UAS Denmark test centre and HCA Airport are working together as part a new regional Danish lighthouse project within drones and robotics. The new NextGen Robotics entity aims to develop the next generation of robots and autonomous technology and includes more than 65 partners and a budget exceeding DKK 200 million, says a press release.
The airport supports new improved test infrastructure and high-tech test equipment to pave the way for faster development and more advanced demonstration projects, where the technology must be compression tested under harsher conditions and for more purposes than previously.
Among the companies, there is great support for the Funen robot developments. More than 50 companies either support or are partners in the consortium, including the University of Southern Denmark, Naviair, Quadsat and Lorenz Technology – all of which are involved on the drone front. In addition to these partners, UAS Denmark Test Center has also received statements of support from 20 public and private organisations.
Funen aims to become a global epicentre for the testing and development of the high-tech industry of the future. The partners and the four sub-consortia behind NextGen Robotics have just registered an application to the Danish Agency for Trade and Industry.
