HUUVER, a hybrid between UAV and UGV

Although drones have come through a mesmerizing development, they still have many limitations. While they are operating most of the time limitless in the sky, their utility in ground-based missions is impossible. This project comes across the limitations and provides the answer and technological solution to the emerging market of the autonomous vehicles. The concept of Hybrid UAV-UGV for Efficient Relocation of Vessels (HUUVER) describes how to create a platform that combines in an elegant way two types of propulsion systems in a compact and highly integrated autonomous drone.

The drone will be the first fully integrated with the Galileo navigation system, profiting from the authentication service and precise navigation solution. The motivation of the presented concept takes its origin directly from the user perspective and expectations, where the flexibility, reliability, world-wide coverage are among the most mentioned. Completing for interfacing with an end-user, the system will also include a server-based application connected to the drone with features like planning and management of the drone mission and navigation. An important part of the system is a mobile, as a direct application for the end-user, mission launch and control tool.

HUUVER is going to be a drone that fills the lacks of current UAV solutions. The construction of a drone connects advantages of both, flying and driving, machines. What does it mean? The capability of almost all-terrain movements like flying, perching, driving, climbing, vertical take-off and landing. It will be constructed to perform professional missions in various, difficult conditions. The ability of ground-based movements will allow for reaching the areas unavailable from the air.
