  2. 2. Propulsion system for a small unmanned aerial vehicle

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI); KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Dennis Wikman; Oscar Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : For unmanned aerial vehicles there is a wide variety of selection for propulsion systems. Depending on the specific choice of system, the characteristics of the aircraft vary significantly. The choice is also dependent on the size of the UAV itself as well as desired performance and utility. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessing annual forest phenology: a comparison of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and phenocamera datasets

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Shangharsha Thapa; [2020]
    Keywords : Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; Near-surface Remote Sensing; UAV; Phenocamera; Forest Phenology; Phenophase; Seasonality; NDVI; GCC; Geomatics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Near-surface remote sensing platforms such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and phenocameras appear to be potential platforms for keeping track of seasonal dynamics at a local scale. This research focusses on extracting time series of different vegetation indices (VIs) from both platforms, computing seasonality events from them and comparing the results against spectral sensor data.

  4. 4. Conceptual design and construction of a UAV wing structure

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI); KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Selma Rahman; Anujan Ranganathan; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This report presents the design of the wing structure for a UAV called Skywalker X8. A model of the UAV was given and analyzed to design a wing box structure that is twice the size of the current model, with "greener" technology and lightweight materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluated density estimates of young forest stands using high resolution 2D imagery from UAV

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Resource Management

    Author : Victor Kingstad; [2020]
    Keywords : UAV; forestry; inventory; survey; cleaning; tending; PCT; pre com-mercial thinning;

    Abstract : After more than three decades of advanced technology and methods to evaluate young forest attributes, the forestry still prefers laborious field surveys in regenera-tion forests. Preceding studies have virtually all successfully identified the saplings, but the cost has outweighed the benefits or at least not yet convinced the companies to step away from the traditional field surveys; high-resolution photogrammetric point clouds and ALS-data can provide accurate estimations of the biophysical prop-erties but requires intense data processing.
