We are proud to present the HUUVER – our new hybrid drone that flies and rides
A consortium of 7 partners from the EU – with Dronehub as a leader – has successfully completed the concept of hybrid UAV-UGV drone – the HUUVER. Our drone combines the most useful and necessary features of a flying drone with a riding drone.
“The HUUVER project is the next step in the development of drone technology and showing its unlimited possibilities. Our drone combines features of a flying drone with a ride-on drone, and the transition between modes is basically in a continuous motion. Thanks to the combination of knowledge and experience of 7 partners, such an advanced technological hybrid drone was created” – says Jakub Węglarz, project manager from Dronehub, which was the leader of the project.
Our drone has the capability of almost all-terrain movements like flying, perching, driving, climbing, vertical take-off and landing. It is constructed to perform professional missions in various, difficult conditions – making it a great tool in search and rescue or patrol missions. The ability of ground-based movements allows HUUVER for reaching the areas unavailable from the air.
HUUVER is an international project developed by seven entities from five EU member states:
- Dronehub (Poland),
- RECTANGLE (Poland),
- LUT University (Finland),
- NTT Data Spain, former Everis Aerospace & Defense (Spain),
- GINA Software (Czech Republic),
- BLADESCAPE (Austria)
- Brimatech Services (Austria).
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (European GNSS Agency). At the turn of January and February, the project was successfully presented and officially completed.
