  1. 1. Path Planning with Weighted Wall Regions using OctoMap

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Bergström Jerker; [2018]
    Keywords : UAV; path planning; A*; wall weights;

    Abstract : In the work of the Control Engineering research group of the Department of Computer Science, Electrical and Space Engineering, Signals and systems at Luleå University of Technology a need had arisen for a path planning algorithm. The ongoing research with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles(UAVs) had so far been done with any complicated paths being created manually with waypoints set by the uses. READ MORE

  2. 2. Safe Navigation of a Tele-operated Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC)

    Author : Daniel Duberg; [2018]
    Keywords : unmanned aerial vehicle; safe navigation; tele-operated; robotics; drones; UAV; indoor; collision avoidance; human-UAV interface; interface; human-robot interface; computer science;

    Abstract : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can navigate in indoor environments and through environments that are hazardous or hard to reach for humans. This makes them suitable for use in search and rescue missions and by emergency response and law enforcement to increase situational awareness. READ MORE

  4. 4. Autonomous Exploration and Data Gathering with a Drone

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Abhishek Choudhary; [2018]
    Keywords : Exploration; Autonomous; UAV; Data Gathering;

    Abstract : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are agile and are able to fly in and out of areas that are either dangerous for humans or have complex terrains making ground robots unsuitable. For their autonomous operation, the ability to explore unmapped areas is imperative. This has applications in data gathering tasks, search and rescue etc. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aerodynamics and Structure of a Large UAV

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik

    Author : Oscar Vestlund; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates what design of a large UAV performing VTOL using only electrical motors is the most viable in terms of extending its range. Because it uses batteries for power, its powered time is limited, posing the need for a way of extending its flight time. READ MORE
