Fail-Safe Mechanisms for Remote-Controlled Micro Aerial Vehicles (MEVs) (L)

Status: Abgeschlossen

A lot of research has already been done in the area of robots and autonomous systems. Still, there are a lot of challenges for autonomous systems, e.g., in the area of localization or sensing, which is why most of the systems can only be operated in controlled environments or lab settings.

This thesis deals with the problem of implementing fail-safe methods for remotely controlled micro aerial vehicles (MEVs), which include the detection of undesired behavior and a pre-defined reaction to this situations. An undesired scenario could be, for instance, a denial-of-service (DoS) attack, which prevents the remote control from successfully submitting control commands to the MEV. Even an emergency landing command could be denied by the attack, which makes it necessary for the MEV, to autonomously detect such an attack and initiate an emergency program by its own.

Required skills: Experience in C/C++ programming
