    The ability to meet a controlled time of arrival during a continuous descent operation will enable environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient descent operations while simultaneously maintaining airport throughput. However, ...
  • Synchronised Demand-Capacity Balancing in Collaborative Air Traffic Flow Management 

    Xu, Yan; Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Delahaye, Daniel (2020-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper introduces a novel approach for synchronised demand-capacity balancing within a proposed Collaborative Air Traffic Flow Management framework. The approach is aimed to realise optimising traffic flow and scheduling ...
  • Deep reinforcement learning for drone delivery 

    Muñoz Ferran, Guillem; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Çetin, Ender; Salamí San Juan, Esther (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-09-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Drones are expected to be used extensively for delivery tasks in the future. In the absence of obstacles, satellite based navigation from departure to the geo-located destination is a simple task. When obstacles are known ...
  • Wearable sensors for evaluating driver drowsiness and high stress 

    Becerra, Patricia; Reyes Muñoz, María Angélica; Guerrero Ibañez, Juan Antonio (2019)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    FLOR will redefine the paradigms under which remote pilots and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems have been designed and operated during the last decades; i.e. a dedicated crew manages a single aircraft, indistinctive from ...
  • GPS-SLAM: an augmentation of the ORB-SLAM algorithm 

    Kiss-Illés, Dániel; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Salamí San Juan, Esther (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-11-15)
    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 ...
