Improving Drone Flight Safety Through Machine Learning - Jonathan Pelham, IVHM Centre, Cranfield University

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The safe operation of drones(Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) requires a large base of knowledge about both the aircraft itself, the aircraft mission, the environment within which you operate and the support structures available to you. Hobbyists, owner operators, & small businesses are unable to take advantage of some of the benefits offered by SMS(Safety Management Systems) and FOQA(Flight operations Quality assurance) programs in use by large aerospace companies to improve safety, reduce operational cost, and improve through life health management. This study looks at the use of an artificial immune system to process flight data and provide analysis and a framework within which to interpret results to help operators improve their flying.
