ADARS (2021-2024) - FNR CORE

The ADARS (Automating the Design of Autonomous Robot Swarms) project aims to propose a unique approach to automatically generate behaviours for distributed aerospace and space systems (DASS) thanks to a cross-fertilisation between multi-objective optimisation and machine learning techniques. ADARS will demonstrate through specifically designed software simulations and real field tests with multi-rotor drones, that state-of-the-art results can be obtained on two challenging DASS applications: swarm formation for a counter UAV system and swarm formation of small satellites for asteroid observation. Role: PI.

Technical Standardisation for Trustworthy ICT, Aerospace, and Construction (2021 - 2024) - ILNAS/UL

The proposed follow-up ILNAS-SnT research programme 2021-2024 is consciously sector-oriented and targets three highly relevant growth sectors for Luxembourg’s economy, in conformity with the national technical standardization strategy 2020-2030, that will deepen data and AI capabilities and enable a steady potential for innovation. The three sectors are a) ICT, b) Aerospace, and c) Construction. The economic power for these three domains is strongly determined by normative values notably related to trustworthiness, security, and privacy. Consequently, policies, regulations, and standards are required to be established to enhance trust in each particular domain-specific ecosystem
