Decentralised drone swarms need real time collision avoidance, thus requiring efficient, real time relative localisation. This paper explores different data inputs for vision based relative localisation. It introduces a novel dataset generated in <i>Blender</i>, providing ground truth optic flow and depth. Comparisons to <i>MPI Sintel</i>, an...

We present a computationally cheap 3D bug algorithm for drones, using stereo vision. Obstacle avoidance is important, but difficult for robots with limited resources, such as drones. Stereo vision requires less weight and power than active distance measurement sensors, but typically has a limited Field of View (FoV). In addition, the stereo...

The use of Grid-stiffened structures has been increasing in the space industry over the last decade. Thanks to it is high specific mechanical properties and excellent damage tolerance characteristics, researchers also started looking into the potential of using them for aeronautical applications. However, not much has been done to investigate...

Due to safety or preservation reasons, certain objects or areas need to be inspected regularly. Currently, the inspection of objects is mostly done in-person, which is labour-intensive and not very effective. With the use of drones, areas and objects can be inspected from new angles at a much faster rate. To effectively monitor these objects...

Propeller noise generally exhibits a rich mixture of tonal and broadband components related to different physical mechanisms. Specifically, the tones are characterized by having deterministic and persistent characteristics, while the broadband counterpart has random behaviour. The separation is essential for the experimenters as they provide...

Flying-wings show great potential for a vast number of applications, in both commercial and military sectors, thanks to their long range and fast forward flight, but suffer due to their lack of vertical take-off and landing capabilities. This paper presents a proof of concept for a novel landing method for a conventional flying wing that does...

The aim of this study is to innovate wave-based depth-inversion towards smarter and faster algorithms to be used with various remote sensing instruments for broad community use. Wave-based depth inversion describes a branch of coastal remote sensing, which uses video recordings of a wave-field to derive depths and thereby create digital maps of...

Small UAVs and in particular the class of micro-UAVs, whose mass is below 2 kg, are constantly rising in popularity for personal as well as professional use, since they are beneficial in many fields such as defense, transportation, monitoring and agriculture. In spite of their advantages, UAVs can be used for terrorist attacks to fly over...

Visible Light Communication (VLC) has been gaining interest in the industry and academia for the last decade. VLC enables a high-speed communication alternative to conventional radio such as Bluetooth or WiFi and presents a solution to the 'spectrum crunch'. More recently, the combination of energy harvesting and VLC has been explored to enable...

The design of electrical machines is complicated due to the number of variables involved and due to competing objectives like efficiency, weight and cost. Another important aspect is the involvement of different physical phenomena such as torque production, electromagnetic fields and thermal heat flow. Thus designs need to satisfy multiple...

Powered by technological advances, commercial drones have wide applications in areas such as photography, search, and rescue. However, the popularity of drones has raised technical and safety challenges for drone management and supervision. Traditional detect-before-track sensing approaches have reduced performance due to drones' low radar cross...

Drone detection and tracking systems are nowadays a requirement in most public, private and political events, because of the increasing risk of unintentional or malicious misuse of these platforms. Moreover, in order to ensure adequate protection, full spatial coverage is a must for every such system. However, the research literature focuses on...

Many sand spits are morphodynamically complex cases that are hard to quantify. Therefore, most case studies on sand spits in a specific type of environment, are descriptive or even non-existent. As is the case for spits in low-energy lake environments, like the two spits at the Marker Wadden islands. Because quantification is necessary for spits...

In order to enable the safe and efficient integration of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles into very low level airspace, modern day research focuses on the development of new traffic services and procedures. One of these is the geovectoring protocol, which aims to reduce traffic complexity by setting limits on the allowed ground speed, course, and...

Highly automated Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or "flying robots" are rapidly becoming an important asset to society. The last decade has seen the advent of an impressive number of new UAV types and applications. For many applications, the UAVs need to be safe, highly automated, and versatile. Safety is a prerequisite to allowing their use in...

The paradigm of large-scale adoption of autonomous drone delivery promises to provide commercial and societal benefits. Over the past years, several companies have investigated the use-case of drones to transport small express packages of fast-food meals and time-sensitive medical supplies. The latter has shown to be highly beneficial in many...

The loss of wildlife due to illegal poaching activity poses threats on both the survival of iconic animal species and the livelihood of local communities. This research proposes a distributed surveillance model in which a UAV swarm autonomously coordinates continuous surveillance in a dynamic environment. The adaptive behaviour of poachers has...

With the rise of new and innovative Urban Air Mobility solutions, there also arises a need to integrate these into the existing airspace. Current airspace users include conventional civil, commercial and general aviation, military air users, police and emergency services as well as a plethora of avian life. Planned additions to the airspace are...

Package delivery via autonomous drones is often presumed to hold commercial and societal value when applied to urban environments. However, to realise the benefits, the challenge of safely managing high traffic densities of drones in heavily constrained urban spaces needs to be addressed. This paper applies the principles of traffic segmentation...
