  1. 1. Design of a UAV-based radio receiver for avalanche beacon detection using software defined radio and signal processing

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Signaler och System

    Author : Richard Hedlund; [2019]
    Keywords : Signal processing; Software Defined Radio; Avalanche; Beacon; Antenna; SDR; DSP; Signalbehandling; Mjuvarudefinierad Radio; Lavin; Lavinsändare; Antenn; SDR; DSP;

    Abstract : A fully functional proof of concept radio receiver for detecting avalanche beacons atthe frequency 457 kHz was constructed in the work of this master thesis. The radioreceiver is intended to be mounted on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or drone)and used to aid the mountain rescue teams by reducing the rescue time in findingavalanche victims carrying a transmitting beacon.

  2. 2. RGB and Multispectral UAV image classification of agricultural fields using a machine learning algorithm

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Sigurbjörn Jónsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; UAV; classification; Random Forest; Geomatics; segmentation; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : A common technique within image analysis is image classification which describes the process of reducing the information content of an image into few user-defined classes. With the emergence of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), high spatial resolution (cm-level) images can be collected. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analysis of autonomous flight algorithms for an unmanned aerial vehicle

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Mattias Sjöberg; [2018]
    Keywords : UAV; SLAM; Split-And-Merge; APFA; V-REP; Inverse dynamics; FBLC; EKF;

    Abstract : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) have been heavily studied in the past decade, where autonomous flights have been a popular subject. More complex applications have led to higher requirements on the autonomous flight algorithms and the absence of performance data complicates the selection of what algorithm to use for various applications.

  4. 4. Converting an existing .NET Framework ground control software into a cross-platform application

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Programvara och system

    Author : Erik Boman; [2018]
    Keywords : .NET Framework; Xamarin; UWP; Mono; Ground Control Station; Cross Platform;

    Abstract : Unmanned aerial vehicles can be used in many different situations such as, for example, monitoring the growth of crops or for surveillance of a private property. Operating the unmanned aerial vehicle is usually done using some kind of ground control station. READ MORE

  5. 5. Safe Navigation of a Tele-operated Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC)

    Author : Daniel Duberg; [2018]
    Keywords : unmanned aerial vehicle; safe navigation; tele-operated; robotics; drones; UAV; indoor; collision avoidance; human-UAV interface; interface; human-robot interface; computer science;

    Abstract : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can navigate in indoor environments and through environments that are hazardous or hard to reach for humans. This makes them suitable for use in search and rescue missions and by emergency response and law enforcement to increase situational awareness. READ MORE
