Event description

Description

PercEvite (Sense and avoid technology for small drones) is a project funded by the European organization SESAR, which stands for Single European Sky Air Traffic Management Research. The partners within the project include KU Leuven, TU Delft and Parrot.

PercEvite has developed a multi-communication package with Wi-Fi, LTE, and ADSB-in. This package allows drones to communicate information on their own position to other air users, communicate with other drones, and receive messages from manned aircraft (ADSB-in). Communication will be an important way to ensure sufficient clearance between different air users. The project has implemented a solution for obstacle detection and avoidance. The technique allows the drone to fly both indoors, where the GPS signal is bad or absent, and outdoors. The drone can fly autonomously and stop if it detects obstacles.
