    ARCAS 4th year

    Published on Feb 2, 2016

    During the 4th and last year of the project, R&D activities have been focused in the indoor integrated experiment with:
    - RO-SLAM localization,
    - Kinodynamic aerial manipulator motion planning using a directed bi-RRT algorithm
    - Priority-based behavioral control including field of view, distance manipulator-observer and obstacle avoidance tasks
    - Motion planning initialization and Optimal Reciprocal Collision Avoidance
    - Trajectories calculation using a centralized quasi-static approach
    - Multivehicle navigation of the planned trajectories including field of view and obstacle avoidance
    - Hybrid Visual SWervoing with Hierarchical Task Composition using a multilayer low level controller
    - Two aerial manipulators perform a cooperative grasping, transportation and deployment of a long rigid bar
    - Cooperative transportation of the long bar following a trajectory that avoids the obstacle

    Regarding the outdoor experiments, these are the main characteristics:
    - RO-SLAM
    - RO-SLAM and GPS approach and grasping with aerial robotic manipulator based on multi-rotor with 7 DoF arm
    - Visual Servoing Grasping with the Flettner helicopter and LWR 7 DoF arm
    - Manipulator compensating ground effect
    - Increase altitude with the compensation of the load weight and transport to the point of interest
    - Detach the service robot
