On the one hand, the speakers will talk about responsible research and innovation in the field of European creative industries, and, on the other, they will expose the results obtained from the AiRT project as an innovation success story in the creative industries sector. Hence, the workshop will be divided into two sessions, a plenary session and a demonstration session:


Plenary session

– Invited experts in drones and creative industries will present the main topics of interest and challenges related to drones and CIs
– The leaders of the different work packages of the three countries will present the main results of the AiRT project


Demonstration session

The second phase will consist of a demonstration of the AiRT system, inside the Principe Felipe Science Museum. In this way, the consortium will present the results of the AiRT project:

  • A new drone with its different components (gimbal, camera, passive protection, etc.)
  • The deployment of the new positioning system. The anchors will be positioned in a closed space and both the system itself and the auto-calibration process will be shown
  • The 3D mapping of the environment and the visualisation in the devices
  • The presentation of the graphical interface (including flight path programming)
  • Finally, the demonstration flight
