Gain hands-on experience with camera drones and learn the theoretical background.
The course will feature lectures and a project part. Lectures will cover the topics from quadrotor control to computer vision. The project part consists of carrying out a robotics project with drones in our droneSpace. The project work contains a programming task using ROS (robot operation system) and C++. At the end of the course students have to take a questionnaire about the lectures.
The practical part this year is organized as a group work of groups of 2. Each group will work on the same tasks.The final goal of the practical is to program a drone to fly through the droneSpace while avoiding and obstacle. The project is divided into several tasks, consisting of an environment mapping task, a path planning tasks and an trajectory generation task. Each group has to demonstrate its solution in a flying demo and present it in a final presentation.
The course grade will be based on the grades for the project work, project presentation and a questionnaire.
