Design and build drones for environmental monitoring and sustainable precision farming (Summer Course)

Semester: Summer, 2024 (August 5th to 16th)
Level: BSc. Engineering
Institution: University of Southern Denmark
Website (incl. enrollment): https://www.sdu.dk/en/summerschool

This course is open to international students

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.
