when 7 August 2023 - 18 August 2023
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 EC

This course will teach you the basics of computer vision-based drones, often used in environmental monitoring and sustainable precision farming applications. You will work in teams of 3-4 students on theory and laboratory exercises focusing on value sensitive design, drone hardware and software, computer vision algorithms and drone operations.

The exercise results will lead to a mini project where you will design, construct and operate a multirotor drone and camera payload. The teaching and laboratory exercises as well as the indoor and outdoor flight tests will take place at the nearby Danish national drone test center, UAS Denmark, at Hans Christian Andersen Airport. Transport from SDU to the test center will be provided.
