ATLAS (Air Traffic Laboratory for Advanced Unmanned Systems) is a Test Flight Centre located in Villacarrillo (Jaen) which offers the international aerospace community an aerodrome equipped with excellent technological-scientific facilities and airspace ideally suited to the development of experimental flights with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAS/RPAS). The ATLAS Centre holds the first facilities in Spain exclusively dedicated to testing light and tactical Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems RPAS.
A commercial 4×4 gasoline Bobcat 2200 vehicle. Modified to remotely control speed and turn. It has a 2D lidar installed and, thanks to the big size of the system, no weight restriction for the payload. It can operate in any kind of environment.
Self-designed hexacopter, designed for being able to accomplish a variety of tasks. It can be controlled with two different types of autopilots: Pixhawk (Px4) and Naza V3. It can carry up to 8kg of payload, including robotic arms. It is also foldable.
Comercial DJI hexacopter. Much smaller than the others, it can only carry GPS and little cameras. The autopilot is a Pixhawk (Px4) and it is programmed with ROS/Ubuntu.
DJI Matrice 600
The Matrice 600 (M600) is a flying platform designed for professional aerial photography and industrial applications. It is built to closely integrate with a host of powerful DJI technologies, including the A3 flight controller, Lightbridge 2 transmission system, Intelligent Batteries and Battery Management system, for maximum performance and quick setup. This excellent features make it capable of use self-designed robotic arms as payload.
Self-designed hexarotor, controlled with a Pixhawk (Px4) autopilot. An intel Nuc (I5) is also embedded for more computational capability. It works with ROS and it can be simulated with Gazebo. Payload includes among others: laser sensors, GPS, stereo camera and an electromagnet. Self-designed robotics arms are also used in this platform. This provides a multitask aerial robot.
The PIONEER 3-AT is a highly versatile four-wheel drive robotic platform. Powerful, easy to use reliable, flexible, P3-AT is a popular team performer for outdoor or rough-terrain projects. It offers an embedded computer option, opening the way for onboard vision processing, Ethernet-based communications, laser, DGPS, and other autonomous functions. It is controlled with ROS/Ubuntu using a laptop.
A commercial fixed wing drone specially designed for FPV flights. It offers a lot of space inside the body for FPV equipment and cameras. It is compatible with most of the camera supports models. A perfect system for FPV flights and video recording. It can also carry a lot of payload compared with other models of the same weight.
Two commercial RX-90 robotic arms. They can cooperate with each other to do different tasks. Controlled with Ubuntu/ROS thanks to self-designed programs.
First person view system, thought-out for training UAV pilots. If offers a great manoeuvrability. This is a four-channel model featuring rudder, elevator, ailerons and ESC motor control. The model can be used as a first trainer thanks to its forgiving nature and stability, it’s also super durable due to the EPOFLEXY material it’s made from.
Features a strong foam body internally reinforced with carbon fibre, parachute recovery and belly landing available, 24 megapixel camera with many other sensor options, automatic lens cover door, easy hand-launch, 5 minutes setup time, 2 hours of endurance, easy to transport and +30km link range. It is controlled with a pixhawk autopilot ¡ with an embedded Odroid, but it also has a Raspberry on board. The camera is a Xiaomi Yi Cenital.
Self-designed octocopter controlled by a pixhawk autopilot with an Intel Nuc (I5) for extra computational capabilities. It also has a Jexton TX1 GPU and a velodyne 3D laser as extra payload. It is designed for accomplish different task, using different types of sensors, like stereo cameras, laser sensors, GPS, altimeters, etc.
Vicon Indoor Testbed
Indoor testbed for the assessment and validation of air traffic automation techniques and multivehicle systems (both coordination and cooperation). This testbed is based on an indoor positioning system that uses 20 VICON cameras. This system can calculate the position and attitude of any moving object within the volume of the testbed (15x15x5 m) in real time (with an update rate of up to 500 Hz). CATEC has 10 light unmanned quadrotors that can be used to emulate the trajectory of any type of aircraft. These rotorcrafts can carry up to 500 g of payload. In addition, CATEC has 4 coaxial quadrotors with significantly higher payload capacity up to 2 kg which are used to test aerial manipulation techniques. Finally, the testbed is integrated with a software development environment which allows the simulation of the algorithms before they are tested in within the testbed.
Dear TERRINet applicants and future users,
we sincerely hope that you are staying safe in these challenging times that we are facing at the moment. The current emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply changed our lives. The recent and progressive lock-down forced us to reorganize our working routines in smart working modalities and to shut down the TERRINet infrastructures. Therefore, we regret to inform you that Trans-National Access has been suspended until further notice.
However, we would like to reassure you that we will keep evaluating the proposals submitted for Trans-National Access regularly. Indeed, despite access cannot be allowed for a while, the selected users will be queued and access will take over gradually as soon as the situation will allow it. We also inform you that a special application mechanism has been settled in TERRINet to mitigate the delays that will occur due to the COVID-19.
The Open Call no. 4 is currently open: we are accepting proposals under the new mechanism called "first come, first served". Proposals are directly forwarded to the evaluation panel as soon as they are submitted. Proposals submitted closer to the deadline will be dispatched after that. The deadline for the Open Call n.4 will be on May 31, 2020.
Do not hesitate! Get this unique opportunity to be granted with fully-covered access (including travel and accommodation costs) to 15 leading European robotics labs and 100+ best robotic platforms and to get in touch with leading robotic experts.
For any additional questions, please, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's take this time of the world calming down to plan our future.
