Project’s ambition is to provide European technology to render drones as a safe and efficient component of the mobility mix, with differentiated, safe and reliable capabilities in extended beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations. BVLOS demands levels of autonomy and collaboration that have hitherto only been seen in the autonomous vehicle market. It is expected that technologies developed for those markets can be exploited for drone application. Technology can, however, only enable the compliance of operations with the regulatory framework which must also be defined. Fortunately, that process is already in flow with U-Space, building and testing the operational and regulatory framework that enables this new dawn from a regulatory and compliance perspective. ADACORSA will inform these regulatory initiatives about technical capabilities and constraints, based on development and prototype experimentation by partners from both within and outside of today’s aerospace community.
Almende will develop a distributed simulation framework in which drone components, systems and to some extend architectures can be tested. The framework shall be based on ROS and Gazebo and allow for in the loop testing of both software and hardware. Almende will create a simulated environment to test algorithms in a close-to-real-time simulation and multiple possibilities within this environment.
The results of the project are relevant for DoBots, a Almende spin-off. DoBots is focused on software used to make machinery fully automated and synergetic with its surroundings. We expect that many of the software elements related to sensor data fusion, positioning and detect and avoid systems implementation, can be re-used for other applications and projects run by DoBots.
