Intelligent UAVs

Researchers at AMOS develop low-cost unmanned aerial vehicles for dangerous operations. In particular operations offshore with ships and helicopters are expensive and dangerous, and UAV systems can  reduce costs and save human lives.

University of Porto signs colloborator agreement with AMOS

We are very pleased to announce that the University of Porto  has agreed to collaborate with AMOS. Their Underwater Systems and Technology Laboratory has been designing, building, and operating unmanned underwater, surface and air vehicles for networked operations.

University of Porto signs colloborator agreement with AMOS

We are very pleased to announce that the University of Porto  has agreed to collaborate with AMOS. Their Underwater Systems and Technology Laboratory has been designing, building, and operating unmanned underwater, surface and air vehicles for networked operations.

The cooperation is strategically important for AMOS as our common research objectives are focused on the development of theory and tools for the coordination and control of autonomous networked vehicle systems, where vehicles and operators came and go in communications-challenged environments. Common Norwegian and Portuguese interests are vast and include oceanography, security, surveillance of oceans, and marine biology.
 
AMOS and Porto University started collaborating last year during the REP12 exercise, and continued through the REP13 exercise. Professors João Tasso Borges de Sousa, Fernando Pereira, and Pedro Aguiar are principal researchers involved at Porto University, and our cooperation include exchange of students, PhD fellows and researchers, joint research projects and campaigns, software and hardware co-developments, and joint utilization of each other's research infrastructure. The development of the new unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) laboratory has already had strong benefits from the extensive experience of Porto University.

UAV and AUV field experiments with University of Porto and MBARI

June 2013. PhD researcher Frederik Stendahl Leira at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics/AMOS, NTNU participated in the 2013 Rapid Environment Picture (REP) exercise in Portugal.

UAV and AUV field experiments with University of Porto and MBARI

June 2013. PhD researcher Frederik Stendahl Leira at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics/AMOS, NTNU participated in the 2013 Rapid Environment Picture (REP) exercise in Portugal.

The field experiments took place at the Portuguese coast and involved numerous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and surface vessels operating in a coordinated network. AMOS tested UAV-borne thermal imaging with onboard machine vision capabilities in collaboration with the University of Porto and Monterey Bay Aquarium (MBARI) in scenarios such as search-and-rescue and oceanographic missions.

UAV-Lab receives NTNU funding

- Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Laboratory

The UAV-Lab at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics has received a grant from the NTNU advanced scientific equipment (AVIT) program at NTNU.

Professor Tor Arne Johansen is the project leader. The grant will finance a fleet of fixed-wing UAVs, quadro-copters and sensor payload systems.  AMOS is an active partner and user of the UAV-Lab. AMOS reseacrh projects and researchers will use UAV-Lab. for:

  • UAV research on autonomy, intelligent control, instrumentation and sensor technology, real-time processing of measurements, sensor fusion, computer vision, communication technology, etc.

Typical applications are remote sensing, climate research, monitoring of ice in the Arctic, search and rescue operations, inspection and surveillance of resources and infrastructure, etc.
