Project name: Twinning coordination action for spreading excellence in Aerial Robotics
Project acronym: AeRoTwin
Dates: 01.09.2018 - 28.02.2022
Total budget: 997,897.50 EUR
Funding: EU Horizon 2020, CSA - Coordination and support action
Grant Agreement number: 810321

AeRoTwin is an EU H2020 Twinning project coordinated by the Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems - LARICS from the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (UNIZG-FER).

The overarching goal of AeRoTwin is to decrease networking gaps and deficiencies between UNIZG-FER and internationally leading counterparts in EU, by significantly enhancing the S&T capacity of LARICS at UNIZG-FER in the field of aerial robotics. Through carefully planned twinning actions, AeRoTwin will raise the UNIZG-FER research profile, as well as the research profile of its personnel.

UNIZG‐FER will through AeRoTwin enhance its networking capacity and scientific visibility; improve the quality of innovation management and technology transfer; and also increase its research excellence and innovation capacity in the field of aerial robotics, in the following Strategic Research Domains (SRDs):

  1. Cooperative robotic missions
  2. Aerial robot navigation
  3. Aerial robot configurability




  1. University of Seville (USE), Spain
  2. Imperial College London, UK
  3. Technological Corporation of Andalusia, Spain

Dronedays spark interest from the...

After seeing our work through Dronedays and AeRoTwin activities, we were invited by several companies to investigate the posibilities of future collaboration.

We were first invited by Koncar and Atos Hrvatska to the Pometeno Brdo windfarm on 2 July 2019 to demonstrate the capabilities of our UAVs in wind turbine inspection tasks. With supervision from Jurica Goričanec from Geoarheo, our Kopterworx UAV performed all planned tasks and results we obtained are looking promising for a future collaboration. We were also invited by Geodetski zavod Rijeka to the Grobnik airport on 9 July 2019 to showcase 3D mapping and georeferecing capabilities of our UAV. Gathered data is still being processed, but we hope it will facilitate interesting future collaborations.
