Lecture by Prof. Anibal Ollero Toward efficient and safe intelligent aerial robotics and aerial manipulation


In this lecture I will review problems related to the development of autonomous aerial robots able to have long range- endurance flights, but also to interact physically with persons and objects in the environment. I will also consider aerial manipulation, including manipulation while flying but also after perching. In the lecture I will present results of the ERC Advanced Grant GRIFFIN and also of the H2020 projects AERIAL-CORE and HYFLIERS.
