An UAV, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, is a fully equipped and autonomous drone, INTREPID project is developing.
In the INTREPID consortium, ALX society is in charge of developing them. Its main specificities are the ability to fly indoors and outdoors, to have a 2D and 3D sensing. It has a relatively accurate indoor location. The machine makes a 3D analysis in real time of its environment to better locate itself in its environment. It’s really interesting when there is no GPS. Also, if it's not possible to estimate the position GPS of the moving vehicle, it has the ability to estimate displacement based on the 2D image. A software is also developed to interpret what the 3D camera sees.
The UAV is equipped with 15 sensors: for obstacle and positioning. It’s designed for the INTREPID project. The UAV is also involved in the symbiotic operation, developed by CERTH.
