    Flapping Wing Modelling

    Model identification of small flapping wing vehicles with unsteady aerodynamics requires new approaches. Publications 2013 J. V. Caetano, C. C. de Visser, B. D. W. Remes, C. De Wagter, E. {Van Kampen}, and M. Mulder, […]

     
  • Swarm Exploration with Pocketdrones

    Swarm Exploration with Pocketdrones

    The aim of this project is to investigate and design an autonomous swarm of Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs)to do multi-robot exploration of an unstructured indoor environment. These so called pocket drones are small quadroters with […]

     
  • Extremely light-weight Autonomous MAVs

    Extremely light-weight Autonomous MAVs

    Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) are becoming ever smaller and lighter. This opens new areas of application, mainly because of the capability to access small spaces. A straightforward example of such an application is building inspection. […]

    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

    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 […]
