Innovative aerial service robots for remote inspections by contact

Project description

Cognitive Systems and Robotics Innovative aerial platform for physically interacting with the human world The goal of the AIRobots project is to develop a new generation of aerial service robots capable to support human beings in all those activities which require the ability to interact actively and safely with environments not constrained on ground but, indeed, freely in air. The step forward with respect to the “classical” field of aerial robotics is to realize aerial vehicles able to accomplish a large variety of applications, such as inspection of buildings and large infrastructures, sample picking, aerial remote manipulation, and so forth. The aerial platform will be remotely supervised by the operator with the use of haptic devices and will be like a flying hand for the human, thanks to force and visual feedback strategies. body {\\tbackground: #FFF;}
