Courier drone is taught to plot a route without GPS
TSU and the Geoscan Group of Companies have signed an agreement on collaboration to create intelligent control systems for drones. In particular, as part of the Smart Campus project, the partners will solve technical problems to ensure the autonomy of a drone even without a GPS signal, the accuracy of cargo delivery, and minimal errors during landing.
- TSU’s partner, Geoscan, has provided the university with a new platform that has high functional capabilities, - says Stanislav Shidlovsky, dean of the TSU Faculty of Innovative Technologies. - In particular, this drone can operate at low temperatures, down to -40°С, and its carrying capacity with absolute flight stability, including in windy weather (up to 15 m/s), is sufficient for a wide range of tasks. The advantage of this flight platform is its adaptation to performing tasks in the climatic conditions of our country, which cannot be said about the DJI platforms actively used in the world.
Now scientists at the TSU Faculty of Innovative Technologies are developing an intelligent superstructure for the drone: they are solving technical problems. Among them are problems that arise in the last mile.
