With MultiDrone, the Innovation Team of Deutsche Welle is entering a new Horizon2020 research project, that is going to explore the possibilities of using multiple drones for media production processes and advanced drone cinematography.
The research team consists of a total of nine research institutes, media partners, and technology providers from across Europe. The main focus of the three-year project will be on decisional autonomy as well as increasing safety and robustness of a swarm of drones. This includes localization and tracking, ‘cinematographic intelligence’ and visual effects while filming. The project will also take a closer look at soft limitations like ethical and legal restrictions for working with multiple drones.
Deutsche Welle's Innovation team will support the project through requirements gathering and system evaluation. It will also lead the dissemination activities, ensuring a broad coverage of the project's work on its website and through its social channels.
