University of Southern Denmark’s Centre for UAS was established in 2015 and brings together experts in robotics, computer vision, physics, software engineering, mechanical engineering, and cyber-physical systems to focus on research, education, innovation, and collaboration in the UAS domain.
The Centre provides interdisciplinary engineering solutions to practical problems including precision agriculture, infrastructure inspections, UAS regulatory development, e-commerce delivery, search and rescue, humanitarian relief/disaster assistance, and many additional UAS-related activities.
Broad and global cooperation
Through cooperation with global thought leaders from leading universities, UAS businesses, public-private research institutions, and government regulatory bodies, the Centre advances UAS command and control, reliability, safety, and airspace integration.
Specialization in Drone technology
The Centre offers a specialization in Drone technology as part of an MSc in Engineering in Robot Systems, utilizing a curriculum developed in concert with industry to meet the growing demand for skilled engineers in the UAS field.
Cooperation with Hans Christian Andersen Airport
The SDU UAS Centre is located a short distance from UAS Test Center Denmark at Hans Christian Andersen Airport. SDU UAS Center maintains and operates a UAS lab at the airport for research, education, test flights, and community outreach activities.
By 2020, SDU UAS Centre is recognized as the premier European Union location for UAS education, research, innovation, collaboration, and technology transfer for the benefit of society.
SDU UAS Centre supports the values pursued by the University of Southern Denmark and the Faculty of Engineering.
