sFly “Swarm of Micro Flying Robot”
[January 2009 - December 2011]
sFly is an European research project involving 4 research laboratories and 2 industrial partners. This project will focus on micro helicopter design, visual 3D mapping and navigation, low power communication including range estimation and multi-robot control under environmental constraints. It shall lead to novel micro flying robots that are:
Inherently safe due to very low weight ( <500g) and appropriate propeller design;
Capable of vision-based fully autonomous navigation and mapping;
Able of coordinated flight in small swarms in constrained and dense environments.
The contribution of e-Motion to sFly focuses on autonomous cooperative localization and mapping in open and dynamic environments.
