Hoffmann, "The Stanford testbed of autonomous rotorcraft for multi agent control (STARMAC
)," in Proceedings of the 23rd Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC '04), vol.
For the specific purposes including academic research, commercial usage, and even military aim, many research groups or institutions have fabricated various quadrotors, such as the X4-flyer , OS4 , STARMAC
, and Pixhawk  which have become the shining stars mentioned on the network, magazines, and all kinds of academic journals.
BigDog, created by Marc Raibert, Kevin Blankespoor, Gabe Nelson, Rob Playter and the Entire BigDog Team (Boston Dynamics) was the best short video; while STARMAC
: Stanford Test-bed of Autonomous Rotorcraft for Multi-Agent Control by Gabriel Hoffmann, Steven Waslander, Haomiao Huang, Vijay Pradeep, Michael Vitus, Jeremy Gillula, and Claire Tomlin (Stanford University) was the best demonstration video.
