Examples of research areas

  • DTI has strong activities in the use of fuel cells as new energy systems to solve the challenges on robustness and flight time. 
  • DTI's division for agriculture and food industry, AgroTech, employs 50 people with spealized knowledge in food technologies, bio resources, crop technologies and field trials and analysis. AgroTech explores the use of drones and the latest sensors technologies to predict, detect and treat crop diseases and anomalies. 
  • DTI's Concrete Centre, which is the largest knowledge centre in Denmark, works on activities such as R&D, certification, testing, and consultancy on infrastructure projects related to concrete technology. Their interdisciplinary team and well-equipped lab enable testing and assessing the conditions of concrete materials and structure in small and large scale. Within an infrastructure assessment context, we are currently explorin the use of drones for inspection of buildings and infrastructure in cooperation with DTI's Robot Centre. 
  • DTI has one of Europe's leading robotics innovation centers with a staff of more than 40 robotic experts. The drone activities range from data collection and processing with state-of-the-art sensors to the development of autonomous cooperating drone systems. 
  • DTI is active in standardication and certification of components and systems. 
  • DTI produces analysis and reports on drone markets and development and was a primary source for National Drone Strategy launched by the Danish government in 2016.
