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).

  • Study of a complete free route airspace implementation in the european airspace 

    Nava Gaxiola, Cesar; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Royo Chic, Pablo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Free route airspace permits users to freely plan a route between defined entry and exit waypoints, with the possibility of routing via intermediate points. Flights flying in a free route area remain subject to air traffic ...
  • Self-training by reinforcement learning for full-autonomous drones of the future 

    Kersandt, Kjell; Muñoz Ferran, Guillem; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Drones are rapidly increasing their activity in the airspace worldwide. This expected growth of the number of drones makes human-based traffic management prohibitive. Avionics systems able to sense-and-avoid obstacles ...
