Description


What does the future hold for unmanned aircraft systems?

Drones - also known as Unmanned Aircraft - are capturing the imagination of many people with their widespread application. For others, they are a serious threat to airspace management and privacy. While it is clear that this technology is here to stay, important questions are waiting to be answered.

Come join us at Hong Kong Polytechnic University for a presentation by the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) where the Centre for Aviation is working on answering some of these important questions.

Following the presentation, a panel of experts moderated by Prof. Henri Hié from Hong Kong Polytechnic University will discuss the future of unmanned aviation: Applications (aerial inspection, search and rescue, cargo transport, precision farming etc.), Safe integration into the existing airspace system, Education and training of aviation personnel

Participants from ZHAW are:

Christoph Regli, ZHAW Programme Director Aviation. M.Sc. Computer Science ETHZ, Airline Transport Pilot and Swiss Airforce Drone Pilot.

Dr. Peter M. Lenhart, Senior Lecturer and Head of Human Factors Engineering at the ZHAW Centre for Aviation. Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering, private pilot. His research interests include Human Drone Interaction and Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Systems.

After the panel discussion, ZHAW will demonstrate how the use of an Augmented Reality Head-Mounted Display (AR-HMD) can facilitate piloting manned and unmanned aircraft. Visitors will have the chance to wear the HMD, thus getting a firsthand impression of this fascinating new technology. This demonstration will also be hosted in the FestivalHub in TImes Square 26. – 28. October all day.

Presented by ZHAW in Partnership with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University


無人駕駛飛機系統的未來發展如何?

無人機(即無人駕駛飛機)結集了不同人廣泛應用的想像力。對其他人而言,無人機卻為空域管理和私隱帶來嚴重威脅。儘管此技術顯然存在,重大問題仍未解決。

請參加由蘇黎世應用科技大學(ZHAW)在香港理大舉行的講解。ZHAW航空中心團隊正努力尋找部分重大問題的解決方案。

講解之後,由香港理工大學Henri Hié教授主持的專家小組將討論無人駕駛飛機的未來發展:應用(航空檢查、搜救、貨物運輸、精準農業等)、與現有航空系統安全接軌、航空人員教育及培訓。

來自ZHAW的參與者包括:

Christoph Regli(ZHAW航空課程總監,持蘇黎世聯邦理工學院(ETHZ)電腦科學理學碩士學位,為民航運輸駕駛員及瑞士空軍無人機駕駛員)。

Dr. Peter M. Lenhart 教授(ZHAW航空中心高級講師及人因工程主管,持航天工程學博士學位,為私人飛行員)。他的研究興趣包括人類無人機相互作用和遙控飛行器系統。

小組討論後,ZHAW將會示範擴增實境頭戴式顯示器(AR-HMD)如何方便駕駛有人及無人駕駛飛機。參觀者有機會試戴頭戴式顯示器,親身了解這令人著迷的新技術。示範亦將於10月26至28日在活動中心全日進行。

由ZHAW與香港理工大學合作舉辦
