Development of Research Projects
Students will form groups and select a UAV research topic from a provided list of topics. Examples of topics may include the configuration and operation of the UAV, accurate collection and calibration of imagery and design of appropriate field methods.
Conducting Research Projects
Data will be collected during a series of field flights, tentatively scheduled during April – May, and, in this final component of the course, the emphasis will be on the detailed analysis of the images and aerial footage obtained. Groups will prepare a final project poster, presentation, and written report to demonstrate effective communicate the results of the study, covering the development of the protocols used in the study, alongside the compilation of results obtained that address the identified research question.
