MORUS Demo at BTS2016 (Biograd na...

Another MORUS activity took place at the Breaking the Surface 2016 Workshop. For the first time, the fully assembled unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developed within MORUS project was demonstrated by Prof. Stjepan Bogdan, Assist. Prof. Matko Orsag and Tomislav Haus from LARICS. The MORUS UAV presents a novel concept in the design of a large-scale multirotor aerial vehicle, bringing together internal combustion engines (ICEs) and new attitude control concept based on shifting the vehicle’s center of gravity. Within the demo, MORUS researchers presented the mechanical construction of the vehicle, made mostly of carbon fibers, and the moving mass control concept. In addition, they prepared a simulator which allowed the guests the operate the UAV equipped with four ICEs and moving masses. The unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV), which is used within the MORUS project, was also exhibited next to the UAV. The demo has drawn significant attention from the Workshop attendees, attracting more than 50 researchers.
