicle control and mechatronics.
