Agile Load Transportation : Safe and Efficient Load Manipulation with Aerial Robots

  title={Agile Load Transportation : Safe and Efficient Load Manipulation with Aerial Robots},
  author={Ivana Palunko and Patricio Cruz and Rafael Fierro},
  journal={IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine},
In the past few decades, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have become promising mobile platforms capable of navigating semiautonomously or autonomously in uncertain environments. The level of autonomy and the flexible technology of these flying robots have rapidly evolved, making it possible to coordinate teams of UAVs in a wide spectrum of tasks. These applications include search and rescue missions; disaster relief operations, such as forest fires [1]; and environmental monitoring and… CONTINUE READING
