Evolutionary Robotics for Micro Air Vehicles

Small robots with limited computational and sensory capabilities are becoming more commonplace. Designing effective behaviour for small robotic platforms to complete complex tasks is a major challenge. A promising methodology to address this problem is found in Evolutionary Robotics (ER), in which a robot’s controller, and possibly its body, is optimised using Evolutionary Learning (EL) […]

Swarm of Hybrid UAVs for the Acquisition of Distributed Measurements

A Swarm of Hybrid UAV can perform measurements in a large area. To cover this area, the drones need quite some range. However, to perform their measurements, they should be able to land anywhere. That is why the choice is made for hybrid UAVs. A hybrid UAV can take off an land vertically (VTOL) like […]

Project Explorer

Project Explorer

The TU Delft participated in Project Explorer to enhance the operational possibilities of unmanned aerial vehicles for use by Police, Fireman or other government entities. The TU Delft worked on regulatory aspects as well as technical innovations like acoustic detection and laser-range obstacle avoidance to enable safe operation of existing UAV. www.agentschap.nl
