Design and simulate a drone to assist in moving a payload of ~2 kg around a human inhabited spacecraft. The design will have to consider a zero g environment as well as navigating through confined spaces.

This project is solving the ZERO GEE Bee – Your Friendly Neighborhood Drone challenge.


We aim to produce a detailed design and simulation of an autonomous aerial vehicle which has the capability to: - autonomously navigate a populated spacecraft - safely transport a 2 kg payload a suitable distance (~5m) - pick up and detach the payload

This will be achieved through the use of 3D modelling software (CAD) as well as simulators such as Gazebo.
