Air traffic controllers for drones
Drone technologies are increasingly presented as a potential efficient way to improve the safety and efficiency of civil transport. Nevertheless, so far, security issues have made it impossible to fly drones at low altitudes in most civil environments, since technologies related to drone guidance and remote control have not reached the required readiness level. To ensure airspace safety, a traffic management system for drones is essential. The EU-funded LABYRINTH project will study centralised planification systems capable of communicating with drones operating in certain areas and compute paths to avoid collisions. The project will create a U-space-based technology to meet the needs of autonomous drone applications. This technology will be deployed in different civil scenarios such as roads, seaports, and airports.
