Project investigator Chengyu Cao says similar work is being done at other universities, including Virginia Tech.
UConn is one of 63 sites here to fly drone aircraft in the U.order tramadol., 25 of which are also institutions of higher education, though school officials had to dismiss the notion that the FBI would be using UConn to fly surveillance drones.
