Free D (Free the Drones)

Funded by: The Danish Innovation Fund
Period: 2016 - 2020
Project aim: This is a research project with technology and innovation development perspective. To this day, unmanned autonomous drones must stay within visual contact of the pilot to avoid obstacles in the air. The FreeD project is developing technologies that make it possible for drones to fly freely and safely Beyond Visual Line of Sight (B-VLOS). B-VLOS flights will lead to alternative e-commerce transportation opportunities and be an important player in monitoring environmental challenges such as ship emissions. CI2M partners with the SDU UAS Center on this project.
