Industrial UAV Systems  

Using aerial vehicles to aide in industrial applications
3.5 Credits

Prerequisites - Introduction to Robotic Automation is required before taking this course.
      ** The next Intro to Robotic Automation class starts July 10th, so if you haven't taken this prereq already and want in this class, sign up now!

While quadcopters and other RC vehicles are fun to play with, we want to teach students a more functional use for these emerging devices. We feel the key to this is to incorporate more autonomous functions besides manual control alone. This can be further enhanced by the addition of more mechanical control systems to allow it to perform a wide array of specific tasks. This could include site surveys, cable running, perimeter security, product delivery, inspection, or just a floating "helping hand". Keep in mind that these devices are not limited in size and their use in industry will be quite substantial.
