Name Swarm of micro flying robots
Acronym SFLY
Area ICT-2007.2.2 Cognitive systems, interaction, robotics (ICT-2007.2.2)
Start Date2009-01-01
Duration 36 months
Status Execution
DescriptionAutonomous micro helicopters are about to play major roles in tasks like reconnaissance for search and rescue, environment monitoring, security surveillance, inspection, law enforcement, etc. The ability to fly allows easily avoiding obstacles on the ground and to have an excellent bird's eye view. Therefore flying robots are the logical heir of ground based mobile robots. Its navigational and hovering advantages make them the ideal platform for exploration, mapping and monitoring tasks. If they are further realized in small scale, they can also be used in narrow out- and indoor environment and they represent only a limited risk for the environment and people living in it. However, for such operations today's systems navigating on GPS information only are not sufficient any more.
