Building a solar powered, autonomous AAV!

About Us

Our vision is to create a solar-powered autonomous drone capable of prolonged aerial surveillance, it can be used by construction firms and NGOs alike.

Founded in 2020, our team is based at InnovationSpace, a hub and center of expertise for challenge-based learning and student entrepreneurship at TU/e. 

Lapyx 2

Our latest prototype, Lapyx 2.1, the second design iteration. With this design we achieved our milestone of designing and building an airworthy system, with predictable flight characteristics . With a wingspan of 3 meters and  weight of 3.2 kilograms it is a perfect stepping stone for the next stage in our development.

Lapyx 3

We are currently working on a new prototype, it will include solar panels.

The students behind this project

We currently consist of highly motivated students from a number of different faculties. All of us are eager to make an impact, and we hope to do so through this student team. Our members work as per their sub-groups: Aerospace, Avionics, Software, and Business.

Our engineering sub-divisions

In order to work efficiently, our work is split between sub-teams, each focusing on a subset of the project. Here you can find short descriptions of what each one focuses on!
