We have a number of positions open on the upcoming EU H2020 project
MULTIDRONE where we will develop drone technology for the film industry,
especially dynamic, outdoor, sports-like events.

*Partners:* MULTIDRONE involves 9 partners that include 3 leading
broadcasters: DEUTSCHE WELLE (DE), RAI (IT), BBC (UK) and many other
Research and Commercial partners: THALES (FR), APT(GR), UNIV SEVILLA (ES),
ALERION (FR), IST-ID (PT) and coordinator Univ of Bristol (UK).

*Vision:* MULTIDRONE aims to develop an innovative, intelligent,
multi-drone platform for media production to cover outdoor events, which
are typically held over wide areas (at stadium/city level). The 4-10 drone
team, to be managed by the production director and crew, will have: a)
increased decisional autonomy, by minimizing production crew load and
interventions and b) improved robustness, security and safety mechanisms
(e.g., embedded flight regulation compliance, enhanced crowd avoidance,
autonomous emergency landing, communications security), enabling it to
carry out its mission even against adverse conditions or crew inaction and
to handle emergencies.

*Challenges:* Visual Mapping (spatial and semantic),
Cinematically-interesting awareness, non rigid visual tracking, systems
integration, drone systems and safety, human in the loop and related.

*4 current jobs at Bristol University:*

-*Research Associate/Senior Research Associate on multiple drone computer
vision (active perception) for audiovisual shooting.
