    group focuses its research effort in two key areas Localization of people in indoor areas with RF and inertial sensors We work in Local Positioning Systems LPS capable of locating tracking and guiding people in indoor environments where GPS devices are not operative We do so by combining RF technology like RFID or UWB and foot mounted inertial measurement units IMUs with pedestrian dead reckoning techniques or Bayesian state estimation Current applications of this type of system are in the Monitoring and Guidance of persons moving in large multi storey buildings in Emergency First Responders or Security applications in providing Location awareness in Ambient Assistive Living AAL applications and any other Location Based Service that requires to go beyond the limited GPS availability High accuracy 3D positioning with ultrasonic technology We use ultrasound for high accuracy 3D positioning in small areas by using multilateration techniques with the times of flight of ultrasonic signals propagating from a set of beacons to a mobile node For accurate range estimation in multi user environments the ultrasonic signals are digitally modulated and encoded with the orthogonal codes used in CDMA communication systems essentially incorporating the GPS design into an ultrasonic system Our ultrasonic positioning

    and other obstacles The present work aims to develop an adaptable middle level controller that will allow the rapid development of task level controllers Thus enabling the employment of multirotors in applications such as inspection tasks in construction sites The mayor goal of this work is the enhancement of the user experience thanks to autonomous safe navigation near points of interest so that the user can comfortably handle the UAV from a ground station focusing his attention in the inspection task A mayor milestone for the accomplishment of this work is the design of a methodology for the fast identification and implementation of position estimators Two important objectives are the estimation of wind disturbances and the development of a software architecture that easily permits the addition of sensors or other kind of position measurements for example coming from multiple vision localization techniques This work is also focused in obtaining two multicopter dynamic models a simplified model that can be implemented onboard the UAV and a complex model enabling the controller prototyping and design in simulation environments such as Simulink Regarding the latter an effort is being done in the assessment of meaningful model uncertainties and measurement noise models that permit
