The Aerial-CORE project aims at developing novel aerial manipulating robotics technologies for the inspection and maintenance of infrastructures in strict collaboration with human workers.
The goal of the project is to design new aerial manipulators from the mechatronics, control, and motion planning point for views. Such aerial robots will be able to operate both autonomously and in physical collaboration with humans while respecting the following paradigms:
- human safety
- privacy preservation
- energy efficiency
The aerial robots will have the following main characteristics:
- force-controlled aerial manipulators
- full actuation and omnidirectionality
- adapting morphology
