Helen Schloh received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science at the University of Hamburg. Since August 2023, she has been working as a research associate in the research group Distributed Operating Systems (DOS) in the Department of Informatics at the University of Hamburg.
- Architectures, coordination principles, and simulations of drone swarm architectures
- Full area coverage, point of interest detection, and path planning with a focus on multi-drone systems
- Feasibility of drone-based solutions in real-world settings
The rise in production of cost-efficient unmanned aerial vehicles ("UAVs" or "drones") opens up new possibilities for process optimizations in industrial settings. The InteGreatDrones project focuses on the use of drone swarms for data collection in dynamic inland terminals, addressing challenges of changing cargo types and stakeholder interactions. The project's goal is to employ autonomous drones to capture terminal activities, ensuring privacy through local data processing and selective sharing. A central middleware connects drones and existing systems, supporting terminal-specific applications like route optimization and predictive maintenance. This project seeks to provide real-time data for informed operational and strategic decisions.
