Grant awarded by the University of Zagreb
The University of Zagreb has decided to fund the project UAVTraffic - Multi-agent based Traffic Control of Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to be lead by Asst. prof. Markus Schatten. The research in UAVTraffic is aimed towards making a first step in developing basic traffic rules for (autonomous) UAVs by using simulation models and small scale field studies. In accordance with this objective, UAVTraffic will make good use of advanced semantic Web technologies (especially of the ontology of cooperative intelligent transport systems developed at the University of Zagreb), multi-agent system methodology (especially proactive agents, automated planning and negotiation algorithms), technologies for machine vision (especially spatial object recognition), the Internet of Things or more specifically the Internet of Vehicles (a network of various devices like smart phones, watches, goggles, cars but also UAVs and other things that will allow for traffic control).
