Data from University of Sao Paulo Advance Knowledge in Robotics

June 23, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Robotics & Machine Learning -- Current study results on Robotics have been published. According to news reporting out of Sao Paulo, Brazil, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "The growing social and economic interest in new unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) applications demands that UASs operate beyond the segregated airspace they are currently able to fly. However, UAS operations in non-segregated airspace should be regulated by aeronautical authorities before UASs can share airspace with manned aircraft."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Sao Paulo, "It has been a challenge for regulatory authorities to define these regulations because they do not understand the topic well. In addition, there is no consensus in the academic community regarding UAS concepts, such as taxonomy and features. This study proposes guidelines that could support UAS regulations for the future integration of autonomous UASs into the Global Air Traffic Management System (GATM). These guidelines are based on three viewpoints: the aircraft, the piloting autonomous system (PAS) and the integration of autonomous UASs into non-segregated airspace."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "We recommend that the UAS concept should be based on genuine aeronautical precepts, which would be directly applied, without terminology or conceptual adaptations, for the integration of these aircraft into airspace according to the GATM paradigm."
