Mini-helicopters in greenhouses: Research project nominated for Houska Prize

Greenhouses are currently not up to date with the latest technology. In order to increase food production there, mini-helicopters could be used in the future.  Their task will be to record the condition of the plants 24 hours a day, without GPS and without human assistance.  A team of researchers at the University of Klagenfurt is developing the technological foundations for deploying these “flying helpers”. Their project has been nominated for the Houska Prize 2024.

Drones inspect electricity pylons: Navigation technology under development at the University of Klagenfurt

Power lines are frequently damaged during snowfall or snowstorms. Until now, engineers working for the energy providers have had to painstakingly inspect power pylons and insulators on site to check for damage. In the future, drones will be able to perform this task. Researchers at the University of Klagenfurt are developing new technologies to support autonomous inspections.

To improve safety: Using swarms of drones to inspect bridges

The construction industry is also benefiting from digitalisation: BIM (Building Information Modelling) creates digital twins of construction projects, from planning to maintenance. To ensure that the condition of civil infrastructure such as bridges can be continuously mapped in the digital twin, it is planned to collect data from swarms of drones in the future. In a project funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), researchers at the University of Klagenfurt are now developing a technology that will increase the reliability and robustness of inspection missions by swarms of drones.
