This project is solving the ZERO GEE Bee – Your Friendly Neighborhood Drone challenge. Description
WHO ARE WE Students of Northern India Engineering college,Delhi. we are currently working for NASA SpaceApps challenge where we have opted ZERO GEE BEE as our challenge. SOME OF OUR PAST CHALLENGES WERE: ROBOMINTON The National ABU Robocon 2015 took place in the Badminton Hall of the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Balewadi, Pune (5-7) March 2015. The theme for Robocon 2015 has been declared by Televisi Republik as ROBOMINTON ie,badminton playing robot.
FUTURE COMPETITION/CURRENT PROJECT AUVSI The aim of this project is to build a UAS which can be controlled through remote control or autonomously through an on-board autopilot and compete in AUVSI SUAS competition held every year in USA. The team will design and implement a GPS system for the Drone to perform instructions such as fly the Drone to a pre-determined location using GPS feedback, and return to controller location when the Drone flies out of communication range.
ABOUT OUR CURRENT PROJECT ~ ZERO GEE BEE - Your Friendly Neighborhood Drone challenge We all know drones can deliver death on the battlefield, but might they also soon be delivering presents to your door? It will work, and it will happen! Technical, safety, and logistical hurdles aside, such a scheme would actually be illegal in the U.S. today without the approval of the Federal Aviation Administration, which has tightly restricted the private use of drones. Because all commercial use is restricted in the U.S., the public is much more familiar with the military uses of the bigger, expensive vehicles and may not realize all the ways these types of smaller vehicles may be used to help them. Our project 'ZEPPELIN-ZG' is about a quadcopter which is capable of doing the following tasks: You can just push a button or launch them by hand to see them fly, and you don't need a remote anymore—they are guided by GPS and are inherently safe. 3-D Mapping Small, lightweight drones may look like simple model airplanes, but they can survey landscapes with thousands of digital images that can be stitched together into 3-D maps. Military and other government satellites produce similar maps, but emerging UAV technology can put that capability in the hands of small companies and individuals, to be customized and used for a seemingly endless variety of applications. Down on the Farm Agriculture, far and away, is going to be the dominant market for UAV operations. A lot of the farmland there is on steep hillsides, and those vehicles can treat an acre in five minutes that's very difficult or even impossible to do with a tractor. The precision agriculture movement uses technology to monitor fields, increasing yields and saving money. Drone cameras that spot where nitrogen levels are low, meanwhile, or watch the growth of a specific field section, can also help farmers. Drones with infrared light cameras can reveal plant health by reflecting how efficient photosynthesis is in various plants. Search and Rescue Missions are time-consuming, expensive, and often dangerous for the people involved. The use of well-equipped drones is increasing for SAR and could soon become a standard way to cover large areas of inaccessible terrain, even at night.
