I was brainstorming on coming up with an idea based on UAV, Quadcopter application in real-time. In the area of surveillance there are many different ideas that can be employed.
For instance, tackling the area of improving battery life.
Can anyone point me out 'WHY' this is still a concern in the area of UAV and what has been done to tackle this problem 'successfully' until now? Has anyone extended the life, if so by how much? Any papers to point out the work will be useful.
What about the area of obstacle avoidance. Any area(s) that are unexplored in this? If so, why are they unexplored, any papers in this regard will be helpful in my understanding.
This forum will help me add the flame to my brainstorming.
