Studying how learning in Virtual and Augmented Reality generalises to skills needed to perform in real life.
This is a project for a master thesis or two. It is a part of a research project funded by Office of Naval Research Global, US. There is thus some funds to support travel and absorb expenses. Despite the description starting with the Background and below, there is a...
Rescue From beneath
Unmanned Underwater Rescue Catamaran (URC).
This is additional information and explanation to my illustration of the UURC.
The task of the UURC: Resque operations mainly for people in water, preventing drowning or freezing.
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?
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?
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!
Web based drone control
How might we design a robust service that can stay connected to a fleet of launch-ready drones and provide instant access for operators anywhere?
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?
How might we deliver an AED safely and precisely from a small fixed wing drone?
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.
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?
