About Jean-Christophe Zufferey

📖 Summary

Jean-Christophe is CEO and co-founder at senseFly Ltd., a fast growing high-tech company specialized in autonomous mini-drones for professional applications such as field surveying, 3D mapping, mining, construction, land management, conservation, and inspection. In 2012, senseFly joined the Parrot group, maker of the famous AR.Drone & Bebop consumer drones. Jean-Christophe has strong links with the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems (LIS), at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), where he co-supervised several PhD students in aerial, bio-inspired and swarm robotics, and taught a master-level course in mobile robotics. After completing his master project at the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh as an exchange student, he graduated in 2001 with a M.S. in micro-engineering from EPFL. In March 2005, he completed his thesis in Autonomous Robotics at EPFL, for which he got the ABB 2006 best thesis award. Jean-Christophe co-authored more than 40 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers. He is the recipient of the best IROS'2006 paper award. In summer 2007, he organised the first international symposium on Flying Insects and Robots bringing together experts of the biology of flying animals with roboticists. In 2008, he released a book entitled Bio-inspired Flying Robots. He also supervised numerous research projects in aerial robotics funded by private or public companies, the Swiss National Science Foundation, or the European community. Aside his professional occupations, Jean-Christophe enjoy flying as a private pilot. He started with a glider license progressively moved to single-engine-piston airplanes to helicopters. He now regularly practices mountain landing with small airplane, country-side landings with Robinson helicopters and aerobatics with an Extra 200 aircraft (http://www.nouvo.ch/2010/05/lingénieur-voltigeur).CEO & founder @ senseFly develops and markets mini-drones that are fully autonomous, user-friendly and safe to use. senseFly is targeting applications such as 2D/3D mapping, mining, land management, crop monitoring, precision agriculture, asset management, humanitarian aid. senseFly is a Parrot company since 2012.
