In this webinar session we will focus on UAV projects in Canada and Germany.
The collaborative Canadian project “St Bernard Search and Rescue UAV” investigates if semi-autonomous UAV are a suitable solution for an immediate, low-cost and low-risk search operation over a known resort domain, e.g. after an avalanche in support of our beloved St Bernard dogs. This research project will lead to the delivery of a prototype that will be able to screen a mountainous area for distressed persons and send their localization to a ground station for rescue.
The project “U-Space Sandbox in the port of Hamburg” demonstrates how a U-Space can be implemented – from set-up and commissioning to regular control of drone traffic. In regions with high air traffic, drones will receive their own kind of traffic system in the future. This should enable to carry out drone flights easily, safely and efficiently. This is the idea behind U-Space that only exists on paper so far. That is now changing. During the test flight period many different UAV will be flying in the Hamburg air space.
