AUF-RO grant: AI methods for the networked control of assistive UAVs (NETASSIST)

This project develops methods for the networked control and sensing for a team of unmanned, assistive aerial vehicles that follows a group of vulnerable persons. On the control side, we consider multiagent and consensus techniques, while on the vision side the focus is egomotion estimation of the UAVs and cooperative tracking of persons with filtering techniques. NETASSIST is an international cooperation project involving the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca in Romania, the University of Szeged in Hungary, and the University of Lorraine at Nancy, France. The project is funded by the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) and the Romanian Institute for Atomic Physics (IFA), under contract no. 09-AUF.
