SDU UAS Center conducts research to support our mission of creating drone technologies and applications to the benefit of society.
We collaborate with the industry and engage deeply in UAS regulatory development in Denmark and EU.
Our main research directions are:
- Autonomous BVLOS flying (Beyond Visual Line of Sight): The development of drones that autonomously navigate the environment in a safe and reliable manner, sensing and avoiding any obstacles in their path.
- Large-scale perception: The development of techniques for automatically extracting specific and detailed information from UAV-mounted camera systems.
- System modeling: The development of formal models of single UAVs, improving control and power management, as well as models of multiple UAVs, enabling coordination and traffic management.
- Energy-efficient systems: The development of energy-efficient algorithms and components that extend the flight time and operating distance of UAV.
These research directions are supported by our work across 6 different areas:
- Control systems for UAVs
- Embodiment and Ethics for UAVs
- Embedded electronics
- Model-driven Software Development
- Perception and computer vision systems for UAVs
- UAS Robotics Integration
