[robotics-worldwide] [journals] Special Issue "Fundamental and Applied Research in Unmanned Aircraft Systems Technology"

Garcia, Luis
Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The study of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) represents a rich and complex combination of fundamental research and applied real-time solutions. Researchers from different domains are proposing and demonstrating new and versatile ways to develop UAS that can become worthwhile and applicable in our modern and complex society. Critical infrastructure inspection and repair, parcel delivery, film and photography in the entertainment domain, as well as wireless information relays, among others, are some of the areas of UAS research development. These previous examples require novel estimation, control, and multi-agent coordination techniques with a solid theoretical background, but at the same time with a computational complexity that allows them to be implemented in a realistic mission.

In this Special Issue our goal is to bring together key researchers in this area to provide the readership of Drones with up-to-date and survey-style papers on fundamental and applied research perspectives on the state-of-the-art in this exciting field. In general, it seeks to collect innovative works on the estimation, control, and coordination of multiple UAS. Specific solutions addressing novel approaches for sensor fusion, GPS-denied navigation, power alternative/efficient systems, computer vision-based solutions, platforms with increased safety measures, as well as cyber-security are also of great interest. Submissions of comprehensive overviews of UAS-related research, with a particular focus on applications are also of interest to the Drones community and are highly encouraged. Please contact the Guest Editors if you have any questions about whether your proposed article would fit the scope of this Special Issue.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Unmanned aircraft systems
multi-UAS coordination
sensor fusion
load transportation
power alternative/efficient systems
computer vision-inspired solutions
safety measures
