„Monitoring an Industrial Park Using UAS“

The abbreviation “ITS” stands for Intelligent Transport Systems and Services. This year, innovations from the fields of transport, logistics and digitalisation will be presented at the27th ITS World Congress. From October 11 to 15 2021, experts will meet at the world’s largest event for innovative mobility, logistics and IT solutions in the Hanseatic city of Hamburg. Around 400 trade exhibitors from 130 countries will be guests, presenting the latest findings, trends and concepts in the trade exhibition, at lectures and in live demonstrations. Under the motto Experience Future Mobility Now, the mobility of tomorrow will thus be brought to life at the ITS World Congress.

Autonomous driving, intelligent infrastructure and innovative mobility concepts – these are the topics that the TITUS Research team deals with in its daily research work with a great deal of enthusiasm and scientific know-how. TITUS responded to the ITS “Call for Contribution” at the beginning of the year and submitted a research paper on the topic of “Monitoring an Industrial Park Using UAS”. With success! The paper was accepted by the congress organisers and qualified for a presentation in the following session:

The TITUS Research team has done a great job:

  • Dr. Katharina Kolo, Research Associate, Optimisation of Dynamic and Discrete Systems, has developed route optimisation methods based on research results from Software Developer,
  • Daniel Karasinski, and submitted the paper together with
  • Michael Reich, Head of Department Infrastructures and System Management, and
  • Professor Dr. Uwe Meinberg, CEO of TITUS Research GmbH. The paper deals with the determination of optimal (flight) routes of autonomously operating drones (UAS, Unmanned Aerial Systems) for the efficient inspection of industrial parks.

The research paper ties in with a project by TITUS that uses model-like but applicable simulations to show possibilities for integrating drones into the processes for surveillance and monitoring at industrial and commercial sites in Lusatia (“Schwarze Pumpe”). The project was supported by the district of Spree-Neiße / Wokrejs Sprjewja Nysa and the Wirtschaftsregion Lausitz GmbH (WRL) within the federal model project “Unternehmen Revier”. The “Unternehmen Revier” model project is an established funding programme of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) to support Germany’s lignite regions undergoing structural change. TITUS Research’s project partners were ASG Spremberg GmbH as industrial park manager and LEAG as a major operator of facilities on its site.
