Seminar - Conceptual Study on Traffic Management of Multiple-Drone Operations in Urban Environments by Dr. Low, Kin Huat
日期:2018 年 05 月 28 日 ( 星期一)
Time:2:30 pm – 3:30 pm


In view of growing interests and applications of drone operations in service, commercial and other application, this talk will present some key concepts of managing the urban airspace in an adaptive manner (better known as Adaptive Urban Airspace Management) enabling large scale unmanned aircraft (UA) operations in future. The background and motivation of the study will first be discussed. A modular framework on the traffic management on unmanned aircraft systems (TM-UAS) will be presented by going through the key modules. The modules include urban airspace management, flight management, risk modelling and assessment. Essential enabling technologies to ensure the safe and efficient drone operations will also be presented and discussed. The framework together with the concept of operations (ConOps) has been presented at DRONE ENABLE, the first ICAO's Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Industry Symposium, held in Montreal, Canada in September 2017. The progress and future works of the urban traffic management of unmanned aircraft systems will also be discussed at the end of talk.


Dr. Kin Huat Low (K. H. Low) is currently a professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Dr. Low obtained his BSc degree from the National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan, his MSc and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada. His teaching and research interests include robotics, vibrations, impact analysis, unmanned aerial vehicles, and machine and mechanism design. Kin Huat is the principal investigator of TM-UAS programme, which is concerning the UAS traffic management and concepts of urban drone operations.
