  1. 1. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group (ASRG) • Background • Scope • Goals • Plans • Flight Operations Group • Flying field • OSU Fleet
  2. 2. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) Span of Program • Anything involving the use of autonomy • Marine, terrestrial, airborne • Robotics • Remote sensors and algorithms • Initial focus will be airborne systems • Others don’t have big legal and liability issues • Focus will broaden (and can at any time)
  3. 3. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) A Short History • Development of individual programs in robotics marine AUVs, airborne systems, remote sensing • Proposal for FAA test site, 2012-3 (successful) • First COAs and official research flights (Wing group) • Summer, 2014, first scoping meeting at OSU • Official formation of ASRG, Nov, 2014 • FAA Center of Excellence selection, 2015
  4. 4. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) ~8 knot winds, 05/24/15 DJI Phantom V2P, Netherlands
  5. 5. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) ASRG Goals  Foster coherence and collaborations within OSU and with government and industry  Support Oregon’s FAA test site designation, as appropriate  Facilitate safe and legal flight at OSU  Foster OSU research opportunities across all aspects of autonomous system and robotics.
  6. 6. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) Official Structure (to date) • Initial Steering committee: • Rob Holman and Ann Schmierer, co-chairs • Michael Wing, Forestry • John Talbott, Ag • Roberto Albertani, Eng. • Geoff Hollinger, Eng. • Housed officially in Research Office • Mark Peters operational lead • Advisor • Brian Whiteside, VDOS
  7. 7. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) ASRG Plans: http://research.oregonstate.edu/unmanned-systems-initiative
  8. 8. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) OSU Flight Operations Group • Provide rentable flight services to OSU • Acquire and maintain core fleet • Establish and maintain safe flight procedures • Create and operate training program • Establish and maintain certification procedures for pilots and aircraft. Near The Hague, The Netherlands Goals:
  9. 9. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) OSU Flight Operations Group • Director and associate director • Steering committee • Flight director • Test field director • OSU fleet director • Pilot and aircraft standards director • Compliance director • Training director • Communications head Near The Hague, The Netherlands Strawman Organization:
  10. 10. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) An OSU Flying Field • Home for OSU flight training, development and certification • On OSU property, “near” campus • Local natural and manmade calibrated target fields • Fixed and rotary wing (possible netted flying area) • One to two year timeline, will need interim solution
  11. 11. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) An OSU Fleet • Rotary and fixed wing, determined by flight operations group. • Entry level, low cost • For training and operations • Rentable (with pilots?) for research purposes.
  12. 12. Oregon State University OSU Autonomous Systems Research Group: (ASRG) Education and Training • Goal is to develop academic program • Aeronautical Engineering • remote sensing and signal processing • Applications to forestry, Ag, Oceanography, … • Robotics • …
