  • NCHU Annual International Forum on Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Application
As the rapid development of AI generation, the topic of Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UVA) has also emerged to the hot topic in recent years! This hot topic started from the campus! For example, how do we choose a related UAV course linked with the world? How do we apply the creativity of UAV to capture some of the lucrative market? How do we help the related industry to transform to next stage?

The "International Forum on Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Application" was held in National Chung Hsing University on 27th -28th, March 2019, hosted by distinguished professor Ming-De, Yang of Department of Civil Engineering. The invited guests of the opening remark included 1) Mr. Chen, Ming-Huang, the commissioner of Central Taiwan Science Park, 2) Prof. Fuh-Sheng Shieu, president of National Chung Hsing University,  3) Prof. Chou, Chi-Chung, the Chief of NCHU Research and Development,  4) Prof. Chia-Feng Lin, the Chief of General Center for Academia-Industry Collaboration, , 5) Prof. Yong-Kai Lin, the COO of NCHU GLORIA, and 6) Dr. Zheng-Fang, Luo, the chairman of GEOSAT Aerospace & Technology Inc.,. At this event, GEOSAT Aerospace & Technology Inc. has presenting its technology of high maneuverability of the UVA to the participants by demonstrating in outside field.

The invited speakers of the event are the experts with their outstanding research and development result all over the world. Domestic experts include Prof. Ming-De, Yang, the distinguished professor of National Chung Hsing University and Dr. Jyi-shane Liu, the distinguished professor of National Cheng Chi University, and the chairman of GEOSAT Aerospace & Technology Inc., Dr. Zheng-Fang, Luo. Both of Dr. Ming-De, Yang and Dr. Jyi-shane Liu are the project managers of AI artificial intelligence and UVI of Ministry of Science and Technology.  GEOSAT Aerospace & Technology Inc. is a manufacturer of UVA. On the other hands, the foreign speakers were 1) Dr. Christopher C. Stewart, Professor of the Dept. Computer Science & Engineering of Ohio State University, and 2) Ms. Mariko Toda, the assistant researcher of the ThinkTron Ltd. Dr. Christopher C. Stewart shared the topic of Understanding Fully Autonomous Aerial Systems. And, Ms. Mariko Toda introduced the “UAV Applications and Regulation in Japan.”

On 28th, March, there were a practice workshop held by the assistance professor, Huiping Tsai, and thecourse was taught by Pro Christopher C. Stewart. This was the great opportunity to every participant. UAV have a variety of application in different field, from small parcel delivery, leisure and entertainment, extensive expansion of agricultural surveys, land protection monitoring, emergency relief. Especially in the field of UAV-assisted agriculture, the use could be to spray pesticides, crop growth monitoring and pest control, crop health and yield assessment, and crop damage investigation. NCHU professors have spent years on UVA related research. These all could strengthen multi-party cooperation and promote university-industrial cooperation.
