Quality Assurance and Safety Tools for Emerging Drone Technologies

Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) designs and operates high performance Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems (RPAS) to deliver payloads between depots and warehouses. Safety and quality assurance (QA) play an integral role in assuring that drone technology is accepted by the public, consumers, and the Canadian government. The demand for more advanced testing on both the drone hardware and software must be thoroughly carried out to achieve such acceptance. The proposed research project focuses on meeting this demand by investigating both the physical safety and control system quality of the drone. This project will investigate the use of a drone parachute recovery system (PRS) used in the event of in-flight failure of the drone as well as new QA tools to improve the reliability and safety of drones at the manufacturing stage.
