Introduction:
 
The micro air vehicle team of Amirkabir University of Technology (AUTMAV) has incepted its activity since 2011, this team consists of under- and post- graduate students of Aerospace, Computer and Electrical Engineering and its research fields are as following:
1- Micro air vehicles control scheme
2- Designing and implementation of controllers
3- Micro air vehicles smartization
4- Participatory and interactive control for micro air vehicles
Holding workshops in Iranian Aerospace Society conference in 2014 and 2015, participating in the execution of nationwide Micro Air Vehicles competitions and administering The National Aerospace Competition of Amirkabir University of Technology for four times build the idealistic resume of this laboratory. In addition, this team has annually and persistently taken part in the international IMAV competitions and conferences, and has submitted 7 acknowledged articles in these conference section.
 
The capabilities of the lab are as follows:
2D and 3D mapping
Aerial photography and filming
Designing and construction of micro air vehicles intended for special missions and crisis management. (Portable ambulance, detection, peripheral data gathering and …)
Being equipped with top notch tools, this laboratory is also operative in the educational field.
