UAV motion planning for multi-coverage

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with onboard cameras are increasingly deployed in various applications including surveying, search and rescue, inspection as well as video production. In all these applications, the UAVs move – in many cases autonomously – to capture imagery of sufficient quality of the environment or objects of interest.  […]

Aerospace best paper award

Stochastic Trajectory Generation Using Particle Swarm Optimization for Quadrotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has been selected as the best research article published in 2017 in the MDPI Aerospace journal. The paper is co-authored by Babak Salamat and Andrea Tonello. It provides a realistic stochastic trajectory generation method for unmanned aerial vehicles. […]

Packages delivered by air: Drones as delivery service

What has travelled by road to reach us until now could be delivered by drones in the future. This has many advantages: Poor rural transport infrastructure or persistent congestion in large cities can be bypassed. In 2013, Amazon was among the first to announce the intention to deliver goods using […]

A Game of Clones

In October 2017 we took the first steps in the research project “Game of Clones – Students model the dispersal and fighting of the knotweed”, a project funded by the research program Sparkling Science of the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy. The Game of Clones project should approach […]

Power lines that transport data

Power Line Communication (PLC) uses electricity cables to transmit data. Andrea M. Tonello, professor at the Institute of Networked and Embedded Systems, was interviewed by Katharina Tischler-Banfield. He tells us whether PLC represents the future of the Internet and whether it will revolutionise the transmission of data. The greatest advantage […]

re:publica: Drones & Co

Samira Hayat and I attended re:publica 2017 in Berlin. It was an exciting event not least because Samira gave a very personal talk about drones and their application in disaster response.
