IoT applications with UAS integration


This research line is related with control and navigation of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). In particular, we focus in the popular quadcopter implementation. Our aim is to provide a high degree of autonomy to the quadcopter, so that it is able to flight through a (probably unknown) scenario, in order to perform some high level mission.

We employ the Matlab/Simulink software for modeling and simulating the quadcopter. This work environment also allows us to design and to test path planning and following mechanisms beyond the state-of-the-art. Furthermore, we rely on the ROS/Gazebo platform, which provides a more realistic simulation environment. As a complementary task, we address the processing of the information gathered by the onboard sensors and cameras, by having in mind the final IoT aplication.
