URANUS: Real-Time Urban Mobility Management via Intelligent UAV-based Sensing

URANUS proposes real-time, dynamic, and intelligent sensing of vehicular and pedestrian traffic via Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and the use of the collected information for urban mobility management. In this context, a holistic framework for real-time urban mobility monitoring and control, as well as UAV operational planning, is proposed.

The solutions and tools to be developed can lead to step-change improvements in urban mobility with prominent environmental and socioeconomic benefits. URANUS is expected to transform our understanding of joint optimization of sensing, monitoring, and control not only in intelligent transportation systems but also in other UAV-centric fields.

The ERC Consolidator Grant for the research project “URANUS” was awarded to Associate Professor Stelios Timotheou.

The URANUS project receives funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme Grant agreement No. 101088124.
