Description:Design of the optimal physical interaction between UAVs and USVs for marine applications. Design of an optimal approach for UAV landing on and taking off from a USV based on visual wave estimation and UAV-USV cooperation. The main challenge here will be the design of a multi-vehicle sensor fusion to allow a UAV-USV coupled control for UAV landing on a USV. To ensure optimal landing, the USV actively helps the UAV to land. Both UxV is equipped with cameras and UV LEDs to detect the other vehicle. Furthermore, both UxVs estimates are communicated and put together to get a more robust state estimate and motion prediction. Finally, a study of different approaches toward achieving optimal UAV-USV coordination will be conducted.
