About Me:
I'm a guy that loves to fly.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I want to build my own a UAV to capture remote sensing data, specifically high resolution orthorectified aerial photography. I want a relatively cheap, easy and consistent method of collecting this data on a regular frequency. I want to do this legally and i want my efforts to facilitate the efforts of other members of this community. i hope to learn and help others along the way.

Drone set up / Goals / Current Status

Posted on October 18, 2012 at 8:00am 2 Comments

Goal: Autonomous / semi-autonomous aerial mapping for creating georectified orthogonal imagery and eventually digital surface/elevation/terrain models (DEM, DTM). I'm in preliminary stages... though I believe that my POC is proven and so currently in testing and then on to my intended pilot project.



Current aircraft platform for testing and…

Hey man,

 

I'm interested in purchasing an Arduplane w/ a U-Blox gps, and a 915 Mhz telemetry kit.  I want to fly over an area and take a series of pictures.

Best case scenario:

I would like my set up to be able to...

  1. Have ground control software to autonomously fly over predetermined path throughout a 160 acre corn field. (graphing)
  2. Using a Canon PowerShot A4000 IS, take a series of pictures over this field every 2-5 seconds and be georeferenced.
  3. Use the series of photos and have software autonomously stitch the images together to give me one semi-seamless photo.
  4. Finally produce color, IR, and NDVI images from my stitched photo.

 

Any input on what plane, camera (if A4000 wont  be applicable), stitching software, etc I would need to pull this off.  Email me anytime if you like or on this site is fine.  drewschlumpf@gmail.com

 

Thanks!

 

Best,

Drew
