    Jones Albuquerque, coordinator of DESERT-MAP project, will visit

    UPC. Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. BarcelonaTech.

    Computational Biology Complex Systems Research Group (

    from 27 July 2015 to 08 August 2015. The research group maintains projects with the UPC since 2011.This visit is to evaluate the possibility of the integration platform designed to desertification risk analysis to combat epidemics in Africa.

    Jones will also visit

    Vall d’Hebron University Hospital (HUVH): Tropical and International Health Center and Microbiology Department, both integrated in the International Health Project of the Catalan National Health System (PROSICS

    in the period of 10 to 14 August 2015, to discuss and evaluate the possibility of integrating DESERT-MAP platform with its monitoring systems of endemic and epidemic in Spain.

    Researchers acquire 40% of the equipment according to project HEALTHDRONES. The equipment is to improve the simulation infrastructure to test algorithms used to assess the degree of programmability of the software platform developed for UAVs.

    The first results

    Some autonomous simulation test flight controlled by our “API” in a Parrot Elite model and without GPS or GPRS or any kind of manufacturer facility have been done. They can be found here:

    Some photos are also available illustrating how we use Arduino to control the UAV. Thus, we became independent of the trading platform.

    The next steps

    The entire process will be documented in a dissertation to be completed in August 2015 ( and subsequently published in a scientific journal in the area.

    Another dissertation is underway (first results even in 2015). This tests the degree of programmability platform developed when applied to control outbreaks in populations.
