The ILUV (Intelligent Landing of Unmanned aerial Vehicles) project, developed by UNINOVA and Spin.Works, was one of the proposals funded in the 2nd Evaluation of the PTTI, proposing to transfer intelligent safe landing algorithms for spacecraft (IPSIS technology) to the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) civil applications market (namely, for civil protection and cartography). UNINOVA’s IPSIS algorithm, based on a conceptual mathematical model that combines concepts from multi-criteria decision-making with evolutionary optimization algorithms, and Spin.Works’ UAVs, with embedded guidance, navigation and control systems, and hazards and avoidance algorithms, propose an innovative approach to ensure autonomous and safe UAV landing while reducing its operational costs.
