Unmanned Aerial Vehicles- UAVs (mission planning)

As the operational capabilities of UAVs are developed there is a perceived need for a significant increase in their level of autonomy, performance, reliability and integration with a controlled airspace full of manned vehicles (military and civilian). As a consequence researchers working with advanced UAVs have moved their focus from system modeling and low-level control to mission planning, supervision and collision avoidance, going from vehicle constraints to mission constraints.

 

  Micro Aerial quadrotors (GCN)

Recent progress in sensor technology, data processing, and integrated actuators has made the development of Micro Aerial Vehicles –MAVs fully possible. The aim of this research is to develop accurate indoor/ourdoor autonomous navigation strategies that allows MAV to perform missions with the same level of autonomy than UAV.
