Autonomous systems and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), can play an important role in many applications including disaster management, and the monitoring and measurement of events. Currently, many missions cannot be accomplished or imply a high level of risk for the people involved (pilots and drivers), as unmanned vehicles are not available or not permitted. These missions could be performed or facilitated by using autonomous helicopters with accurate positioning and the ability to land on mobile platforms, such as ship decks. These applications strongly depend on the UAV reliability to react in a predictable and controllable manner in spite of perturbations, such as wind gusts.
On the other hand, the cooperation, coordination and traffic control of many mobile entities are relevant issues for applications such as automation of industrial warehousing, surveillance by using aerial and ground vehicles, and transportation systems.
EC-SAFEMOBIL is devoted to the development of sufficiently accurate common motion estimation and control methods and technologies in order to reach levels of reliability and safety to facilitate unmanned vehicle deployment in a broad range of aaplications.
EC-SAFEMOBIL project has made available the public deliverables that have been produced during the 3rd year of the project.
Most of the work has been carried out within the work packages of "Distributed robust estimation involving environment models", "Safe and reliable real-time cooperative networked control" and "Simulation tools"
They are available from the Publishable Resources.
ADM Sevilla 2014 is the second edition of the largest aerospace business event is held
in Spain: 440 registered companies from 28 countries and a conference program and
strategic views, a unique and professional event.
FADA-CATEC exhibited the technologies being developed and established links for future collaborations with more than 20 other institutions.
The presentation “Integrated Projects in the Seventh Framework Programme on new technologies for unmanned aerial systems: ARCAS y EC-SAFEMOBIL” was done by Silvia de los Santos as part of the technical workshops program. June 5th 2014.
The publications produced in the 3rd period of the EC-SAFEMOBIL project is already available. Please, click here to download.
The EC-SAFEMOBIL consortium kindly invite you to take a look at the EC-SAFEMOBIL Newsletter no. 1 at the Publishabñle resources sections at the Press Room corner of our website
Latest advances achieved in the last period are showed.
EC-SAFEMOBIL project has already issued the last pack of public deliverables that have been issued.
An example of what you can find there is how the consoirtum has addressed matters sucha the middleware communication in a wide range of scenarios defined.
They are at public available to be dowloaded from the Publishable reources section at the Press Room corner of our website.
We hope they were of high interest to you.
