Thesis type SIMULATION AND DESIGN
Description Leonardo is involved in research activities related to UAVs through the newly established research laboratory network of Leonardo Labs. The main goal of the UxV/Unmanned Research Unit is the development, system integration and field testing of autonomous flight functionalities for rotary-wing UAVs (mini/micro size).
The goal of the team is twofold and tackles the design, development and test of:
● a fleet of UAVs for indoor, outdoor and outdoor-to-indoor missions in
● autonomous flight functions (e.g., target tracking, autonomous landing, multiple
UAVs tracking, formation/swarming control algorithms). These functions are propaedeutic to the functioning of the UAVs in the scenarios mentioned above and will be tested both in simulation and real-world scenarios.
This work requires several technical skills such as, but not limited to:
● Software: knowledge of C++/Python, Docker and ROS2, PX4 flight control stack,
robotic simulation environments (e.g., AirSim, Gazebo).
● Hardware: drone design, troubleshooting, functioning, and testing; CAD design and
3D printing; mechatronics prototyping; sensors testing (e.g., visible-spectrum camera, LiDAR).
