INGENIOUS Conference Paper published – “Micro And Macro Quadcopter Drones For Indoor Mapping To Support Disaster Management”
The INGENIOUS Conference Paper titled “Micro And Macro Quadcopter Drones For Indoor Mapping to Support Disaster Management” was published in the ISPRS Annals of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences as part of the ISPRS Congress 2022 on May 17, 2022.
One of the technical objectives of INGENIOUS is to develop an autonomous drone for unsupervised exploration and assessment of high-risk environments. This Multi-purpose Autonomous eXploring drone – MAX – navigates by itself in combined indoor and outdoor spaces and scouts the environment, acting as an “extra teammate” for first responders.

A novel testing, training and experimentation programme of 27 Laboratory Integration and Testing sessions (LITs), 18 Small Scale Field Tests (SSTs) and 2 Full Scale Field Validation Exercises (FSXs) will be realised within the lifecycle of the project. Technical partners and end users will follow closely the laboratory testing activities, realise field tests of the initial versions of functional prototypes towards benchmarking and ultimately operate the Toolkit as a whole in two large field validation activities to be held in M34 and M41 of the project.
The design and prototyping of several smart flying and ground devices have been performed in the first year of Ingenious. One of the INGENIOUS main aims is to provide first responders with new instruments to enable improved scene perception, indoor/outdoor mapping, accurate self-localization in indoor environments, as well as data communication with other devices. For this purpose INGENIOUS partners from SINTEF, FOI and DLR are developing three drones (MIN, MAX and MACS) and a self-localization tool (IPS). All these devices are connected with the field communication system.
