Project Deliverables

The Project plan  of Drones4Safety has been designed to meet the objectives of the project.

The structure consists of 9 Work Packages (WPs): one for project management (WP1), one technical WP for the overall drone system specification, requirements analysis and use case definitions (WP2), four parallel technical WPs (WP3-WP6), one technical work package for system integration, test bed establishment, validation and demonstration (WP7), one for dissemination, communication and exploitation (WP8) and one for ethical issues related to the project (WP9).

Each Work Package is expected to produce outputs ensuring the best achievement of a goal. These deliverables can be products, services, project reports or meetings. The table below show the list of deliverables for each work package with the report of the deliverables approved by the European Commission. 

It is possible to download the deliverable reports in order to evaluate the progress of the project.
