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).

    Research report
    Open Access
    This document establishes the basis for the work to be developed within Work Package 2 of the START project. The objective of this Work Package is to build a methodology that could allow for the obtainment of the probabilistic ...
  • Predict ATFCM weather regulations using a time-distributed recurrent neural network 

    Mas Pujol, Sergi; Salamí San Juan, Esther; Pastor Llorens, Enric (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In recent years, prior to COVID-19, capacity shortfalls in airspace and airports inevitably caused an increase in aircraft delays. Therefore, when it returns to normal conditions, the airspace will exhibit the same capacity ...

    Conference report
    Open Access
    This work present a framework based on datadriven techniques for quantifying and chaos theory for propagating the uncertainty present in the aircraft trajectory prediction process when computing the expected trajectory ...
  • A New Hybrid Optimization Method, Application to a Single Objective Active Flow Control Test Case 

    Coma Company, Martí; Monshi Tousi, Navid; Pons Prats, Jordi; Bugeda Castelltort, Gabriel; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2022-04-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Genetic Algorithms (GA) are useful optimization methods for exploration of the search space, but they usually have slowness problems to exploit and converge to the minimum. On the other hand, gradient based methods converge ...
  • RNN-CNN hybrid model to predict C-ATC CAPACITY regulations for en-route traffic 

    Mas Pujol, Sergi; Salamí San Juan, Esther; Pastor Llorens, Enric (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Meeting the demand with the available airspace capacity is one of the most challenging problems faced by Air Traffic Management. Nowadays, this collaborative Demand–Capacity Balancing process often ends up enforcing Air ...
