Future Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) are expected to be nearly autonomous and composed of heterogeneous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). While most of the current research focuses on UAV avionics and control algorithms, ground task automation has come to the attention of researchers during the past few years. Ground task automation not only relieves This(More)
A key requirement for the complete autonomy of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is the replenishment of its energy source and other consumables. Such processes are typically overseen and conducted by a human operator, may be time consuming and effectively reduce the operating range of the system. To satisfy the requirements of UAV customers such as military(More)
Automated public urban freight transportation networks have the potential to greatly increase the energy efficiency of material transport by more closely matching the mass of the goods being transported with the mass of the transportation apparatus and reduce the cost to society by removing the requirement for human supervision for each package.
