Drone Net Promises Cost-Effective Security

2018-10-21T04:27:13+00:0021.10.2018|Kategorien: Anti-Drone, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , |

Someday soon, a “Drone Net” now under development at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University could provide a cost-effective way to protect small airports, university and corporate campuses, farms or other operations from irresponsible drone operators. The game-changing technology, based on a network of passive rooftop sensors that capture electro-optical and infrared data (EO/IR), continuously scans the sky – […]

Microwave Beams Could Power UAS

2018-10-19T06:46:35+00:0019.10.2018|Kategorien: Aircraft Propulsion & Energy, News, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , , |

Researchers at Queen’s University Belfast are developing technology that could see the drones powered by microwave beams from the ground, opening up the possibility of continuous flight. Existing wireless power transfer (WPT) systems require very close proximity, such as the charging pads used for smartphones and electric cars, based on electromagnetic induction. Instead, in an […]

Improving Cellular Network Coverage with UAVs

2018-09-21T07:09:23+00:0021.09.2018|Kategorien: News, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , |

RUDN University mathematicians have simulated the work of a cellular network and modelled the use of unmanned aerial vehicles as additional transmitters. Most of the available communication systems have flat coverage and do not take into account the difference in altitude, which results in the appearance of the so-called “blind” zones. Flying drones could solve […]

Novel Flying Robot Mimics Rapid Insect Flight

2018-09-19T06:48:34+00:0019.09.2018|Kategorien: News, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , |

 A novel insect-inspired flying robot, developed by TU Delft researchers from the Micro Air Vehicle Laboratory (MAVLab), has been presented in Science (14 September 2018). Experiments with this first autonomous, free-flying and agile flapping-wing robot – carried out in collaboration with Wageningen University & Research – improved our understanding of how fruit flies control […]

Teaching Drones to Fly Through Small Holes

2018-09-14T06:56:25+00:0014.09.2018|Kategorien: News, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , |

 The University of Maryland’s Perception and Robotics Group has just published a paper on a system that allows a drone to fly through very small and completely unknown gaps using just a single camera and onboard processing.  The UMD researchers tested their theory with a Bebop 2 drone packing an NVIDIA Jetson TX2 GPU. A variety of different gaps […]

Robotic Herding of a Flock of Birds Using Drones

2018-09-07T06:47:47+00:0007.09.2018|Kategorien: News, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , |

 Researchers in Korea have made a new algorithm for enabling a single robotic unmanned aerial vehicle to herd a flock of birds away from a designated airspace. This novel approach allows a single autonomous quadrotor drone to herd an entire flock of birds away without breaking their formation. Professor David Hyunchul Shim at KAIST […]

Asia’s First Fully Solar-Powered Quadcopter Drone

2018-08-30T06:59:06+00:0030.08.2018|Kategorien: Aircraft Propulsion & Energy, News, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , , |

A team from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has achieved a major step forward in stretching the capabilities of quadcopter drones by powering the flight solely by natural sunlight. A first in Asia, the current prototype has flown above 10 metres in test flights – higher than a typical three storey building – utilising solar […]

GPS Denied Navigation for UAS Using Aviation Transponders

2018-08-17T07:24:58+00:0017.08.2018|Kategorien: Data Links & Communications, News, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , , |

Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a new method that gives aircraft a backup system in case GPS fails: An antenna on the ground that can tell a drone where it is. The team successfully tested their system in June. “Right now GPS is the one ring to rule them all: Without it, […]

NASA Awards $2.3 Million in Grants to Minority Serving Institutions to Expand STEM Education

2018-08-15T06:40:07+00:0015.08.2018|Kategorien: News, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , |

NASA’s Minority University Research and Education Program (MUREP) Aerospace Academy (MAA) has selected seven Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) for cooperative agreement awards totalling nearly $2.3 million. The grants will be used to build the interest, skills and knowledge necessary for K-12 students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. These selections will increase the […]

Embry-Riddle UAS Team Tracks Shoreline Erosion

2018-08-10T08:24:32+00:0010.08.2018|Kategorien: News, Non-Military & Commercial UAS, Research, UAS Vision|Tags: , , , |

Along the shorelines of Menard-May Park in Edgewater, Florida this week, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or drones, flew high above the water capturing high-resolution images and video of this area of Mosquito Lagoon, which is part of the Indian River Lagoon system. The aerial reconnaissance survey, organized and flown by faculty, staff and […]
