University of Seville

Role in SIMAR Project

USE will participate in all Work Packages of the project, but mainly in:

  • WP2 “SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS AND DESIGN”, leading Task 2.3 “System architecture design” using their extensive experience on complex robotic systems (aerial and ground), and
  • WP3 “MULTIPURPOSE MODULAR INSPECTION ROBOT”, leading this WP, the development of the aerial robot, and the autonomous robotic functionalities through Task 3.1 “Advanced aerial robotic inspection vehicle” and Task 3.3 “Autonomous robotics functionalities and teleoperations in complex environments”.

Also, in WP7 “EXPLOITATION, COMMUNICATION, AND DISSEMINATION”, USE will coordinate the dissemination and communications activities.

Relevant previous experience

In addition of SIMAR, the GRVC is working on the European Research Council Advanced Grant GRIFFIN, developing a new generation of bio-inspired aerial manipulators, combining flapping and fixed wing capabilities with autonomous perching and manipulation. Moreover, has led AEROARMS, dealing with the application of aerial manipulation to inspection and maintenance of oil and gas plants, is leading AERIAL-CORE developing new aerial robotic technologies based on AI, and participates in many H2020 projects such as HYFLIERS, where hybrid (aerial and ground) robots for industrial inspection and maintenance are being applied, RESIST applying aerial robotic technologies to the inspection of tunnels and bridges, AEROTRAIN on aerial robotics for infrastructure and asset maintenance, TERRINET on robotic infrastructures, AEROTWIN on aerial robotics cooperation, the RIMA Digital Innovation Hub on robotic inspection and maintenance, and others.
