Case study: The flying eye
Embedded vision solution with USB 3.0 board-level camera
How can a drone help in a disaster situation? Drones can be put to a variety of uses, such as taking water samples, casting down life belts, or providing geodata and images from areas that are difficult or even impossible for people to access.
For the latter task, the AKAMAV team, a working group comprising students and employees from the Braunschweig University of Technology, which is supported by the Institute of Flight Guidance (IFF) at TU Braunschweig, has constructed a specially-equipped multicopter.
