Cloud Center for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
The purpose of the project is to break the connection between a specific user and the
drone. The aim of the project is that several users should be able to handle multiple
drones from a central. A link between an internet-based platform called Thingworx and
a drone with a built-in controller called...
Operational profile - Aerodynamic configuration - Off-the-shelf solutions suitability - Aerodynamic design - Prototyping
What would be the optimum airframe for the SSRS drone use profile? Is it commercially available? If not, what would it look like?
Electrifying the Rescuerunner
How might we make a Rescuerunner follow a bigger rescue boat automatically, on a safe distance? A mechanical solution.
Publishing a Cloud-connected Aerial Vehicleâ€™s position through a ground based ADS-B transmitter
Help us explore how we might add another layer of safety without having to carry heavy, expensive and power consuming hardware on a small UAV.
Publishing a Cloud-connected Vehicleâ€™s position through the AIS Ground Station Network
Help us build the service layer that pulls position data from a Cloud Service, converts it to the AIS message format and pushes the messages to the Ground Station Network Servers!
No moving parts, less drag, easy waterproofing.
A gyro stabilized gimbal camera on a UAV offers smooth, straight horizon video even in turbulent conditions. How might we stream stabilized video without a physical gimbal?
How might we use all available networks for maximum bandwidth or redundancy?
Cell carrier aggregation is used in several industries, e.g. to send broadcast quality video from TV cameras. How could this be adapted to the demands of small UAV:s?
More sets of eyes are better than fewer.
How might we better the lookout in maritime searches by sharing an online video feed over social networks?
How might we design a marine AIS Transponder with flight control redundancy?
Airborne AIS technology could add another layer of collision avoidance and streamline situational awareness for Search & Rescue parties.
A Boat Driven and Powered Totally by Solar Energy
For a humanitarian and emergency aid outpost/ boat, hundreds of horsepower are not required for a 12,000 pound, forty foot boat such as the MOG Solar Electric Boat to move through the water safely.
All electricity for drive and appliances comes from the solar array atop the boat, currently over...
