Multidrone flight demonstration

The University of Klagenfurt launched the Karl Popper Doktorats- und Wissenschaftskolleg “Networked Autonomous Aerial Vehicles (NAV)“ in October 2017; having completed a cycle of just under four years, it is now coming to an end. Stephan Weiss, who serves as the speaker of the programme, reflects on a success story: […]

Multidrone constellation changes

Planning the simultaneous movement of multiple agents represents a challenging coordination problem, and ideally safety and efficiency are jointly addressed. In his master thesis, Paul Ladinig developed a planning algorithm for fast and energy-efficient trajectories with reduced collision potential from a start to an end constellation. This new approach combines […]

Persistent surveillance with multiple robots

Persistent surveillance is the task of continuously monitoring an environment over a long period of time. Many multi-robot applications, including disaster response, security tasks as well as exploration and mapping, can be represented as a persistent surveillance problem. Understanding the problem’s properties and developing efficient algorithms for solving the problem […]

Self-awareness for autonomous systems

Autonomous systems are able to make decisions and potentially take actions without direct human intervention, which requires some knowledge about the system and its environment as well as goal-oriented reasoning. Autonomous systems will undoubtedly pervade into our everyday lives, and we will find them in a variety of domains and […]

More cyber security for intelligent cameras

An interview with Subhan Ullah by Romy Müller To simplify our daily routines, devices designed for the “Internet of Things (IoT)” are usually equipped with cameras that can record images and videos, and transmit these to other devices. Subhan Ullah’s research focuses on increasing the security of these systems, which […]
