Silvana Bocanegra, coordinator of HeathDrones project, will visit the Group of Numerical Optimization and Modeling - GNOM (https://gnom.upc.edu/) at UPC. Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya from 27 July 2015 to 08 August 2015. The research group maintains projects with the GNOM-UPC since 2011. The goal of this technical visit is to evaluate the use of large scale optimization algorithms and modeling strategies on routing algorithms and on-board computation for the software plataform of drones.algorithms, healthdrones, search based software engineering
Researchers acquire 40% of the equipment according to project HEALTHDRONES. The equipment is to improve the simulation infrastructure to test algorithms used to assess the degree of programmability of the software platform developed for UAVs.
The first results
Some autonomous simulation test flight controlled by our “API” in a Parrot Elite model and without GPS or GPRS or any kind of manufacturer facility have been done. They can be found here:
Some photos are also available illustrating how we use Arduino to control the UAV. Thus, we became independent of the trading platform.
The next steps
The entire process will be documented in a dissertation to be completed in August 2015 (www.ppgia.ufrpe.br) and subsequently published in a scientific journal in the area.
Another dissertation is underway (first results even in 2015). This tests the degree of programmability platform developed when applied to control outbreaks in populations.algorithms, computational epidemiology, healthdrones, software engineering, uav
