Aerial Co-robots of the Future: Safety, Intelligence, Certification
This presentation discusses the key challenges of the 21st century and puts the right perspective for development of aerial co-robots of the future by emphasizing safety, intelligence and certification. Each of these three pillars hinge on fundamental theoretical developments for support. Challenges with flight control, cyber-resilience, cooperative path planning, intelligent control, and certification are discussed, and fundamental limitations of feedback loops are revisited for development of safe intelligent control. The fourth industrial revolution challenges new paradigms for certification. Applications in elderly care, scalable e-commerce, and precision agriculture are discussed.
