2021 IFAC Workshop on Aerospace Control Education

The IFAC Technical Committee on Aerospace approved the proposal by M. Lovera (ASCL Coordinator) and Paolo Castaldi (Università di Bologna) to organise in Milano (Bovisa Campus of Politecnico) in 2021 the first IFAC Workshop on Aerospace Control Education.

The primary goal of this workshop is to increase the awareness and knowledge of aerospace control educators about the current trends and technologies applied in modern aerospace control engineering education at different levels of degrees, Ph.D. included. Furthermore, the ways in which the aviation and aerospace community influences the educational process, as well as the effects that education has on the industry, it is another of the primary purposes of the workshop.

Leonardo drone contest

Leonardo announced on June 21 the Drone contest, in the framework of which six Italian Universities (Università di Roma Tor Vergata, Politecnico di Torino, Politecnico di Milano, Università di Bologna, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna di Pisa, Università di Napoli Federico II) will compete in the development of technologies for autonomous drones. The PoliMI team will be formed by the ASCL and the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Lab of DEIB.

Drone technologies: challenges and opportunities

In recent years Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPAs), which in the past had been of interest only for military applications, have started to play a significant role in civil applications as well, ranging from personal and commercial use to countless industrial fields.
In the framework of civil applications, multirotor RPAs represent the most common architecture, due to their versatility and reliability. As a consequence, scientific and industrial activities related to multirotor RPAs have become more and more widespread.

In this talk on 28/2/19 Marco Lovera (ASCL) and Paolo Marras (Aermatica 3D) provided an overview of the state of the art and of the foreseeable trends, both from an academic and an industrial perspective. Download the presentation here.


Kick-off Osservatorio Droni: 22 marzo 2019

Il Dipartimento di Scienze e Tecnologie Aerospaziali e la School of Management del Politecnico di Milano hanno il piacere di comunicare che sta per partire la prima edizione dell’Osservatorio Droni che si propone come punto di riferimento a livello nazionale per lo studio e monitoraggio del settore degli UAS.

 Il Workshop di Kick-off, aperto a tutti previa iscrizione e non vincolante, si terrà venerdì 22 Marzo dalle 9:30 alle 13:00 presso la Sala Consiglio del Dipartimento di Scienze e Tecnologie Aerospaziali, Via La Masa 34 (Edificio B12 Campus Milano Bovisa Politecnico). Per iscriversi cliccare su questo link.

A seguire si terrà un light lunch di networking presso il laboratorio FlyART dell'Aerospace Systems & Control Laboratory, in cui verranno svolte alcune demo per i partecipanti.

Per ulteriori informazioni a riguardo, qui è disponibile il documento che descrive l’Edizione 2019 della Ricerca e che riporta i temi cardine, nonché le modalità di collaborazione con il nostro Osservatorio.

Fly-ART has a new home!

From mid-July 2018 Fy-ART has moved to a new location, in building B13 of the Bovisa campus.

Here is a picture of the new setup, which includes a 12 m x 6 m flight space:
