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 […]
