Abstract

In the past years, aerial drones have been making significant progress in performing tasks that would normally be considered too dangerous or precise for a person to execute. With recent improvements in technology, aerial drones are becoming more autonomous than ever. From military and safety applications to commercial delivery systems and recreational use, drone automation is changing the way we look at the future of common everyday services. The purpose of this project is to examine current drone automation techniques, investigate how they work, and design a do-it-yourself solution with a small budget using only off-the-shelf components.
