    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents Global Positioning System-Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (GPS-SLAM), an augmented version of Oriented FAST (Features from accelerated segment test) and Rotated BRIEF (Binary Robust Independent ...
  • Dynamic workload management for multi-RPAS pilots 

    Fas Millán, Miguel Ángel; Pastor Llorens, Enric (2019-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    This document describes a key aspect of NtoM, a concept of operations (ConOps) currently under development, which focuses on the awareness, productivity and safety of Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) pilots controlling ...
  • Comparison of various guidance strategies to achieve time constraints in optimal descents 

    Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Verhoeven, Ronald; Bussink, Frank; Heesbeen, Bart (2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Continuous Descent Operations (CDOs) have been subject of extensive research in the last decades. Even if proving successful in reducing the environmental impact [1], such operations suffer from a well-known drawback: the ...
  • Fuel-efficient trajectories traffic synchronization 

    Pawelek, Adrian; Lichota, Piotr; Dalmau Codina, Ramon; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2019-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Continuous descent operations (CDOs) with required times of arrival (RTA) have been identified as a potential solution for reducing the environmental footprint of aviation in the terminal maneuvering area without compromising ...
  • Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications Display oriented to multiple Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems pilots 

    Fas Millán, Miguel Ángel; Pastor Llorens, Enric (2019-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    A Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) interface oriented to Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) pilots was implemented as part of a synthetic task environment aimed to test the NtoM concept of operations ...
  • NtoM: a concept of operations for pilots of multiple remotely piloted aircraft 

    Fas Millán, Miguel Ángel; Pastor Llorens, Enric (2019-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    The concept of operations proposed here pursues the feasibility, from a human factors perspective, of having a single pilot/aircrew controlling several remotely piloted aircraft systems at once in non-segregated airspace. ...
  • On-the-fly olive tree counting using a UAS and cloud services 

    Salamí San Juan, Esther; Gallardo Gómez, Antonia; Skorobogatov, G.; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are becoming a common tool for aerial sensing applications. Nevertheless, sensed data need further processing before becoming useful information. This processing requires large computing power ...
  • The ARCHADE: ubiquitous supercomputing for robotics. Part I: philosophy 

    Camargo Forero, Leonardo; Royo Chic, Pablo; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2019-04-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work, we introduce Ubiquitous Supercomputing for robotics with the objective of opening our imagination to the development of new powerful heterogeneous multi-robot systems able to perform all kind of missions. ...
  • Linear holding for airspace flow programs: a case study on delay absorption and recovery 

    Xu, Yan; Prats Menéndez, Xavier (2018-08-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    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 ...
