Technology UPDATES

The current reference implementation makes use of MavLink communication over 802.11p. As Flight stack PX4 open source - https://px4.io/ - is running on the NXP FMUK66 flight management unit.

Our idea

850.000 drones are about to be in the air until 2030 just in Germany1. These will operate in various fields such as surveying, inspection, logistic, and filming. Also, large enterprises such as Amazon, UPS or DHL are about to set up large drone fleets. This raising number of drones being in the air increases the risk of collisions even with Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) systems. Just as in manned aviation a robust collision prevention system is needed to increase the safety level of drone operations, especially in high-density urban airspace. And a high safety standard will also increase the acceptance of people regarding drone operations. So, possible customers are drone operators, who want to retrofit their existing drones, as well as drone manufacturers.

To prevent collisions, a drone has to either detect other aircraft with on-board sensors like radar, lidar or cameras, or it has to have a communication-based system providing awareness of the surrounding airspace. Drones tend to be small compared to manned aviation and fixed wing drones can even get quite fast. This poses challenges to on-board sensors with their limited range and spatial resolution. Therefore, a cooperative solution where participants exchange their position, speed and heading with each other is needed.

Our service will provide the required data to enable collision prevention for drones using a robust communication link based on the IEEE 802.11p communication technology. As discussed before, other communication technologies aren’t suitable for the special requirement on a drone, such as low weight and easy integration in existing flight stacks. Using open standard will also increase the probability, that other vendors will integrate the required messages in their hardware and software.

Especially for high-density urban airspaces, a high position accuracy is needed to navigate assigned flight paths accurately and to report the actual position, speed and heading with high accuracy. This means, that drone operation will directly profit from Galileo’s increased position accuracy.

The team

Tobias Koch (project lead) [LinkedIn] is a digital allrounder focusing on synergies of various technologies, projects, and organizations. Currently, Tobias manages international projects in the fields of 3D printing (AM), energy, mobility, and drones which apply technologies of blockchain, artificial intelligence, and M2M communication.

Noah Winneberger (business lead) [LinkedIn] is a technology enthusiast, with a background in Front- and Back-End Development, Distributed ledger technologies, as well as Machine Learning. Apart from leading technology, innovation has become a key point of interest with the passion for finding new ways of disrupting industries with new business models, fostering the creative individual in companies and visualizing the power of innovation and change.

Jannik Beyerstedt [Xing] is a mechatronics and communication systems engineer by his university degree and currently acts as an embedded systems developer in a project, which should develop a UTM system for urban areas. He has several years of experience in the area of drone to drone communication and the PX4 flight stack. He also brings some knowledge about cryptography, and drone safety, as well as software testing.

Leutrim Mustafa (developer) [LinkedIn] studied mechatronics at HAW HH and acts as a system engineer for consider it. He has experience in the field of ITS (Intelligent Transport System) and V2X (vehicle to anything communication)

Till Witt (deputy project manager) [LinkedIn] holds an MSc (Diploma) in computer science and is a retired Lieutenant and platoon leader of the German armed forces. Working as a technology consultant in the areas of aeronautics and semiconductors, Till enjoys hands-on project work and currently manages projects in the area of 5G, DLT, Industry 4.0 and others both for NXP Semiconductors Germany GmbH as well as his own company consider it GmbH.

Gerald Peklar [LinkedIn] will act as an advisory for our team. He has participated in the DLR City-ATM project, which laid the basis for the proposed technology and he is an experienced drone pilot.
