About Connect Robotics

Connect Robotics are enabling a high number of drones to flight coordinated and without conflicts, by working on both ends of the system: on the central UTM (Unmanned aerial systems Traffic Management) to generate the paths and manage the traffic in real time; and in the collision avoidance algorithms inside the autopilot.
This is the foundation for autonomous flight BLOS (beyond line of sight) without conflicts and collision, supporting transport application.

The challenge

Connect Robotics mission is to enable the use of Drones for deliveries by developing an all in one solution that pilot and manage small UAVs for autonomous flights BLOS. For a high number of drones to flight coordinates and without conflicts we are developing an auto-pilot with collision avoidance capabilities and a central UTM (Unmanned aerial systems Traffic Management).
We want to empower logistic operators and postal service companies with a system that offers quick deliveries with low cost, to improve the service level.

The solution

Connect robotics solution consist of:
- The UTM, which will generate flight plans, create aerial corridors, manage traffic in real time to avoid overlaps and keep record of flight paths. All made using FIWARE, and will be available for other companies via license fee.
- The auto-pilot, which has sensor fusion to detect obstacles and it runs on an Android device, to have computational and communication capabilities.
We will use the Galileo GNSS to improve the location accuracy, as well as analyse navigation methodology, data gathering and communication protocols used by special mission controllers.
