“Droneport is the ideal place to realize together new, fascinating industrial drone applications.”
Flanders Make is the strategic research centre for the manufacturing industry. From our sites all over Flanders, we stimulate open innovation through excellent research. As we bring together companies and research institutions, we help to realise concrete product and production innovations in mobile systems, in mechatronic engineering and in production environments. Our expertise is focused around 4 key competences, all based on modelling and virtualisation: decision making and control; design and optimization; motion products; and flexible assembly.
In several on-going projects we apply our knowledge on (indoor/outdoor) localization technology, visual context perception and autonomous navigation to support companies in the development of new drone applications. Some examples are the use of drones for logistics in production halls or for machine inspection. The state-of-the-art facilities within DronePort offer us the possibility to further extend our drone research activities and to work together with new companies in the drone community.
