Sense and avoid in UAS: research and applications
There is increasing interest in the potential of UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) and MAV (Micro Air Vehicle) technology and its wide-ranging applications, including defense missions, reconnaissance and surveillance, border patrol, disaster zone assessment, and atmospheric research. High investment levels from the military sector globally are driving research and development and increasing the viability of autonomous platforms as replacements for the remotely piloted vehicles more commonly in use. UAV/UAS pose a number of new challenges, with autonomy, in particular collision avoidance, detect and avoid, or sense and avoid, as the most challenging, involving regulatory and technical issues. Sense and Avoid in UAS: Research and Applications cover the problem of detecting, detecting, and avoiding UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) in depth and combines the theoretical and application results developed by leading academics and researchers from industry and academia.
• Provides a comprehensive view of the senses and avoids issues in the broader application of autonomous systems.
• Covers human factors, regulatory issues, and the navigation, control, aerodynamics, and physics aspects of the sense and avoids the problem in UAS.
• Provides professional, scientific, and trustworthy content that is simple to understand and apply
• Contributions from leading engineers and researchers in the field are included.
Sense and Avoid in UAS: Research and Applications is an invaluable source of original and specialized information. It acts as a reference manual for practicing engineers and advanced theoretical researchers and also forms a valuable resource for younger engineers and postgraduate students. With reliable sources and a thorough review process, Sense and Avoid in UAS: Research and Applications is a good source of information in an area that is overgrowing but is not well covered.
