During his PhD studies,  Liping Shi researched the motion planning for autonomous aerial robots. Motion planning generates efficient and safe actions according to tasks and working environments for autonomous systems. Liping Shi studied how to generate safe actions with multiple aerial robots, how to optimize actions for inspection tasks, and how the aerial robots react to human interactions.

The new research findings contribute to understanding how the task, the autonomous system, and the working environment are modeled and the mechanisms the autonomous system uses to generate safe and efficient motions.

The PhD study was completed at Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Faculty of Technical Sciences, Aarhus University.
