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).

  • Linear holding for airspace flow programs: a case study on delay absorption and recovery 

    Xu, Yan; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2018-08-07)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper presents a method to introduce linear holding to flights affected by Airspace Flow Program (AFP) initiatives. Trajectories are optimized at their planning stage in such a way that the program performance is ...
  • Arrival trade-offs considering total flight and passenger delays and fairness
