    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 […]

     
  • Vision Based Landing

    Intelligent Vision-based Landing System of UAVs

    Background The capability of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to perform landing task is essential for the autonomous operation, especially when they are outside line-of-sight. For autonomous landing, these vehicles need to know by themselves which areas are safe to […]

    Hear and Avoid

    Being allowed to operate an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in operational airspace requires certification of the aircraft while guaranteeing the ability to avoid other vehicles operating in the same airspace. Humans rely on there sensory […]

    DelFly

    In the DelFly project, we design and study autonomous flapping wing MAVs. Our approach is to always work with flying platforms that can carry payload such as a camera. On the one hand, we work […]

  • Autonomous flight of Micro to Nano Air Vehicles

    Paparazzi Lisa-S Autopilot The challenges in autonomous flight of MAVs derive from the stringent weight and power requirements of MAVs. For example, the DelFly II flapping wing MAV weighs around 16 gram, including battery, sensors, […]
