Aerial Photogrammetry vs. Terrestrial Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry is a technology that combines photography and geometry. The principle is very simple, yet it has a huge impact on current architectural works. What it does is something like this:

Photography gives 2D representations. The system generates 3D measurements of the surface and object from a photograph. Aerial and terrestrial are two major types of photogrammetry.

  • Aerial…

Multiple UAV Path Planning and Optimization

I have recently finished my Master studies in electrical engineering and robotics. The focus of my thesis are UAVs and the title is UAV Navigation for Area Coverage and Time Optimization. One of the goals of this study was to answer two questions:

  1. What is the best path that will reduce each UAV flight time and the overall mission time?
  2. Does…

Design of a multi-rotor VTOL UAV and docking station for automated aerial transport

Last academic year at KU Leuven, we designed, built and test flown a VTOL UAV: the VertiKul. During this project we gratefully made use of the info and support of the DIY Drones community and therefore we would like to share our results on this project.

The VertiKul is designed for automated aerial…

Two men from Inwood arrested after they flew drone near George Washington Bridge, nearly hit NYPD helicopter.

First off these guys were in the wrong and got caught, I am not defending the stupidity of flying close to an aircraft. However, to create a story with a headline "nearly hit" misleading most. Drones can be dangerous if flown next to aircraft. This is theoretically possible and flyers should stay away to…

PRE-Flight RC Simulator Drone Edition

It is my pleasure to present the PRE-Flight RC Simulator Drone Edition.
In my experience, 50% of beginners totally destroy their RC aircraft in the first week. About 25% destroy them in their first flight. This is a costly exercise, as the typical FPV-capable drone start at around $400 and may…

It’s Okay to Call Them Drones. Seriously, That’s What They’re Called

Hi everyone, 

Although it is less of an issue for the DIY/hobby end of things (we all seem able to use the word 'drone' without thinking of hellfire missiles), but I've been getting pretty tired of the argument in wider circles and dancing around trying not…
