New RAL paper on Aerial Manipulation

I am very glad to share with you our recent RAL paper "Dynamic End Effector Tracking with an Omnidirectional Parallel Aerial Manipulator". In this paper, we propose a new aerial manipulator combining the 6D workspace of an omnidirectional aerial vehicle, with the precision and agility of a parallel manipulator. We designed a full-dynamic controller that improves performance for dynamic end effector tracking but also reveals current limitations and motivates future studies for precise and dynamic aerial manipulation.

Kudos to Karen Bodie for the great work!
