Cost-Effective Surveying Using Multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Mentor: Wenlong Zhang
KEEN: Spring 2018

This project focuses on taking advantage of the low cost and ease of use of quadcopters for performing topological surveys via an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) that will autonomously task a fleet of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to partition and survey a user-designated land area. The researcher has bilateral communication between a quadcopter and an Android tablet that lets the user monitor the status of a quadcopter and send simple commands and missions to the quadcopter. This project is an opportunity for the researcher to develop their technical skills in addition to using the Entrepreneurial Mindset outside of the classroom.
