Putting eyes in the sky to relocate vessels
Drones are fast taking over our skies, with potential that is yet to be fully explored. Integrated with the European global satellite-based navigation system Galileo, a new hybrid mobile robot UGV-UAV (unmanned ground vehicle – unmanned aerial vehicle) is being designed for the efficient relocation of vessels. The EU-funded HUUVER project is developing this drone, which will provide authentication service and precise navigation. The HUUVER system will include a core management system with features such as mission planning navigation, guidance and control. The project is also developing an end-user mobile application. Eventually, the HUUVER platform may be used in search and rescue missions as well as patrolling and mentoring.
