Drone Delivery Services
Drone sensing system can enable a fast response, searching and monitoring individuals using remote sensing capabilities, and providing valuable information for advanced emergency management. Our solution is to propose a novel remote vital sign detection drone system using mmWave radar technology.
SEARCH AND RESCUE
Researching key innovations in Sensor Fusion, Machine Learning & AI, Formal Methods, and Computer Vision to deliver a fully autonomous system capable of landing safely in uncontrolled environments without the supervision of a pilot or trained personnel.
Drone Vision Disruption
The proposed study is to develop a counter-drone system that detects the drone, identifies the camera on it, and disrupts it. This research is divided into three areas, i.e., drone and camera detection, real-time tracking system, and vision disruption based on laser dazzling.
A novel solution to address the concepts of a self-balancing lifting as an add-on for cooperative drones and a trajectory-planning algorithm for multi-agent unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
Mm-Wave Communication Networks in Urban Environments
This project is developing new architectures for next-generation mobile network deployments. A critical aspect is the use of the mm-wave spectrum which offers 10-100 times the bandwidth used by current mobile networks, but comes with many challenges.
RADAR AIDED AGILE NAVIGATION
Navigating in GPS-denied environments is a critical challenge for drone systems, particularly in urban areas with tall buildings, indoor spaces with complex layouts, and remote locations with weak GPS signals. Our solution is to propose a novel Millimeter Wave (mmWave) radar aided drone navigation system.
Drone Delivery Services
VERTICAL GRID SCREENING
Delivery drones typically perform delivery by suspending the parcel vertically or landing the drone to drop off the package. This research proposes a novel drone delivery system for multi-story apartment buildings with balconies that employ two methods to detect unique markers to identify the precise balcony that needs to receive the product.
Monitoring of marine wildlife on the Great Barrier Reef
Drone to Monitor Marine Behaviour and Habitat
The way an animal behaves in its habitat provides insight into its ecological role. Faced with the shortcomings and physical limitations of traditional ground-based data collection techniques, particularly in marine studies, drones offer a low-cost and efficient approach for collecting data in a range of coastal environments.
3D Detection and Tracking of UAVs
We investigate the effective detection ranges of different UAVs based on their construction materials and the effective range & 3D detection performance of a specific UAV at different atmospheric visibility conditions
Airborne Base Station Communication Systems
This project is fundamentally characterising and optimizing information gathering, dissemination, and communication capacities of airborne base stations to enable low latency communications in rural and remote areas.
