TiHAN (Technology Innovation Hub on Autonomous Navigations) at IITH focuses on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) for a wide range of applications.
In Nano/Micro category drones, Bio-Inspired drones like Quad-wing UAV (Dragonfly based) and Flapping Wing Micro Aerial Vehicles (Aerial Birds based), Nano drone swarms are being developed at TiHAN. In Medium/Large category drones, TiHAN is focusing on developing solutions for next generation urban air mobility – air taxis, air metros, air ambulances etc. As a means of solving traffic congestion in the downtown of large cities.
ADAS features are built into passenger vehicles, campus shuttles, and bicycles (for last-mile connectivity). ADAS features include pedestrian detection, emergency braking, LDWS, LKA. Used test scenario of ADAS function assessment in the SIL framework for an Indian setting. GPS-based autonomous navigation for DbW-enabled vehicles using waypoints. Algorithms for obstacle avoidance and path planning are being developed.
