    Bio: 

    Kjeld Jensen is a researcher in robotics and other complex cyber-physical systems with a focus on system design, software and wireless communication. His current research spans the areas of sensing and perception, safe and reliable autonomous drones, aerial collision avoidance and IoT.  

    Title of presentation: 

    Towards autonomous drones in Denmark  

    Abstract of presentation: 

    Autonomous drones are considered a key enabler to more sustainable approaches to many tasks within monitoring, inspection, manipulation, transportation, lifting etc. This requires, however, the drones to operate safely near other aircrafts and helicopters. Kjeld will discuss current challenges and activities towards autonomous drones in Denmark.

      Drone technology is seen as having massive commercial potential, but how far are we really? The purpose of this session is to investigate the potential of commercially available drone technology to make a difference for Danish society. Presentations will cover current applications of drone technology, the upcoming hot areas where we expect a massive growth within the next decade, and the research currently being done to support this growth.
