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.
