A half-day workshop to provide knowledge and experience of researchers who have struggled to find, customize, or design a robotic simulator for their own purposes or specific application.
The workshop aims to provide the participants with the knowledge and experience of researchers who have struggled to find, customize, or design a robotic simulator for their own purposes or specific application. The focus is on aerial vehicles, especially multi-rotor aircraft, where we expect simulation solutions to be of continued importance for both research and industrial applications. Simulating Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is a specialized task, because of aerodynamic interactions (with the environment or other robots), the fast operating speed compared to other robots (e.g., mobile, legged), and the potentially large number of interacting robots in three dimensions (e.g., swarms of delivery drones).
The areas mainly adressed will be the Maintenance and Inspection, Autonomy, Collaborative Robots and cloud robotics, Logistics and Urban Air Mobility applications. Round table, moderated by Anibal Ollero with all the speakers about the use of aerial robotics in long range applications.
Recent drone market studies highlight that long-range applications are the ones that will growth more in the future. For these long-range applications, autonomy is a relevant technology, not only from the business case point of view, but also to increase the safety level of the operations. Then, this workshop will be focused on how aerial robotics technologies can support the development of long-range applications. For that reason, we count with three highly technological European SMEs that will explain their experience with highly autonomous drones and long-range operations. Also, the workshop will include interaction with end-users to understand the real needs from this new sector. Finally, it is important that the workshop is promoted by the Aerial Robotics TG and its content and conclusions will be disseminated to all their members.
The 2022 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems, ICUAS ’22, takes place for the first time in Croatia, in the world-famous city of Dubrovnik. The conference venue is the luxurious Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik Hotel.
ICUAS ’22 presents a unique opportunity to meet, interact and shape the future of unmanned aviation, worldwide. ICUAS ’22 is fully sponsored by the ICUAS Association, a non-profit organization.
The central theme of ICUAS ’22 is twofold: 1) aerial robotics, and 2) guidance, navigation, and control of manned – unmanned systems. National and international organizations, agencies, industry, and authorities work towards defining roadmaps of Unmanned Aircraft Systems/Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (UAS/RPAS) expectations, technical requirements and standards that are prerequisite to their full utilization and integration into the national airspace. The next generation of UAS/RPAS will be used for a wide spectrum of civilian and public domain applications.
ICUAS ’22 aims to bring together different groups of qualified representatives worldwide, funding agencies, industry, and academia, to discuss the current state of unmanned aviation advances, and the roadmap to their full utilization in civilian and public domains. Special emphasis will be given to research opportunities, and to ‘what comes next’ in terms of the essential technologies that need to be utilized to advance the state-of-the-art.
The new, innovative aspect of ICUAS ’22 is that it will include for the first time a UAV Competition. The Competition is student focused, offering unique opportunities for students to test and compare their skills with those of their peers, worldwide. It will be organized in two stages: simulation qualifiers and in person finals. The finals will take place during the conference, allowing for students to meet and participate in the conference. Details on how to be part of the UAV Competition may be found on the conference web.
