  1. 1. Coagency of humans and artificial intelligence in sea rescue environments : A closer look at where artificial intelligence can help humans maintain and improve situational awareness in search and rescue operations

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Johanna Seger; [2019]
    Keywords : joint cognitive system; artificial intelligence; automation; situational awareness; search and rescue; uav; public safety; human factors;

    Abstract : This paper aims to answer the question of how artificial intelligence could help humans maintain and/or improve situational awareness in search and rescue operations at sea, as well as where in such processes artificial intelligence could be incorporated to most efficiently compensate for human vulnerabilities and support human strengths. In order to answer this, a joint cognitive system perspective has been adopted whilst joining in search and rescue practice operations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Developing an Optimal Design for A Heart Container Operated Via Drone

    University essay from KTH/Medicinteknik och hälsosystem

    Author : Husam Alkhatib; [2019]
    Keywords : Drone heart container; Ischemic time; Organ; Transplantation;

    Abstract : In the healthcare system when a patient is waiting for a donated heart, the choice of the transportation method is critical. Thus, the efficiency of this procedure relies on the traveling time, which could affect the ischemic time, which is the time that heart can be discharged outside the human body. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design of a UAV-based radio receiver for avalanche beacon detection using software defined radio and signal processing

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Signaler och System

    Author : Richard Hedlund; [2019]
    Keywords : Signal processing; Software Defined Radio; Avalanche; Beacon; Antenna; SDR; DSP; Signalbehandling; Mjuvarudefinierad Radio; Lavin; Lavinsändare; Antenn; SDR; DSP;

    Abstract : A fully functional proof of concept radio receiver for detecting avalanche beacons atthe frequency 457 kHz was constructed in the work of this master thesis. The radioreceiver is intended to be mounted on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or drone)and used to aid the mountain rescue teams by reducing the rescue time in findingavalanche victims carrying a transmitting beacon.

  4. 4. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Positioning Using a Phased Array Radio and GNSS Independent Sensors

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Reglerteknik

    Author : Carl Rapp; [2019]
    Keywords : Sensorfusion; Kalman filter; Phased Array Radio; UAV; Positioning;

    Abstract : This thesis studies the possibility to replace the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) with a phased array radio system (PARS) for positioning and navigation of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). With the increase of UAVs in both civilian and military applications, the need for a robust and accurate navigation solution has increased. READ MORE

  5. 5. Användning av drönare i skogsbranschen

    University essay from SLU/School for Forest Management

    Author : Daniel Marinder; [2019]
    Keywords : UAV; Marknadsundersökning; Ortofoton;

    Abstract : The drone (UAV) was initially developed for military purposes in order to reduce the risk of pilots. Significant for a drone is that it can fly by itself or be remotely controlled by a operator. The drone's size, price and handling have made it more attractive to the forest industry. READ MORE
