The NIMBUS (Nebraska Intelligent MoBile Unmanned Systems) Lab is an exciting place where the latest research and technology in software and systems engineering, robotics, and sensor networks converges to develop more capable and dependable UAVs.








We are always looking for bright and motivated undergraduate and graduate students interested in contributing to the ongoing projects. If you are interested, please contact the Lab’s faculty directors.

This lab is funded in part through grants from the Army Research Lab, National Science Foundation, USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Institute, and UNL support, and it was setup by some very motivated students and faculty members.

We are generally always recruiting participants for studies with drones or telepresence robots. If you would be interested in participating, please email with the subject “NIMBUS lab study”. Participants are generally paid $10-$25 for 1-2 hours of participation

The NIMBUS Lab is proud to announce that from 2018-2026, we will be hosting a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Site through NSF funding and in coordination with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Summer Research Programs. For more information, and to apply, please visit the Summer Research Program Website. If you have any questions, please email us at Please note that the program is only available for current undergraduate students who are United States citizens or permanent residents.
