La recerca del grup Icarus se centra en l'àmbit dels vehicles aeris no tripulats, també anomenats UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). Com el seu nom indica aquests aparells no disposen d'un pilot humà a bord. L'objectiu del grup és investigar tecnologies que permetin desenvolupar UAVs de baix cost amb capacitat per realitzar missions de caràcter civil de forma totalment autònoma per tal que puguin actuar en situacions crítiques, D-cub situations (Dull,Dirty,Dangerous).

  • Operating cost based cruise speed reduction for ground delay programs: Effect of scope length 

    Delgado Muñoz, Luis; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2014-11-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Ground delay programs typically involve the delaying of aircraft that are departing from origin airports within some set distance of a capacity constrained destination airport. Long haul flights are not delayed in this ...

    1 Abstract In this paper an initial implementation of a real - time aircraft trajectory optimization algorithm is presented . The aircraft trajectory for descent and approach is computed for ...
  • Enhancement of a time and energy management algorithm for continuous descent operations 

    Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Pérez Batlle, Marcos; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Vilardaga García-Gascon, Santi; Bas, Isidro; Birling, Florent; Verhoeven, Ronald; Marsman, Adri (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In previous research, an aircraft trajectory planning algorithm was developed aiming at optimizing continuous descent operations with required times of arrival at given waypoints. A non-linear optimal control problem was ...
  • Conflict Free Trajectory Optimisation with Target Tracking and Conformance Monitoring 

    Vilardaga García-Gascon, Santi; Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Duan, Pengfei; Uijt de Haag, Maarten (2014)
    Conference report

    Oller Arcas, Antonio; Gallardo Gómez, Antonia; García Villegas, Eduard; Valero García, Miguel (2014)
    Article
    Open Access
    Actualmente, empresas como Amazon o Google aplican un método llamado Scrum para agilizar el proceso de desarrollo de sus proyectos software y mejorar la calidad de los resultados. Por otro lado, en el entorno docente, la ...
  • Monitoring radiological incidents through an opportunistic network 

    Reyes Muñoz, María Angélica; Pastor Llorens, Enric; Gasull, Marti; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In case of radiological incidents before to send a human team to the site would be better have real time information about the situation that rescue teams can find. In this paper we simulate an opportunistic network over ...
  • Real-time simulations to evaluate the RPAS integration in shared airspace 

    Pastor Llorens, Enric; Pérez Batlle, Marcos; Royo Chic, Pablo; Cuadrado Santolaria, Raúl; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents the work done during the first year in the WP-E project ERAINT (Evaluation of the RPAS-ATM Interaction in Non-Segregated Airspace) that intends to evaluate by means of human-in-the-loop real-time ...
  • UAV flight experiments applied to the remote sensing of vegetated areas 

    Salamí San Juan, Esther; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Pastor Llorens, Enric (2014-11-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    The miniaturization of electronics, computers and sensors has created new opportunities for remote sensing applications. Despite the current restrictions on regulation, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with ...
  • Vehicle density in VANET Applications 

    Reyes Muñoz, María Angélica; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Lopez, Marco; Excelente Toledo, Cora Beatriz (2013)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper analyzes how street-level traffic data affects routing in VANETs applications. First, we offer a general review about which protocols and techniques would fit best for VANET applications. We selected five main ...
