The Research Days are an annual workshop focussing on the core competence of Lakeside Labs: self-organizing networked systems.

The annual workshop of Lakeside Labs and Alpen-Adria-Universität. For the 6th time, we hosted international experts, local professors, and young researchers to discuss ideas and exchange experiences. The event is organized as a workshop, where invited talks from experts and targeted discussions took place between 8-12 July, 2013.

This year's Research Days where focused on Multi-UAV Systems. Autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are used with increasing interest in civil and commercial applications and by the scientific research community. Recently, research and development efforts have shifted toward using teams of UAVs for monitoring, surveillance, or disaster assistance, to name a few applications. However, the design principles of such a multi-UAV system still need intensive investigations. Ideally, a multi-UAV system is robust, adaptive, resource-efficient, scalable, cooperative, supportive of heterogeneity, and last but not least, self-organizing to realize its full potential. To achieve these properties, the physical control of individual robots, their sensor data analysis, navigation, and communication capabilities need to be integrated, which naturally brings together experts from many disciplines such as robotics, networking, and swarm intelligence.

Research Days 2013 included projects and research aiming at the following key topics

  • coordination of aerial robots (e.g. movement and task execution)
  • mission planning
  • wireless networking (e.g. robust multimedia streaming)
  • aerial imaging with person detection and 3D reconstruction
  • application in real-world disaster management
