We propose a cooperative research project aimed at designing and prototyping a new generation of personal flying robotic platform controlled by movements of the human body using a symbiotic human-robot-flight machine interaction. Motors with ducted fun propulsion and power supply, and a VSLAM system will be integrated in the final flight machine with short and vertical takeoff and landing capability and composite (or light alloy) airframe structure for low speed and low altitude flight. In the project, we will also develop a flight simulator to test the interaction between the flying machine and the human body movements. In this first step, for human safety, the flying machine will be controlled by an autopilot colligated in a closed-loop control with the simulator.

Abstract

We propose a cooperative research project aimed at designing and prototyping a new generation of personal flying robotic platform controlled by movements of the human body using a symbiotic human-robot-flight machine interaction. Motors with ducted fun propulsion and power supply, and a VSLAM system will be integrated in the final flight machine with short and vertical takeoff and landing capability and composite (or light alloy) airframe structure for low speed and low altitude flight. In the project, we will also develop a flight simulator to test the interaction between the flying machine and the human body movements. In this first step, for human safety, the flying machine will be controlled by an autopilot colligated in a closed-loop control with the simulator.
