About the Project

Concept

Although drones have come through a mesmerizing development, they still have many limitations. While they are operating most of the time limitless in the sky, their utility in ground-based missions is impossible. This project comes across the limitations and provides the answer and technological solution to the emerging market of the autonomous vehicles. The concept of Hybrid UAV-UGV for Efficient Relocation of Vessels (HUUVER) describes how to create a platform that combines in an elegant way two types of propulsion systems in a compact and highly integrated autonomous drone.

HUUVER

The drone will be the first fully integrated with the Galileo navigation system, profiting from the authentication service and precise navigation solution. The motivation of the presented concept takes its origin directly from the user perspective and expectations, where the flexibility, reliability, world-wide coverage are among the most mentioned. Completing for interfacing with an end-user, the system will also include a server-based application connected to the drone with features like planning and management of the drone mission and navigation. An important part of the system is a mobile, as a direct application for the end-user, mission launch and control tool.

HUUVER is going to be a drone that fills the lacks of current UAV solutions. The construction of a drone connects advantages of both, flying and driving, machines. What does it mean? The capability of almost all-terrain movements like flying, perching, driving, climbing, vertical take-off and landing. It will be constructed to perform professional missions in various, difficult conditions. The ability of ground-based movements will allow for reaching the areas unavailable from the air.

Mobile application

A lightweight mobile application would be extension to the server-based application dedicated for the application with large representation of users. The palette of options and information will be significantly reduced in relation to the shell application, but on the other hand that layer of the HUUVER system will be easiest to deploy and gaining worldwide coverage thanks to the existing telecommunication infrastructure. The application will be available for everyone to download on mobile devices with the Google Android system from the Google Play store and for the Apple iOS in the Apple App Store. This application will allow to check the availability of the drone and call it to perform a rescue mission, watch the drone localization, time to arrive, health of the system and many others in connection with status of the mission. The mobile application will be easy to use for everyone without the need for specialized knowledge. The application will be connected to mission management system using a dedicated API.

HUUVER OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

HUUVER – A big step from drones to hybrids
First field-tests coming soon

Drones are fast taking over our skies, with potential that is yet to be fully explored. They are applied in various contexts, however, coming up against their limits when applied, for instance in difficult terrain or indoor contexts.
The project HUUVER (Hybrid UAV-UGV for Efficient Relocation of Vessels) develops a prototype UAV-UGV platform that combines two types of propulsion systems. This patented technical solution activates flying and driving capabilities in one compact and highly integrated autonomous drone. Moreover, the HUUVER drone is using the Galileo precise positioning and authentication service, providing great value for high-quality positioning, navigation and documentation purposes. For interfacing with an end-user, the HUUVER solution also includes a core management system with features like mission planning navigation, guidance and control as well as an end-user mobile application enabling mission demand and launch control. The HUUVER platform is currently tuned to be successful operated in professional missions for Search & Rescue, Patrolling & Monitoring and Industrial Intralogistics.

Following the successful development and technical validation of the HUUVER prototype, the solution will be subjected for farther field-testing in the application areas concerned, according to specific NSTS-02 EU category operations. Main aim of these tests is to proof operational abilities of HUUVER in both: flight and drive scenarios. For the Search & Rescue use case, HUUVER is deployed to locate missing persons in different challenging terrain settings as both a complementary and primary search solution in addition to human foot patrols. The Patrolling & Monitoring use case will be piloted also in the industrial sites and in high-security utility contexts.

For more information on the project and the field-tests, please visit https://huuver.eu or contact HUUVER project manager Jakub Węglarz from Dronehub (jakub.weglarz@dronehub.ai).

HUUVER is a co-funded Innovation Action under the topic “SPACE-EGNSS-2-2019-2020 - EGNSS Applications Fostering Digitisation”. The project team comprises seven organizations from five EU member states: Dronehub (Poland), RECTANGLE (Poland), LUT University (Finland), everis (Spain), GINA Software (Czech Republic), BLADESCAPE (Austria) and Brimatech Services (Austria).

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 870236.
