AIRCARRUS - Autonomous Drone Delivery System

Project description

Flying drones to remote locations

Drones can be used in a wide range of applications and offer valuable services in remote locations or critical situations. The EU-funded AIRCARRUS project proposes an autonomous rapid response drone delivery system without ground operators for launching or retrieving operations. The drone is operated through the cloud on a GSM mobile network using the patented Dbotix autopilot system and charged through a sequence of jump stations allowing long-distance travel and automatic load cargo. The project, which exploits existing EU technology programmes, will study the feasibility of improving the delivery drone designed by AERDRON to raise its range and automate charging and payload loading systems. AERDRON has signed several European logistic centre partners in the beta testing programme.
