Reminder – the Flying Bison coffee talk will be in Olin 268 at noon today. Here’s the message center listing for the event:
Dan Farrell ’12 and Nick Urban ’12 will be giving the coffee talk on Monday, September 26 at Noon in the Olin auditorium (Olin 268). The title of their talk is “The Flying Bison: A Student UAV Project.”
ABSTRACT: UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) are becoming increasingly prominent in various fields of study and work. To better understand and explore these applications, we constructed a UAV to compete in the 9th Annual AUVSI Student Unmanned Air Systems Competition. Following the competition, we adapted our system to fill an experimental role in aerial photography, land surveying, and environmental restoration. We will discuss the design of our automated system and present video footage that displays the performance and potential for future operations of our UAV.
Pizza and drinks will be provided.
