Titan mechanical engineers hope to build UAV for the future

TitanUAV2013A team of mechanical engineering students are working on a plane so good that it will fly itself … literally.

The 13 students have designed an unmanned air vehicle that will use an onboard camera and image recognition software to surveil an area, just like drones used by the military and law enforcement.

In its second year of competition, the team hopes to build their program so it will one day match the success of their colleagues who work on the storied Titan Formula SAE race cars.

Despite their humble beginnings and the issues they have had so far, the mechanical engineers hope that as they complete their senior project, they can establish partnerships with local manufacturers and suppliers, then retune procedures to help future Cal State Fullerton students improve upon their work.
