Abstract

The goal of this project is to create an easy-to-expand Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platform capable of conducting coordinated wide-area reconnaissance. Our system uses a combination of off-the-shelf components and open-source software to enable custom mission creation. Each drone packages and sends image, position, and orientation data over a WiFi connection to a centralized ground station computer for processing. Potential applications for this system range from search-and-rescue to surveying and inspection.
