What is it about?
Autoport is a student project of the University of Padua whose goal is to design, build and test a system for autonomous docking of UAVs on a ground station. The main elements consist of a relative proximity navigation suite, a docking mechanism and a power/data exchange device, which are integrated to collaborate with each other to provide the needed accuracy and reliability.
Why is it important?
Autoport suite is a fundamental building block for future planetary exploration drones that require fast recharging and data exchange.
